    Post CLASSIC Darwin Awards

    In February, Santiago Alvarado, 24, was killed in Lompoc,Calif., as he
    fell face-first through the ceiling of a bicycle shop he was burglarizing.
    Death was caused when the large flashlight he had placed in his mouth (to keep his hands free) fractured the base of his skull as he hit the floor.

    According to police in Dahlonega, Ga., ROTC cadet Nick Berrena, 20, was stabbed to death in January by fellow cadet Jeffrey Hoffman, 23 who was trying to prove that a knife could not penetrate the flak vest Berrena was wearing.

    Sylvester Briddell, Jr., 26, was killed in February in Selbyville, Del.
    as he won a bet with friends who said he would not put a revolver loaded with four bullets into his mouth and pull the trigger.

    In February, according to police in Windsor, Ont., Daniel Kolta, 27, and Randy Taylor, 33, died in a head-on collision, thus earning a tie in the game of chicken they were playing with their snowmobiles.

    In October, a 49-year-old San Francisco stockbroker, who "totally zoned when he ran," according to his wife, accidentally jogged off a 200-foot-high cliff on his daily run.

    In September in Detroit, a 41-year-old man got stuck and drowned in two feet of water after squeezing headfirst through an 18-inch-wide sewer grate to retrieve his car keys.


    In September, a 7-year- old boy fell off a 100-foot-high bluff near
    Ozark, Ark., after he lost his grip swinging on a cross that marked the spot where another person had fallen to his death in 1990.

    In Guthrie, Okla., in October, Jason Heck tried to kill a millipede with
    a shot from his .22-caliber rifle, but the bullet ricocheted off a rock
    near the hole and hit pal Antonio Martinez in the head, fracturing his skull.

    In Elyria, Ohio, in October, Martyn Eskins, attempting to clean out
    cobwebs in his basement, declined to use a broom in favor of a propane torch and caused a fire that burned the first and second floors of his house.

    Paul Stiller, 47, was hospitalized in Andover Township, N. J., in
    September, and his wife Bonnie was also injured, by a quarter-stick of
    dynamite that blew up in their car. While driving around at 2a.m., the
    bored couple lit the dynamite and tried to toss it out the window to see what would happen, but they apparently failed to notice that the window was closed.

    It has to be seen as useful when what seem to be useless bottom feeders take themselves out of the genetic mix ..... idiocy knows no bounds.

    Pity with some BG's they don't find Darwin before their proposed victims.

    We watch teenagers on the lake do that with their Ski-Doos. No wrecks yet, but I still watch........

    And this one ............

    I wonder what "Zone" he was in? Did he "Come out of it" before he hit bottom?

    This one shows the real 'genius' roaming our streets...

    Paul Stiller, 47, was hospitalized in Andover Township, N. J., in
    September, and his wife Bonnie was also injured, by a quarter-stick of
    dynamite that blew up in their car. While driving around at 2a.m., the
    bored couple lit the dynamite and tried to toss it out the window to see what would happen, but they apparently failed to notice that the window was closed.

    This one makes me ask, Where the hell were his parents? I think the 7 year old paid for the parent's Darwin Award.
