a reply to: 727SkyThere should be an award for the guy who held a book in front of him to stop a .50cal round fired by his girlfriend.

Most of these, though funny, do not qualify as a Darwin Award, which is specifically for those who take themselves out of the gene pool. Usually, that means you have to die. The exception that still counts is the guy who shot off his own testicles.

and this is why we should cut off all government handouts to people too stupid or lazy to provide for themselves,if they are too stupid and lazy to keep themselves alive then they lack the basic animal instinct that is necessary for survival, and if they don`t even have the necessary basic instincts to provide for their own survival then they certainly don`t have what it takes to be a productive member of a civilized society.why are we even keeping these animals alive? it`s not like they are an endangered species that needs to be kept from extinction. parasitic humans will never be an endangered species,although honest, hard working, civilized humans may very well become an endangered species.

Ah! Real world. You so funny.

No joke, better then TV. If you crammed the Simpsons, Family Guy, and South Park into one all encompassing show. It would still not hold a candle to the real world shenanigans that go one almost every day, somewhere here on planet earth by someone.

That first part about the guy peaking in the barrel of his guy while pulling the trigger to find out why it did not go off the first time. Now that is some Loony Toon's right there. I can just image porky pig coming out for the montage saying "Th-Th-Th- That's All Folks!"

Hum! An interesting case. As Darwin did not say, its a dog eat dog world out there. Those were some scrawny pit bull in the picture as well, that maybe they were just hungry and ticked off at the treatment, and they smelled blood.

I also wouldn't rule out a bigger animal such as a bear or mountain lion, attacking, killing, then leaving, and the dogs finishing whatever is left, dogs especially two scrawny pit bulls would not put up much of an effort of protection against that, and well animals will be animals, especially if there hungry.

I remember here, some years ago, a guy and his two dogs were out in the park riding his bike, ran into a bear, mauled him a little even with his bike in front of him for protection, picked him up upside down in the air like nothing, then let go, he took off with a chewed up and broken arm, shoulder bone poking through, slashed face, half his face is pretty much meaty, half a ear gone, lucky he had a helmet on because that to had tooth marks all over, when the bear let him go he took off, and found some other bikers who called 911. But the dogs bolted the second the bear appeared, and they only found them day latter, still running I think. Really if it wanted to, the bear, that dude would have been a goner. And if there were any hungry animals near by, including his own dogs...Well, changes are.

So ya! An interesting case, who knows. Sad! But interesting. Nature is scary, more then people know # does happen.

No mention of the lady being eaten by her pitbulls?

Eating her ribcage.





Remember Siegfried and Roy? The guys had tigers. Or people with bears, whatever...
Mammals have some sense of self. Just as there are people that snap and kill others, other mammals can have a bad day, too. Some are large enough to eat you.

Seriously, lighten up. It's a humor thread about the Darwin Awards. Let's keep it that way.

I feel like they should have included the story about the man who brought his gun to church and was showing it off to his friends. He pulled it out of his coat pocket saying, "I can tell it's not loaded by the way it feels", (after loading it a few minutes prior while showing it to another friend) then pulled the trigger and killed himself along with his wife forgetting it was loaded.

They were already 80, so many not qualify as Darwin award, but definite stupidity.
