Barn Demolition

2007 Darwin Award Nominee
Unconfirmed by Darwin

(14 January 2007, Augusta, West Virginia) Raising a new barn is an endeavor that brings a community together in a working celebration. Demolishing a barn, on the other hand, is a more solitary pursuit. A trio of friends set out to dismantle a dilapidated structure one bracing winter afternoon. Speaking of bracing...

There was wood to be cut, so it seemed sensible for one industrious friend to fire up his chainsaw. It was less sensible for him to set about severing crucial support posts. Carrying the weight of a full barn roof, those wooden beams were all that stood between the demolition workers and structural collapse.

With minimal forethought, this ill-fated lumberjack could have anticipated his soon-to-be deadly problem. It was all fun and games until the roof succumbed to the pull of gravity. As a consolation prize, the deceased was indeed successful at demolishing the barn.

Man, I love the Darwin Awards. That is funny, but not that surprising though. I have met people before that might be that stupid. :-?

I haven't seen the Darwin awards email in several years. \Maybe they're waiting for my end. 8-o
