Brazilian student Humberto Moura Fonseca posted a quote by Russian poet Vladimir Maiakovski on his Facebook account. It reads: “It is better to die from vodka than from boredom.” The 23-year-old University of Julio de Mesquita student was recently partaking in a drinking game when he consumed 25 shots of vodka in 60 seconds (fuck that’s a lot of vodka). He collapsed soon after.

Fonseca, along with several others, was rushed to intensive care for alcohol poisoning. He died on the way. The others survived.

From Metro:

A drinking competition went tragically wrong for 23-year-old Humberto Moura Fonseca when he died after downing 25 shots of vodka in less than 60 seconds.

The University of Julio de Mesquita student was taking part in a drinking game in Bauru, south-western Brazil, at the time of his death.

Police are now seeking homicide charges against the organizers of the drinking game, according to Metro.

Now appearing on my Facebook wall: “It is better to die from suffocation by the breasts of Charlotte McKinney than from boredom, or really just anything else.” Now, we wait.
