This Month's Darwin Award Nomination....

Steven Zorn had put the pen gun to his head and clicked before, thinking it was jammed and would not work.

But on the third try, the tiny, silver pistol went off as the 22-year-old budding rap singer was drinking to celebrate an impending record deal. He died later at the hospital.

......


Why would anyone point anything with a bullet in at their head and pull the trigger???????

I'd disagree. Good to know that natural selection still works on occasion.

Here's another one Darwin Nomination. It's horrible that it ended in tragedy, but the entire city was scratching their heads wondering, "What was this kid thinking?".

You're right, the idiot was his wife, who apparently knowingly allowed him to be on an airliner while he was not taking his medication for a bipolar disorder. The idiot (wife) should have taken his ass to Walgreens, not MIA.
