Or, got beaten up and robbed thrown into the water. 

 

We must think of the damage to the tourism industry when considering all possible scenarios. 

Fake news.

why would anyone in general say anything. i had a drunken friend go all the way to the beach to throw up. no one else cared or even paid attention that he went to the beach and passed out by the rising tide. not saying i was sober myself, but who knows what would have happened if i didn't drag him back to the sidewalk and wait till he woke up.

The gene pool would have improved?
