Would you scream falling to your death?

Watching the latest commercial this afternoon from Priceline during Ferris Bueller's day off on Comedy Central, the commercial had some guy being shoved out the window by William Shatner's character from a hotel building and the man him screaming on his way down to his death (not so fast, he's saved by a pool down below).

Now, that got me thinking. Having looked back at other commercials and movies over the last 60 or more years where a lot of movies continue being played today on cable networks and premium channels, I don't think I really ever recall someone falling off a high place to their death and not screaming, with the possible exceptions of maybe a couple of times.

I'm thinking I'm one of those people that probably wouldn't scream unless it was to maybe warn people down below that I'm falling and get the hell out of the way unless they wanna be taken out. Other than that, I think I would try to find a way out of that situation and trying to pull a MacGyver in mid air before it was too late.

If I didn't think I could escape it, I'm pretty sure I would be praying instead of screaming.

Now, that leads me to my question. I know most if not everyone is unsure what they would do unless they were in that situation, but in all honesty, what do you think you would do in that situation?

Bonus question:

If you happen to see someone falling to their death, would you watch as they hit the pavement? Or maybe breakout your phone to take pics of it, or camcorder and videotape it as it went down to only put it on youtube for millions to watch that person fall to their death, and have the end result on it as well? Or would you turn your head away and not ever glance back to see the aftermath with the blood and guts all over the pavement?

For me, I would not want to see any of it!

Hell yeah I'd be screaming as I was falling.....and I ain't afraid to admit to it.

As for if I saw someone falling....I don't think I'd have time to get my phone out to record it, and even if I, I wouldn't. I wouldn't want to see them land. So yeah, I'd be one who looked away.

I'd probably say what Harry Chapin's character said in this song (along about 3:25), as
the character faces his own death.
(This old song can be seen as tragic, gory, hilarious, or a combination of the three. YOU decide!)
