ANOTHER DARWIN AWARD - THIS TIME IN MAINE






Over the Fourth of July holiday someone who outpaced his cognitive ability removed himself from the gene pool.  

In a moment of absolute showmanship the young man strapped a fireworks mortar tube to his head and lit it off – he died instantly. 

It probably is not appropriate to sight that he went out in a bang.   

My gut reaction is- that there but for the grace of dumb luck – at some point I didn’t make the cut.

  4. Ol' Buzzard, You are right. Most of us at one point or another in our lives would have qualified for a Darwin Award if it were not for angels or dumb luck; take your pick.

COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
