The Darwin Awards commemorate those poor fools who improve the human gene pool by taking themselves out of it. Most of the items in this collection have been verified, a few have not and a few are also included that didn't result in anyone dying but do illustrate human stupidity.
The Darwin Awards started online but is now available in print, with Evolution in Action the first in the series. I know it is not kind to laugh at others misfortunes and tragedies, but some of the things people get up to are just ridiculous and you can't help laughing. This book is about death but nonetheless it is very funny. Very funny indeed.
