Just when you thought awards season had finally ended, another set of trophies is about to be handed out: the Darwin Awards. Named after Charles Darwin, the father of evolution, the Darwin Awards recognize those whose less-than-intelligent actions revealed them to be unfit to reproduce, forcing nature to take up the task of removing them from the gene pool. The world is a dangerous place, and many dumb people are waltzing around in it without a clue or a seatbelt.
Though undoubtedly all victims of tragedy, these people complicated their legacies by going in ways most other people could reasonably avoid. Thus, you walk away from them feeling that perhaps this was all part of natural selection. Apparently, common sense is not all that common, and you, dear reader, should be happy yours has kept you around for this latest round of Darwin Awards.
