The Darwin Awards - a pass to the League of outstanding idiots

March 10 2005

Award named after Charles Darwin to biology ratio is indirect. And the prize-her name in full is impossible - cash equivalent, it has not. Banknotes will never need most of its winners as they left this world. For that, actually, and thank the organizers of their premiums.

Darwin Award Committee annually awards outstanding idiots have made every effort to make their stupid genes could not be passed to offspring. And thereby improve the gene pool of humanity.

The main principle is the reward: a result of an accident nominees should lose the ability to reproduce. Will it be sterilization, or death - it does not matter. But the story must be truthful.

In addition, the idiocy and ignorance - these are two big differences. Children do not understand what they are doing. And so the winners are only adults. In addition, death must not be random, because of someone else's mistakes. Laureate should ditch myself personally, or allow themselves to ditch the only great stupidity. For example, such that differed Larry Walters of Long Beach, California campus.

Since childhood, he raved about flying. But because of poor vision in the Air Force took him only a mechanic. But at age 33, Larry decided to take revenge on fate.

He bought at a military warehouse fifty retired weather balloons and several tanks of helium. Gas 42 balls, tied them to the handles of your favorite chair, attached to it as a box of beer, pretzels, and a loaded shotgun, from which thought to shoot the balls to land. Chair was tied a rope to the bumper of his jeep. Larry sat down and cut the rope, looking forward to a smooth and comfortable flight over the possession of disbelieving neighbors. He wanted to hang in the air for an hour or two at a height of thirty meters.

But meteoshary were made in Europe, and the lift was given in kilograms.

And Larry, all calculations carried out in pounds ...

In seconds, he was carried to a height of 3 kilometers. With him sleteli glasses, and the courage to shoot the balls blindly at Larry was not enough. He froze to death and described the fear. It was something to fear: the wind was carrying it in an air corridor through which approach arriving in Los Angeles aircraft.

Its first commander, said the Boeing 767 "company" Pan American "and told the dispatcher the airport of a strange object hanging out on top. The airport announced an alarm and a helicopter were sent to clarify the situation. Approaching Larry, a pilot reported the psyche, flying in a chair and waving a rifle. Manager decided that the pilot slid the roof ...

Night was approaching, and an unhappy Larry started blowing in the breeze of the ocean. Helicopters could not approach him - flyer drifting air flow. But the output still be found. The helicopter hovered over Larry and covered his rescue network with ballast. Larry at that time was in a coma ...

He is still alive and relatively healthy. But as described in the clouds, Larry froze their male organs. Children he will not have, even if he is released from prison, where the hit for violating the rules of safety in the area of the airport.

This story took place two decades ago. Since none of the winners could not compete with Larry in popularity. But idiocy, like perfection, there is no limit. Each year, all new dullards go to storm records idiocy.
