Astazi un coleg de-al meu mi-a povestit despre minunatele premii denumite Darwin Awards. Si acum ihi multumesc in gind „Danke Uwe, Du habs meinen Tag gerettet”. Despre ce este vorba. Premiile Darwin sint acordate acelor oameni care fac un serviciu umanitatii eliminidu-se singuri din pool-ul de gene (definitie wikipedia). Deci oameni care prin propria stupiditate au facut un serviciu umanitatii si au disparut de pe fata pamintului datorita propriei prostii dar nu s-au sinucis. Sa vedem citeva exemple de pe wikipedia.

June 2007, Illinois | Two Valparaiso men tested their reflexes by playing „chicken” with a train. Which man could stay on the rail the longest in the path of an oncoming train? At the stroke of midnight, the contest was decided. The winner, aptly named Patrick Stiff, lost his life. The train continued on, as the conductor was unaware that it had hit anyone

(20 June 2007, South Carolina) A passing cabbie found a 21 year-old couple Znaked and injured in the road an hour before sunrise. The two people died at the nearest hospital without regaining consciousness. Authorities were at a loss to explain what had happened. There were no witnesses, no trace of clothing, and no wrecked cars or motorcycles.
Investigators eventually found a clue high on the roof of a nearby building: two sets of neatly folded clothes. Safe sex takes on a whole new meaning when you are perched on the edge of a pyramid-shaped metal roof. „It appears as if [they] accidentally fell off the roof,” Sgt. Florence McCants said.
This is a true Darwin Award trifecta: TWO people die, WHILE in the act of procreation, due to an ASTONISHINGLY poor decision. Bottom line: If you put yourself in a precarious „position” at the edge of a pointy roof, you may well find yourself coming and going at the same time.
Ironically, one of the deceased was named „Tumbleston.”
Are de-a face cu securitatea? Da. Never underestimate the „Human Factor”.
