If you're not familiar with the Darwin Awards, the folks over at DarwinAwards.com describe themselves best:
"We salute the improvement of the human genome by honoring those who accidentally remove themselves from it... ensuring that the next generation is one idiot smarter. Of necessity, this award is generally bestowed posthumously."
This year's proud winners include:
- A Brazilian man's attempt to dissasemble an RPG
- Two Brits who tried to make their own lightsabers out of fluorescent tubes and gasoline
- A Pastor who, despite his claims, couldn't walk on water. Or swim.
