OP, you have not heard the horror stories teachers tell about students leaning too far back and the consequences. I've heard about death, paralyzation, mental damage, and some other things.

Lol sarcasm is hard to detect over the Internet. But seriously, someone I knew died like this so don't be so quick to judge. There are a lot of ways to die or be injured that may be considered "silly"

people who get paralysed and such when they fall down are people who lack the basic instinct to try and land softly. seriously, kids are indestructible. what kind of poorly designed/evolved creature can't handle the force of it's own body hitting the ground from the height it SITS DOWN at? unless you do NOTHING to prevent from catching the pull force of your fall in the back of your kneck you will be fine. darwin awards for the kids who died falling off their chair.

47 and 50, you take things too lightly. I'm in percussion at my school and a good friend of mine was playing while sitting on a stool and slipped off and hit his temple on the drum and didn't come through. so yeah I'm gonna laugh when u guys FML for falling off a chair. fuck ya'll

Actually when I was in 4th grade I sat literally about a 1' maybe 1 1/2'... 2' max away from the teachers desk and did this exact same stunt and hit the teachers desk. It's not the floor you have to worry about, but what's there when you fall. There could be a tack that could pierce the base of your head, where the spinal cord and brain stem connect, which is also a pressure point, if it pierces it could paralyze the majority of your body.

It isn't the fall itself that does damage, it's the obstacles found in a classroom such as desk corners, pencils, scissors, open binder rings, etc... #72, you gotta think about these kinds of things. The save-the-body instinct isn't the only thing that comes into play when one falls off of a chair.
