Darwin's Theory Strikes Again.

The finalists for this year's prestigious Darwin Awards are out (and dead as well.)

For those who do not know, the Darwin Awards are given (posthumously) to those who improve the human genetic pool by eliminating themselves from it through acts of spectacular and deadly STUPIDITY!

How does one drink Anally and how does one accidentally kill himself doing? Why would anyone do it?

I also enjoyed the illustrations of "Darwin Moments"

Attempting an armed robbery at a gunshop


Attaching forty-two 4' diameter helium filled balloons to a lawnchair and rapidly rising over three miles straight up!




Proving how macho you are by intentionally cutting off your own head! (Yes he was drunk when he did it)

I think it was Einstein who said the biggest difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has limits.

Happy New Year, my brother and friend.

Sheesh, Shoprat! There are so many people out there who make us look like absolute geniouses! Walt was disqualified from being a pilot too, something that truly disappointed him, but he never even thought of doing something like the lawn chair trick. Whew! How do people get to be that stupid? Is it genetic or do they work at it? Do you suppose they were born with upside-down brains? Sooo many questions and no real answers. *sigh*

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

That brings to mind the quite-logical phrase: "thinning the herd."

as I recall, the urban myth about the lawnchair guy was both validated, and then proved credible by those clowns on 'mythbusters'. I tjhought the Darwin's onlt went to doofi that killed themselves and I thought the ride ended safely? I guess I'll have to recheck Snopes.
