Well, I'm sure they went with a bang...


Naked couple found on the ground next to their apartment building, clothes found on the roof. I'm sure the end was rather exhilarating.

There is a Darwin Award from two years back. Plane crashed. Both occupants were found naked and tangled up in the pilot's seat. Both were licensed pilots.

One wonders if this song (http://www.mondaypapers.com/summerinthecity/summersong.html) was playing in the background?

What a let down, although they're now "lifetime" members of the 50-foot club...

"Get a room!"

Not a roof. :)

I suppose its safe to say they left the world the same way they came in.

Naked and screaming.

How did the guy land?To paraphrase Bruce Willis, the same way he was fated to die: hard.

As did his partner.

Bet they were having a great time until immediately after that last inch.

Reminds me of the advertising slogan for the Warsaw Parachute Company:
Good to the last drop!

Methinks this is a pretty extreme alternative to just pulling out.

Instead of rolling in the hay, they rolled off the roof.

When someone mentions "rolling in the hay", this image pops into my head:

"Roll, roll, roll in the hay! Roll, roll, roll in the hay!"

(sound of whip cracking)

I guess another stanza from my signature song didn't quite work out for this couple...

That right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that's troubleproof
And if this old world starts a getting you down
There's room enough for two
Up on the roof...

I hope a blanket was also found, otherwise they'd be rolling in tar, grit, and pigeon poop...

Not really. Most roofs I've been on in the last ten years have been fairly pristine, even after more than a decade (or four).

Tar is used only very rarely in this day and age. Most of it is EPDM or a built up modified bitumous system. Regular rains keep it extremely clean, even roofs with extremely low slopes.

At worst, if the building's roof wasn't mechanically fastened (a techie term for "screwed down"), it was a ballasted roof covered in smooth riverstone (gravel is too jagged, punctures the membrane).

It might be the technical words for what I was thinking, but I have seen modern roofs that are pretty much a rubber membrane glued to something that resembles styrofoam. They do stay rather clean.

That's assuming it was a modern roof. It could be an older building.

Still, "rather" clean isn't what I'd want to be naked on, I prefer clean...

You've got it. EPDM is the jargon for the rubber membrane. The foam underneath EPDM is typically polyisocyanurate. The polyiso board is the insulation, the EPDM is just waterproofing.

Well there is one that should have been on the top 100 list. Well, a top 100 for comedy at least.

I would agree with you there, but think of it this way. What kind of mindset would you be in to be up there doing that anyway?

Clothing was discovered on the roof of the four-story building, leading authorities to suspect the man and woman, in their early 20s, may have been having sex...

Nice work, Sherlock!




Far more likely, however, they removed their clothes due to global warming :whistle:

It could have gone like this:

MAN: I can't take life anymore, I'm going to end it all! But, you know, my brother really likes this suit. I don't want to ruin it for him. (takes off clothes and jumps.)

WOMAN: Honey, are you up her? That's strange, here's his clothes, but where...? Oh no, he jumped down and killed himself! I can't live without him! But I borrowed this dress from Madge, I can't mess it up. (takes off clothes) Goodbye cruel world!

See? Perfectly innocent. ;)
