Once again, it's time for the Darwin Award Nominees.
> "The Darwins " are awarded every year to the persons who died in the
> stupidest manner, thereby removing themselves from the gene pool.
> Here is the official 2009 list. Notice the interesting spin for this
> year's first place award which comes to us - from of all places, Arkansas .
> How surprising is that?
> (Some of) This year's nominees are:
> Nominee No. 1: ( San Jose Mercury News):
> An unidentified man, using a shotgun like a club to break a former
> girlfriend's windshield, accidentally shot himself to death when the gun
> discharged, blowing a hole in his gut.

Ken Charles Barger, 47, accidentally shot himself to death in December in
> Newton , NC Awakening to the sound of a ringing telephone beside his bed, he
> reached for the phone but grabbed instead a Smith & Wesson 38 Special, which
> discharged when he drew it to his ear.

A cigarette lighter may have triggered a fatal explosion in Dunkirk , IN.
> A Jay Countryman, using a cigarette lighter to check the barrel of a muzzle
> loader, was killed Monday night when the weapon discharged in his face,
> sheriff's investigators said. Gregory David Pryor, 19, died in his parents'
> rural Dunkirk home at about 11:30 PM. Investigators said Pryor was cleaning
> a 54-caliber muzzle-loader that had not been firing properly. He was using
> the lighter to look into the barrel when the gunpowder ignited.

Finally, THE WINNER!!!: ( Arkansas Democrat Gazette):
> Two local men were injured when their pickup truck left the road and
> struck a tree near Cotton Patch on State Highway 38 early Monday. Woodruff
> County deputy Dovey Snyder reported the accident shortly after midnight
> Monday. Thurston Poole, 33, of Des Arc, and Billy Ray Wallis, 38, of Little
> Rock , were returning to Des Arc after a frog catching trip. On an overcast
> Sunday night, Poole 's pickup truck headlights malfunctioned. The two men
> concluded that the headlight fuse on the older-model truck had burned out.
> As a replacement fuse was not available, Wallis noticed that the 22 calibre
> bullets from his pistol fit perfectly into the fuse box next to the
> steering- wheel column. Upon inserting the bullet the headlights again began
> to operate properly, and the two men
> proceeded on eastbound toward the White River Bridge After travelling
> approximately 20 miles, and just before crossing the river, the bullet
> apparently overheated, discharged, and struck Poole in the testicles. The
> vehicle swerved sharply right, exiting the pavement, and striking a tree.
> Poole suffered only minor cuts and abrasions from the accident but will
> require extensive surgery to repair the damage to his testicles, which will
> never operate again as intended. Wallis sustained a broken clavicle and was
> treated and released. "Thank God we weren't on that bridge when Thurston
> shot his n**s off, or we might both be dead," stated Wallis. "I've been a
> trooper for 10 years in this part of the world, but this is a first for me.
> I can't believe that those two would admit how this accident happened," said
> Snyder. Upon being notified of the wreck, Lavinia ( Poole 's wife), asked
> how many frogs the boys had caught and did anyone get them from the truck.
> Priorities, after all!!
> Though Poole and Wallis did not die as a result of their misadventure as
> normally required by Darwin Award Official Rules, it can be argued that
> Poole did, in fact, effectively remove himself from the gene pool.

Those are pretty much a collection of urban myths (but funny ones) that have been bouncing around the internet and email for years.

Here is the site for real Darwin Awards: http://www.darwinawards.com/

Truth is funnier than fiction.

I never knew that. My cousin just sent it to me. Pretty funny even if they are myths. Sometimes it's good to break the tension here.
