Darwin Awards 2007
The winners of the Darwin Awards 2007 have been announced. These posthumous awards recognize those selfless individuals who improve the species by accidentally and permanently removing themselves from the gene pool. Not so much natural selection as unnatural deselection. And the winner is ... an alcoholic Texan with a sore throat who managed to give himself a fatal dose of alcohol poisoning by means of an enema! Yes, that's a lulu, but the five runners-up were hard on his heels for prize-winning stupidity. Click the title link to read more. You can also nominate your favourite fatal loopiness of 2008.
