Trying To Earn Himself A Darwin Award

Thu Jun 07, 2007 1:03 am

Looks like someone is trying to earn himself a Darwin award. If you are going to do something like that, at least wear a helmet. Anyone else have any pics of people doing stupid things?

I might be wrong, but isn't there a cable coming out of the gun handle? Is it a gun for a console game?

Isn't the first rule of gun safety that you always treat the gun as if it were loaded no matter what? That picture is horrifying. I hope your right about it being a video game device.

He is hardly trying to earn a Darwin Award, he is flying a replica of one of the most famous planes from the beginning of last century. Built by a pioneering aviator of the time, Alberto Santos Dumont.

The pic of the baby with the gun only goes to show that some parents should sit a licence before being able to Procreate.

I noticed one of the photos in the link showed a crashed airplane. Just proves my point that the guy in the photo should have a helmet on.
