Another Darwin Award

Thu Jul 17, 2003 11:55 am

Today some 60 year old dude killed some people in his car in Santa Monica. Apparently that guy was having a heart attack or something, so it wasn't really his fault.

But I wanted to mention one of the stupidest things I've heard in a long time.

Some brain surgeon of a 60 year old lady in NYC, at my local subway station, had missed her train, and tried to board the train in between the cars as the trian was MOVING, leaving the station.

Needless to say the lady fell under the train, lost her legs immediately and was dragged a hundreds feet or so into a tunnel, where her lifeless bosdy was retrieved, shutting down service on the 7 train for about an hour and a half.

I feel bad for her family and everything. It's a shame and all, but that as REALLY stupid. At least she didn't kill anyone else.

Any other Darwin Awards? (I think it's only a darwin if the stupid action resulsts in death)
