Darwin Awards honor those who improve our gene pool by eliminating themselves from it in really stupid ways. These tales of natural selection were one of the first chain letters on the Internet. Original Darwins were mostly urban legends, like the man who strapped a JATO Rocket on his Chevy, leaving only skid marks and a burnt crater behind. I codified the five rules of death, self-selection, truth, maturity, and excellence in 1994, and wrote hundreds of true Darwinian stories. The lawyer who crashed through a skyscraper window while demonstrating its safety. The short-lived drinking game Stomp the Mine. The terrorist who forgot the time and blew up with his bomb. The Darwin Awards are about humor, safety, and evolution. Everyone who laughs at these stories understands that these fools’ deadly traits will not be passed along to any more kids.
