Most of those stories I actually find more sad and pathetic rather than funny.

"They should document more harmless stupidity; when they die, the premise somehow becomes less funny."

No, see...these are the DARWIN awards, named after Charles Darwin, who is famous for...

Y`know what? Forget it.

I enjoy the Darwin Awards, I really do.

To those who spot problems with a story, report it. They investigate these things. Like the NATO story was moved from a winner to an urban legend.

What I don`t like about this is that they made a movie out of it. In news report form I can`t get emotionally involved with the potential award winner, but if I put a face with the idiot... I wouldn`t be able to live with myself for laughing.

I love laughing at all sorts of funny ways people find to kill themselves. It`s especially funny when they blow their brains out of their skulls. :-)

for the guy cutting off his jewels the reason he can be included is because he can`t procreate so his genes are no longer within the gene pool. Thus making the human race potentially that much better.

I like how all the readers comments are just evil little puns. :D

Osprey39 - I think he`d use the gernade as a weight to drop the brush through the chimney.

So how exactly can you clean a chimney with a chain, a brush, and a grenade? I don`t get it.

I just raed through the list. These things read like some hokey Readers Digest article. No proof is given to confirm any of these. Back to the bull I guess.

I still have trouble beleiving some of these. There are small inconsistancies that bug me. For instance, one of the stories mentions a man drinking in Hanoi in 2005. It hasn`t been called Hanoi since 1974, it`s been Ho Chi Min City since the end of the war. Smells like the back end of the bull to me.

I shrugged SO bad when reading about the ball-cutting.

Never underestimate the power of human stupidity!

-You look for me on here next year. My sis says she`s going to try get me and my friends a Darwin award, because next month we`re gonna buy an ounce of weed and try topping the bowls with midol, icy hot, and any other stupid stuff we can think of.-

You can`t smoke a pill or a gel...That alone proves you have the necessary IQ for a Darwin. Secondly, you`d be better of just ODing on the Midol, the weed really doesn`t add any deadly affects. (To OD on weed, it takes almost 40,000 times more than you need to get high.) Seeing how back in my pothead days, ie a little over a month ago, by the end of the day I would have smoked upmost an ounce by myself...you`re going to need a lot more than that between a few people to kill yourself.

Good luck, though. We`re all rootin for you.

I stopped after reading seven or eight. Those are violent! They should document more harmless stupidity; when they die, the premise somehow becomes less funny.
