The 2008 Darwin Awards are out...

... honoring the least evolved among us. This year's winner:

When his 38-caliber revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up, our would-be robber did something that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. It worked.

A few runners-up:

A teenager, in the hospital recovering from serious head wounds received from an oncoming train, was asked how he got the injuries. He said he was simply trying to see how close he could get his head to a moving train. Now that's close!

A purse snatcher grabbed the handbag of a lady as she left a convenience store. Given a detailed description of the theif, the police quickly apprehended him. Then they took him back to the store and asked him to face his victim for a positive ID... to which he replied "Yes, officer. That's her. That's the lady I stole the purse from." It doesn't get more positive than that.

Now if these incidences don't help prove the study in the post just below, then I miss my guess.
