    Fell out of his own tree or someone elses tree. God works in mysterious ways.

    Must have thought he was still a teenager. BTW, was it HIS tree? If not, no sympathy deserved. He got more than the slap on the wrist a judge would give.

    It wasn't his tree. He was guesting. Could that mean visiting without permission?

    Glad to see the guy is recovering but I would find it hard to believe he was the only one there. He didn't have a bredren that could give up a belt for 10 minutes for some avacados? Just one belt to loop through his and around the tree would have made the difference between tiger shrimp with avacado and intravenous for dinner. Tough luck buddy but count your blessings, most falls above 6ft can be fatal believe it or not. I feel bad for the guy, did he manage to get any? I'm gonna go take this guy some shrimp and avacado.
