2 thoughts on “The Best of “Idiot Award” – 5”

  1. I love your website and thanks for all the work.

    I’d bet others have told you this but I cut and paste from Wiki:
    The Darwin Awards are a tongue-in-cheek honor, originating in Usenet newsgroup discussions circa 1985. They recognize individuals who have supposedly contributed to human evolution by self-selecting themselves out of the gene pool via death or sterilization by their own actions.

    In other words…you have to die or become sterile to receive this award. The ones you’re listing aren’t really Darwin’s.

  2. Yeeeeeah, you’re really not getting this whole “Darwin Awards” thing.


    “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. “
