Picking a safe spot to pass out drunk is ALWAYS tricky. It's hard to rationally think through your options after 12 shots of Jim Beam. But drill this one into your head: AVOID DUMPSTERS.
--On Thursday night, 27-year-old Justin Gilpatrick of Portland, Oregon was out drinking. When he left the bar, he was too drunk to drive his car home, so he decided to take a nap . . . and picked a DUMPSTER to sleep in.
--But while he was inside, the garbage truck came for a middle-of-the-night pickup. The truck dumped the full contents of the bin into its container . . . including Justin. And then it COMPACTED the trash. TWICE.
--Amazingly, Justin survived BOTH times, and only wound up with minor injuries. He was taken to a hospital about two hours after the dump truck picked him up. The police aren't planning to file any charges.
