Ah, a graphic demonstration of the Darwin Award. Or, how really stupid people (almost always young males) take themselves out of the gene pool.
@2: You beat me to it: that has Darwin written all over it.
If you were to do a very short, alegorical film about Iraq this would be it.
Stop. Drop. And Roll. He get's an A.
Was I supposed to learn something important from this?
Oil can on fire + sudden decompression = bad. I kinda coulda figured that out.
mr poe, you did see this gentleman, no?
@2 & 4
Don't you have to, um, die to get the Darwin award? If not, I mean pretty fucked up? This guy looks fine. He's on the road to getting a Darwin award, but this is nowhere near big league.
I did now. Hilarious.
@5 - Careful! You might get your property seized!
Technically you only have to burn off your naughty bits before knocking up the girl next door to win a darwin award.
I'm once again impressed by the myriad uses of WD40: eliminates squeaks, deices locks, educates jerkwads ...
The original "Boom Goes the Dynamite". Sorry, pyros, no fire in this one. But I love this guy!
@9: There are five requirements.
(1) Reproduction: removed from gene pool (dead or sterile)
(2) Excellence: astounding misapplication of judgment
(3) Self-selection: cause of one's own demise/sterility
(4) Maturity: capable of sound judgment
(5) Veracity: event must be true
So, yes, this fellow fails on the first count. However, in spirit, this guy is well on his way.
Famous last words: "Hey guys, lookit this!"
We need more of this and less Mudede.
Yes, yes, I suppose technically this doesn't qualify for a Darwin Award. But surely this moron is a kindred spirit to past Darwin Award winners. Smacking explosive things with a relatively short stick certainly has Darwin Award written all over it. A slightly shorter stick or a slightly larger can of WD-40 and he would have been a full fledged winner.
