    *****THIS MAY BE SUPER OFFENSIVE*****



    Has anyone ever read these books?

    If so, what is your Favorite?

    Mine is;

    A child Fell off a cliff and died because he was swinging on a Cross. That cross was there to remember a man that fell off that same spot and died Last year!

    Sorry but LMAO :)eek: ) :D :p :)
     
  2. my fave was the guy who ate only beans and cabbage, and lived in a tiny little one room apartment, and the methane level from all of his flatulence killed him in his sleep.
     
  3. I like the one where the guy lighted the cow fart, and the cow exploded and he was killed by a thigh bone I think.

    My two faves surpass those by a long shot. Just google them.

    JATO and Lawnchair Larry

    Too bad the JATO guy is fake, and Lawnchair Larry didn't die...

    Yeah, but that's not a Darwin. It's potentially Darwinian, but he didn't die in the act, so he doesn't qualify

    A lot of the Darwins are fake, like the JATO and some others.

    Makes for entertaining reading, though.

    It is better not to know if they are fake or not. Frankly, I don't really care if they are real, they are still the same either way. It is not like they are news stories or major events in history.

    I dunno. Humans are stupid enough anyway, I think it's better to go with the stranger-than-fiction truth. It's more entertainting to me to know there's some jackape that is really THAT stupid, and proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

    Why fake what's already real?

    I think it highlights an interesting change in evolution...

    So in 'pre-historic' human society you would have done alright with brute strength to impose your genes on the next generation - you would always have needed some muscle!

    But now it is pretty obvious that it is intelligence which gets you into the gene pool and stupidity that rules you out! ;)

    Which is why I often say that I am surprised how much dumb behaviour and laziness at school is celebrated - all those people are doing is ruling themselves out of the human race!! ;)

    Funny you mention school, because there's a backdoor into the gene pool - teenage pregnancy ;)

    Exactly. Allthough, it would be pretty fun to see someone actually strap a JATO unit to his car...
     
  14. Please elaborate?

    That could indeed be construed as political...

    I find the Darwin awards quite amusing - although I'd be much happier to know that they'd all been made up as slapstick humour. Many of the 'winners' may have been terminally stupid (well, actually that's the definition of a 'winner'), but a lot of them would have left decent people behind...

    I disagree. Have you seen Jerry Springer? I mean those idiots are having babies like rabbits. On the other hand. Of the 12 couples I personally know where one or both partners are PHDs, there is a total of 4 children. You do the math.
