01/26/2005: What’s Wrong With This Picture…or Welcome to The Darwin Awards 2004 Winner
For those of you unfamiliar with The Darwin Awards, it’s a group dedicated to finding the best stories during the year of those most fantastical ways reeeeally stupid people have (generously…unintentionally) removed themselves from the gene pool of the planet.
The 2004 Winner is…
We have a new Darwin winner, with the recent demise of a man at the hands of his lava lamp. "Why on Earth he heated a lava lamp on the stove, we don't know," said baffled police.
No drug or alcohol evidence was found; Philip Quinn, 24, in his right mind, placed a lava lamp on his kitchen burner and turned up the flame. In due course, he rediscovered this favorite explosive generator of deadly shrapnel. He was found dead in his Kent trailer home, a shard of glass through his heart.
Save those stories...and make your own entry...who knows...yours could be the 2005 Winner this year.
