Only people who die can qualify for the Darwin Awards--by removing themselves from the gene pool. The rest are merely stupid.

wondered the same thing :)

but, saw this yesterday, perhaps he's one of the "I hate the nanny state" crowd so needed to really show his freedom.

All the way to St. Peter's gates that is...

The original purpose of the (Charles) Darwin Awards was to exemplify "survival of the fittest." The stupid were removing themselves from the gene pool by killing themselves in stupid ways. Recently the term has been applied to mere stupidity, not just stupidity resulting in death.

As they say, stupid is the only crime. One for which there is no cure save death.

I felt this item could fit nicely into an existing thread and this one's title was the most generic of the Darwin Award types.

Yes, it does. In the OP's link, nobody died.

Maybe unfortunately, many of the winners/qualifiers have already passed on their genes.

Sadly, this is possible, But they will never do so again.

You have to die before having children at that.

Also, if you injure yourself resulting in the inability to reproduce, but otherwise survive, you still qualify.

Maybe he'll get knifed in the shower while in prison, Would that make it a Darwin award?
I mean really, Policing threads? What next? At least provide links and explain yourself.
This complacent attitude sucks.
