    Checked out Darwinawards.com and found this little nugget:
    Gun Safety Training

    2000 Darwin Awards
    Confirmed True by Darwin

    (28 February 2000, Texas) A Houston man earned a succinct lesson in gun safety when he played Russian Roulette with a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol on Monday. 19-year-old Rashaad was visiting friends when he announced his intention to play the deadly game. He apparently did not realize that a semiautomatic pistol, unlike a revolver, automatically inserts a cartridge into the firing chamber when the gun is cocked. His chance of winning a round of Russian Roulette was zero, as he quickly discovered.

    What some people do to get attention borders on pure insanity and a good dose not so common sense.

    LMAO!

    I like the one with the russian police officers... they just got a new type of body armor, so one told the other to stab him in the vest with a knife, it went right through and killed him.

    Sure! That's what the darwin awards are for... (another member of ToA is a youth pastor in Portland, he laughs at them too- so it's definately ok)...

    Hence the name,

    "Darwin" Awards.

    I thought I was the only one who knew about these, glad to hear that I am not a sicko for being amused by some of the amazingly stupid things people can do.

    One of the 1999 Darwin Awards Honorable Mentions was a poor poor boy whose girlfriend decided to use peanut butter to spice up the sex, apparently the couple were not aware of the dog being in the room. Suffice it to say, the dog had some stitches on his belly and a love of peanut butter, while the guy had some stitches on his crotch and a fear of dogs from then on.

    Ouch! /infopop/emoticons\icon_wink.gif

    Peanut Butter!? Jesus! Yeah that's a real turn on. I'll never eat PB&Js again.

    Only problem with the Darwin Awards is they're full of mutated Urban Legends, like that peanut butter one. Despite the claims of veracity often made, quite a few of them are debunked each year by alt.folklore.urban.

    Don't have the time to look for the writeup on the peanut butter one, but look in the Beatiality section of www.snopes.com, it's in there somewhere.

    I heard one about an idiot who was trying to pound in a nail with a .45, shot himself in the face (No, his head did not go flying, you have been playing too much UT.)
