Don't be sorry if you get what you ask for

BEIJING (Reuters) – A Chinese man was pushed off a bridge by an angry passer-by after his threat to commit suicide held up traffic for five hours, Chinese media reported on Saturday.

Retired soldier Lian Jiansheng, 66, broke through a police cordon and reached out to shake the hand of would-be jumper Chen Fuchao before shoving him off the bridge.

"I pushed him off because jumpers like Chen are very selfish. Their action violates a lot of public interests," Lai was quoted as saying by the China Daily newspaper.

"They do not really dare to kill themselves. Instead, they just want to raise the relevant government authorities' attention to their appeals."

Viral marketing for S. Darko

The sequel to the cult hit Donnie Darko had some viral marketing to promote it. Some pretty cool stuff.
PS- I saw the movie. Sometimes it felt like a remake and not really a sequel. But it did do a better job at explaining what "the end of the world" means, and did see the return of Frank the Bunny... kind of. Definitely worth a rental if you have nothing better to do on a Sunday afternoon.
