The Darwin Awards: Evolution in Action

“Only two things are infinite-the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not so sure about the universe.” -Albert Einstein Named in honor of Charles Darwin, the father of evolution, The Darwin Awards vividly portrays the finest examples of evolution in action, and shows us just how uncommon common sense can be.

Answer by Persiphone_Hellecat
Here you go. You can read them all.


A friend of mine is on a very famous drive time radio show and they do a lot of funny news stories and goof on them. Recently there was one about a guy who went in to rob a convenience store with his finger as a gun. Only he forgot to put his hand under his jacket. So there he stood pointing his finger at a very startled convenience store employee. Finally, he grabbed a bag of Sun Chips and walked out. Duh.

Darwin Awards

Wendy Northcutt, author of the celebrated book series called “The Darwin Awards,” offers up her own brand of natural selection that salutes the improvement of the species by honoring those members who have accidentally removed themselves from it. Her lecture is slated for Thursday, April 19 at 8 pm in the Cooperage. The event is free to SSU students with ID or general admission. The UC Berkeley molecular biologist discusses the creative, inane, and altogether awe-inspiring accidents that have improved the human gene pool and the poor departed souls that made the spectacular mishaps happen. Such accidents as the drunk man who wanted a wild poisonous snake as a pet, the sober man who tried to rob a man that was selling a gun, and an elderly gentleman attempting to rid his lawn of gophers by electrifying the very ground he stood upon will be discussed. Also on topic will be the honorable mentions of the Darwin Awards – those who had a bout with natural selection but survived with their reproductive capability intact.
