My favourite was a lady who decided to masturbate using the handle on a broom... thing is (as the long handle was awkward, I guess?) she decided to do this on top of her fridge. Yes, she fell off and no she did not survive. (Read this is the 2nd Darwin Awards book).

wasnt this on mythbusters??

@ferdyfred: idk, but perhaps Mythbusters looked at an American version which was a myth?

I'd met a fellow who used to work with this guy, and had seen "the demonstration" first hand! Years later he read about the death in the newspaper, and followed up on the aftermath part.

So idk if it's "truly true" but I believe so.

@davymid
and that is what a darwin award is. darwin awards are given to people who unwillingly committed suicide due to their own stupidity.

Some of those sound "urban mythy" but I know #5 is a fact.

He was a Lawyer and also taught law. He'd won a case in court by proving that high-rise windows were so strong, the other side's theory was impossible.
He'd often demonstrate this in his office lobby by rushing at a window full speed! He'd bounce off every time!
Except, of course, the LAST time!
His family sued of course: but the window maker (or building people) won: it isn't "normal use" to charge into a window 100s of times...

@YugureKage he used a chainsaw. prior to decapitating himself, his friend one up him by cutting off his toes with a chainsaw. we're to assume he did the same to win the game.

Wait a second. Of all the heavy objects fella could have chosen to weight down a broom to "gravity-sweep" his chimney, he chose a motherf*cking grenade? Why not a rock? And he welded it to the broom?

Sorry, that's not a Darwin Award, that's a guy attempting suicide.

Lolz! Death is a funny thing!

I'd like to see someone cut off their own head...I mean, if that one was true, that would mean the guy sat there cutting at his head while the others just watched. Plus, I don't think he'd be able to do that with a knife on his own, once he hit an artery he'd bleed out and die. So I want to know how this guy did it? What did he use to cut off his head?

I feel like the Toronto lawyer one shouldn't have been a Darwin award. There's no reason anyone should expect a skyscraper's windows not to hold up.
