    Didn't think we had a master thread of Darwin Award contestants.
    Obviously the tourist killed by a lion in South Africa qualifies but she already has her own thread.

    Here are the rules: it must have happened for real and mentioned in a legitimate news story. Pictures optional but post a link.
    No rascist entries, this is for fun.
    If it's a success we can sticky it.


    Here's my first submission:

    The man responsible for an explosion in a Cape Coral condo complex will not face charges.
    The State Attorney's Office tells us Justin McHenry was making fireworks in a coffee grinder -- which caused an explosion.

    McHenry was critically injured in the accident.

    By the rules of life, in order to win a Darwin one must remove themselves from the gene pool. Critical condition doesn't count. They must die.

    Adjusted rules...serious attempts do count for the sake of this thread.

    They should only get honorable mentions, then.

    Correct. Either by death, or made unable to have children, can one qualify.

    Yep. Looking at the female officer, it's more like a POV cam worn on a headset, but same concept. Otherwise that cop was 10ft tall. Did you notice he slid the steak knife away when passing the table? Guy pulled out a pellet gun made to look like a 92FS according to the article the video was attached to.

    Good quality video and the cop was justified IMO. I feel sorry for the officer.

    The female officer reacted pretty quickly, knocking aside the suspect's pistol like she did. It is amazing how quickly events can turn for the worse.
