If you say it, mean it. Well, that wasn't exactly the intention of an allegedly inebriated 19-year-old at Disney's California Adventure last night. The man and his friends were on the top platform waiting in line at the Tower of Terror when he reportedly joked, "wouldn't it be funny if I fell?" as he climbed over the railing. He then, of course, fell, plunging 20 to 25 feet to the ground. That would be darwin award worthy, but not to fret, he didn't even break a bone, just suffered some abrasions, explains ABC7.
