Third Place
After stepping around a marked police patrol car parked at the front
door, a man walked into H&J Leather & Firearms intent on robbing the
store. The shop was full of customers and a uniformed officer was standing
at the counter. Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a hold-up!, and
fired a few wild shots from a target pistol. The officer and a clerk
promptly returned fire, and several customers also drew their guns and
fired. The robber was pronounced dead at the scene by Paramedics Crime
scene investigators located 47 expended cartridge cases in the shop. The subsequent
autopsy revealed 23 gunshot wounds.Ballistics identified
rounds from 7 different weapons. No one else was hurt.

2010 Darwin Awards

Saw this on my drive in this morning.

Road crew is filling potholes. They had scooped a bunch of filler into a hole and a dude was carrying a propane tank just like the ones we use with our gas grills and had a blowtorch attached to it and he was using the torch to melt the filler, I suppose. He must have gotten some tar/creosote on the tank, because as I'm sitting there waiting to be waved around he turns the blow torch on the propane tank to burn the stuff off. :-*

Less than a mile away the fire department was extinguishing a burning honda. I wonder if that was his car?

Seventh Place
A 49-year-old San Francisco stockbroker, who 'totally zoned when he ran,'
accidentally, jogged off a 100-foot high cliff on his daily run.



I can totally see this. Not surprising at all.
This is why I can't run on a treadmill. After about half an hour I zone out and step on the side and shoot out the back of the damned thing.

2009 Awards

My favorite

(12 April 2008, Florida) Traffic was moving slowly on southbound I-95. Shawn M. had recently left a Pompano Beach bar, and now he was stuck in traffic. As the saying goes, you don't buy beer--you just rent it, and Shawn couldn't wait another moment to relieve himself. "I need to take a leak," he told his friends.

Traffic was deadlocked, so the waterlogged man climbed out, put his hand on the divider, and jumped over the low concrete wall... only to fall 65 feet to his death. "He probably thought there was a road, but there wasn't," said a Fort Lauderdale police spokesman. The car was idling on an overpass above the railroad lines.

His mother shared her attempt thoughts. "Shawn didn't do a whole lot for a living. He got along on his charm, just like his father."

Though his death was tragic, Shawn's downfall proves the old adage: Look before you leak!
