I read this morning about a 6 year old who jumped a 4' (or maybe 5')
fence to get closer to a leopard. The leopard, off course, struck
through the bars and injured the boy.
With social darwinism in mind, why not make it Easier for those who
have a faulty sense of self preservation to eliminate
the gene pool?
At the zoo, a ladder to a platform above the fence with a fireman's pole
into the exhibit. You would have to pass multiple signs saying:
If you want to feed yourself to our dangerous animals, be our guest. It
will certainly cut down on their feeding costs.
I also think they ought to bolt diving boards on to certain bridges. I
don't remember which sci fi author I stole the diving board idea from-
my guess is Larry Niven

||As someone who got to treat the idiots who jumped off
the railroad bridge in Santa Cruz, head first into 3 feet of
water, I have to vote [-]. It would lead to more families
with teenagers who will spend the rest of their lives
hooked to a ventilator and requiring 24-hour care.
||Klaatu, I think the psychological aspect of having the diving board
provided might act as a prevention itself.
||Bigsleep, I tried, believe me. Jumping off roofs and imitating evil
knenivel on a one speed bike. I'm lucky I made it through year 6,
||There weren't any signs daring me to tempt instant death,
though. Not even in the race track down the hill in the woods.
||I WON that race. I was the first one able to shake off the pain
from the horrible crash at the giant ramp near the end.
||Make fun of my '50's schwinn. Bah! It beat your Redlines and
Mongooses, didn't it?
||An entrance archway festooned with images of previous users
(afterdeath or injury) might put people off. So leave that bit out.
||Some zoo exhibits might be able to climb the fireman's pole. Not
that that's an issue per se
||Thanks to you, [IT], we don't have to.
||Well, there goes the Darwin Awards. Perhaps they could grab a feral cat on their way in... [+]
||Sounds like something that tax accountants would believe
