You won't believe how stupid some people are!

The father of the theory of evolution, Charles Darwin, believed in natural selection, which is the slow process of species growing and developing by having the weak die off and the strong survive. For humans today, “weak” and “strong” can essentially be swapped for “dumb” and “smart.”

The Darwin Awards are given out to people who manage to find amazingly dumb ways to die, thereby (mercifully) removing themselves from the human gene-pool and improving the world for the rest of us in the long run. Let’s take a look at some idiots who sure to be strong candidates for Darwin Awards in the near future. If only Mr. Darwin were still around to see his theories play out…and to laugh along with the rest of us.
