There's an old joke about a bloke drinking in a bar in a really tall building who jumps out the window, and is swept in another window further down the sky-scraper.
He does this three times, between drinks, and finally another punter, fascinated by this, asks him about it. "It's simple," he explains, "the wind currents around the building sweep you in every time."
The random punter wants to try it for himself, and he jumps out the window, falling to his death. The barman says "You know, you're a real bastard when you're drunk, Superman."
