You likely have never heard of Jeff Foran, who lives in Foreman, Arkansas. Apparently Mr. Foran, aged 38, was drunk – very drunk, it looks like – one night in May and went out for a drive. Well, as he was driving, his cigarette fell out of his fingers and out the window. Not to waste a good cigarette, Mr. Foran jumped out of his moving car to get the smoke back. The car was traveling at 100km/h.

State Trooper Jamie Gravies said that Foran suffered extreme trauma to his nose, eyes and chin and was lucky to be alive. It was the preacher Billy Sunday who said "Sin can be forgiven, but stupid is forever."
