The Darwin Awards

October 24, 2007

A celebration of stupidity…


For those of you who haven’t ventured outside of your tiny little world in the past decade heard of these before, I really can’t give a much better description than this:

“The Darwin Awards commemorate individuals who protect our gene pool by making the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives: by eliminating themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species’ chance of long-term survival. In other words, they are cautionary tales about people who kill themselves in really stupid ways, and in doing so, significantly improve the gene pool by eliminating themselves from the human race.”

A few of my favorites to get you started:

Death by Lava Lamp

The short, but sweet Firecracker Chainsaw Massacre

and finally, the rare Living Darwin Award.
