Running for a Darwin Award

A Michigan man dispatched himself with an act of spectacular stupidity that should put him in the running for a Darwin award.

I cannot believe anyone would do something this stupid and people who would do it should not be allowed outside without adult supervision.

And then a few blocks away another man tries the same thing but falls and injures himself before he can kill himself.

Is there something in the water in Detroit?

I knew copper was valuable right now but good grief.

Bizarro!! Although, I did hear recently about someone stealing air conditioners from a church and I wondered why and someone said for the copper. How much is copper worth??????????

Copper is of real value at this time.

Interestingly enough, I was speaking to a young fellow the other day who said, "I made $1500 with two hours of work".
It was done legally. A church had moved three temp buildings from their property and offered the copper to him. He pulled it out of the ground with his truck.

These other guys are either on drugs, or just plain idiots. Actually, it's probably both...

Someone once said that the biggest difference between genuis and stupidity is that genius has limits. Never underestinate the power of human stupidity.

I remember, sadly with no linkage, recently hearing about some fool putting live ammo in a vise, hitting it with a hammer and nail so he could scrap out the brass.
