I must say that the positioning of two of the men caught my eye as being inherently dangerous. I hope you enjoy the one I went with.

Split decisions … go wrong
“OMG!” Larry screamed suddenly.
Eric, Bob and Jeremy turned slightly and looked down to where Larry was in what appeared to be a precarious version of the splits. They simultaneously shouted:
“OMG!! STOP DOING THAT LARRY”
Larry took a second to think “yeah right, like I can control this” before he began bargaining with any Being that might be able to save him.
He had two prevalent thoughts. One was that he would fall, intact, to his death. Intact that is until he hit the ground very, very far below.
The second was that prior to falling he somehow split down the middle, surviving but no longer a real man!
Where was his life flashing before his eyes? All Larry got was images of his manhood splitting and a violent death.
Larry suddenly realised that his split decision to join his friends on their idiotic dare was going to cost him!!!
