If you need a break from the insanity in the world, let me offer you . . . . more insanity. I've done a little looking and these three are the
leading candidates for this year's Darwin Award. If you have any other contestants, please enter them.
I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry, perhaps that's part of the appeal. Here are my choices so far, in reverse order:
David Strohm, Jr. loved to photograph sunsets -- and that love apparently led to his death.
The 28-year-old from Tustin, Calif., was found dead in that tree Sunday morning, apparently electrocuted when he touched a power cable running through
the tree, Los Alamitos Patch reported.
— August 4, 2014 Muscovite-iPad
A 17-year-old girl from Moscow died of electric shock in a bathtub when she dropped her iPad connected to the power outlet.
And now for the one leading by a mile.
In the failed rocket disarming attempt on a dud Israeli shell, we reported that Hazem Abu Murad, the head of the Hamas bomb disposal unit and
4 of its members, along with an Italian AP journalist Simone Camilli were killed by the blast and 6 others were seriously wounded.
The bomb squad’s professionalism is questionable, certainly their technique was unique.
“An anxious crowd watched on Thursday as Hazem Abu Murad and his team stood over a unexploded one-tonne Israeli bomb in a field of tomato and potato
“It’s already been disabled! Don’t worry – it won’t explode!” he shouted, jumping up and down on the bomb.”
Makes you wonder if he jumped up and down on this bomb too.
I wonder if Hamas will count those as civilian deaths caused by the Israelis?
