Darwin's Theory At Work

Have you ever heard the song Flagpole Sitta by Harvey Danger?, you can see the music video here, but why I mention the song is how the following line from it really sums up this post!

"Been around the world and found that only stupid people are breeding"

Well in the case of poor Marko, a 55 year old Croatian man, Harvey Danger was "balls on accurate," to borrow a line from My Cousin Vinny.

You have to be pretty stupid to believe that a Hand Grenade would be at all helpful in cleaning a chimney with the possibility of ever using it again, never mind finishing the job alive....Alas, Marko did try the largely unknown chimney cleaning grenade trick and now he's dead. He was as many who die such ridiculous deaths, given a Darwin Award !! If you haven't heard of this award you must check out their site. The Darwin Awards commemorate those who improve our gene pool by removing themselves from it and of course were named in honor of Charles Darwin, the father of evolution.

The fact that Marko lived to be 55 means he probably did reproduce. A sad state of affairs for mankind...Who knows his child might move to the US, get elected President, start looking for WMD's , start a war and oh....sorry this is not a political blog.....

I want to thank Choo Choo over at Stop Looking at Me for reminding me about all the stupid people out there (-:

If you haven't heard the song go back to the beginning of this post and go listen to it.

My all-time favorite concerns the guy who tied weather balloons to his lawn-chair, took his shotgun and started his ascent--thinking he could just shoot as many balloons as needed to bring him back to terra firma. Unfortunately he dropped his gun on the way up. A startled airline pilot called the local tower to report this sighting at about 10,000 feet.
