winner announcements from the jumperpool.com old days.
   from 1998-2010, jumperpool.com offered visitors the option to guess when the next person stepped off the bridge and into the afterlife. as the site became more focused on jumper prevention and information, the jumperpool guessing feature was discontinued in 2011 and jumperpool.com became skywaybridge.com. all the same content, just no more guesswork. all winner listings and associated dialog were also removed at that time and are presented here in archive.

comments: I swear I have been betting on this for 10 years now and still have not won once. I think I have poor psychic abilities. (your psycho abilities are now on. sarah is a long time fan and facebook friend.) she replies:
It's a Christmas miracle!!!! Although if we were playing this game on the Price is Right, I would have gone over in time and thus, not won. Thanks for making the rules your own. I actually have not been visiting the site as much as I used to because I went back to school this semester to get my masters, so I have not had mind numbingly boring jobs to fill my life with time wasted on the internet instead of working. I do love the holiday feel you have given the site; nothing says merry Christmas like reading about suicide surrounded by festive colors.
It's just the type of macabre cheer that I love! Thanks for doing what you do. (we're sorry your visits here were "time wasted on the internet". just kidding, it's the same for us too. we waste far too much time with this jumper crap. not sure if our tomato soup meets split pea color scheme is really as christmasy as we had hoped, but it's close enough. thanks for your support and enthusiasm. best of everything with your schooling and masters.)

wished it was: Cowboy Bob Orton because: He cheated when he and Rowdy Roddy Piper wrestled Hulk Hogan and Mr. T. He used his arm cast as a weapon and hid foreign objects in the cast. If there's one thing I can't stand it is a cheater in pro wrestling.

comments: Maybe you should call the jumpers "leapers" instead. The family and friends of victims might like that better. (leapers, droppers, descenders, anti-elevation enthusiasts, unskilled high divers, plungers, gravity test technicians, or any other wording that describes jumpers, would all have the same meaning as 'jumpers'. besides, leaperpool.com could easily be misspelled as leperpool.com and that would be a totally different result. amy is a long time jumperpool fan, she nailed all of the extra bonus points, and this is her second time winning. we enjoy her occasional humorous input. this, of course, had no bearing on her winning this particular jump.)

comments: WOW! On my first try, even! I first came to your website after seeing it listed as "The Cruel Site of the Day" a while back. Until a few days ago, I only stopped by to "catch up". Then, on the 28th, I took my kids (13 & 15) to the same Ellenton Outlet mall that Dick K. was headed to for some school clothes shopping. On the way over the bridge I told the kids about your site and what I had learned reading it. That Tuesday they asked me to see the site and I showed them. They prodded me to make a guess. The only date I could come up with was August 9th. My sister's 36th birthday was the 8th and I figured, jokingly, someone would want to "opt-out" after that bash. Further, I'd like to thank the Academy and my agent, without whom I wouldn't be here. And finally, PUT THE DOLPHIN BACK... Hey! Quit shoving me. I know my time is up. PUT THE... I just have one more thing to say. LET ME GO! PUT THE DOLPHIN BACK IN TUNA!!!!!

comments: this is funny. I love it. I always wanted to make a site that featured gambling on other people's misfortunes, and now I've found it. I just hope someone commits suicide on Jan 27th 2002 at 3:10 pm EST now. I'll have to find some suicidal maniac friend to do it now. Does it count if they stand at the top of the bridge and shoot themselves, and fall into the water with a bullet in their head, because it would be a quicker death for them? (yes, as long as they end up falling off the bridge, it would count, but you would not get extra points.)

comments: well, i just got me a few questions. if that there jumper hits them there rocks, won't them there, what ya call them birds, oh yea, pel-e-kins just eat ther remains that are splatted on them rocks.  and if they hit the water, won't them whales, sharks, squids, lobsters, etc. eat everything includin ther bones? so why do us tax abiding citizens have to pay fer that there clean up. i say let mother nature clean up the mess! (there have been so few jumpers, we will accept any skyway related incident we can get. it seems william dusty sallee decided to drive his truck at a high rate of speed through a thick concrete wall off the skyway fishing pier, which at one time was the original skyway bridge. we're guessing the guy was more likely dead before he hit the water. good thing no one else was hurt. bobby-ray nailed the time.) *pun intended.
