Tombstoning is the name given to the crazy act of jumping from cliffs and monuments along the seashore in the UK. The aptly named sport indicates the danger of the activity, which some Brits refer to as the sport of drunken idiots.

Implications - Although this ridiculous activity has taken many lives over the past few years, an outdoor pursuits organization is still holding to the claim that it is safely supervised. They suggest that people who want to experience the rush and thrill should do so in controlled conditions. Of the deaths that occurred, 75 percent were men and drinking was listed as a factor for many of their fatal jumps.
