Uhhh no bro, you can't do a dumb stunt and then expect people to pay for the consequences

In today on 'don't do that dude', a YouTuber who shattered his feet in a dangerous jumping stunt has asked the public to donate money for his medical bills. Anthony Booth Armer, who apparently specialises in videos where he jumps off dangerous things (everyone needs a hobby, eh?), messed his feet up real bad when he attempted to jump into a motel pool - but missed. There's a video of it happening but trust us, you don't want to see it.

Armer, who uses the username 8Booth, has set up a GoFundMe page with a target of $112,000. The general reaction has been pretty negative but he has still managed to raise over $1000 over the first three days of his campaign. It should hopefully go without saying, but don't do this. If you want to be a person who does crazy, risky stuff then fine - but don't then ask other people to pay for your mistakes - you have to deal with your own consequences like a grown up, dude. That being said, the kind of person who jumps off things for a living might not be the most grown up.
