A 91-year-old German man learned the hard way that doing DIY is sometimes not a simple as it appears, after he managed to glue himself to his own roof by accident.

The un-named man, in the eastern German city of Magdeburg, was apparently trying to add a coat of bitumen to his roof much to the consternation of passers-by, who were reportedly worried that he was on the roof contemplating suicide.

But concerned onlookers weren't the worst problem for the nonagenarian. The worst problem was that he then slipped on the roof, and fell on his back onto the bitumen. And then found he couldn't get up.

'When we got there, he was like a beetle on its back, with his arms and legs sprawled out and completely glued to the roof,' noted a police spokesman.

'Due to his age, he couldn't free himself from his unfortunate situation.'

The man was eventually freed by firefighters, after a complicated system of ladders and ropes was used to unstuck him from his own roof. He was reportedly uninjured, although his clothes were described 'rather sticky.'

Except he's got to survive 50+ years of his DIY to get there.

As that guy is 91 years old I start having doubts about Darwin.... but maybe Laz will put that right again.

Too late, he has already procreated.

To late. Laz has already reproduced so the DIY suicide gene wasn't strong enough to effect the selective pressures.

Too late. Mr Bas has already said that.



only without the spelling errors, or the ass-backwards attempt at biology.

The truth must be said again and again before it is accepted.

It's too late for the truth.

"Too" must be spelt correctly too many times before it is accepted.
