    this is a site dediated to posting examples of human stupidity that results in death, etc thereby removing their own inferior DNA from the human gene pool

    some examples
    "27 February 2012, North Carolina) "It was just a freak incident," said an investigator, that caused the death of 43-year-old Gary Allen Banning. Gary was at a friend's apartment when he spotted a salsa jar containing a mystery fluid. Thinking that it was an alcoholic beverage, he helped himself to a sizeable swig of gasoline! Naturally enough, he immediately spit out the offending liquid onto his clothes. Then, to recover from the shock, Gary lit a cigarette.
    Whoosh! Gas+Flame=Combustion.
    Firefighters responded to calls reporting a fire in the apartment, and found a badly burned man sitting on a charred carpet. The following morning, Gasoline Gary died at the UNC Burn Center in Chapel Hill."

    another example
    "Investigative journalism reaches a new "low" when a reporter freezes to death while getting an inside look at the lives of those who sleep rough...
    (31 March 2013, Newcastle, England) The UK homeless population's numbers are difficult to gauge; the website Crisis.co.uk sets a low estimate at 2,300 homeless people per night.
    Intending to advance his career, investigative journalist Lee Halpin, 26, decided to acquire background in the problem by pretending to be homeless. He borrowed a sleeping bag and, waving aside the concerns of friends and family, he set off into the streets alone. "I will sleep rough, scrounge for my food, interact with as many homeless people as possible, and immerse myself in that lifestyle as deeply as I can," said the journalist--three days before freezing to death in a boarded up hostel.
    Hypothermia is suspected and autopsy results are pending; meanwhile, two homeless men have been arrested on possibly-related drug charges. "


    the site has numerous other examples of brilliance

    Yeah, but that stupidity had to come from somewhere. It didn't just happen by chance.

    My favorites were the guy in Brazil who lit a match to see inside the tank on his gasoline transport truck and the scuba diver who was found dead in a tree (he got scooped up by a smoke jumper who then deposited him into a burning forest). He wasn't stupid, just very unlucky.

    Not too much humorus about death. Old, it was just a short time ago you and other liberals were lamenting Travon's death. I guess times have changed.

    I guess everything can be made partisan.

    Now THAT's evolution.

    Haven't chuckled at this thread, yet. I do find those stupidest criminal things pretty funny. I suppose that must have something to do with some deep seeded political philosophy of mine? ;)
