The Darwin Awards Evolution in Action characters ✓ 9 ç ❴BOOKS❵ ✫ The Darwin Awards Evolution in Action Author Wendy Northcutt – 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 DarwAmples of evolution in action and shows us just how uncommon common sense can be Marvel at the thief who steals electrical wires without shutting off the current Gape at the lawnchair jockey who floats to a height of feet suspended by helium balloons Learn from the man who peers into a gasoline can using. The Darwin Awards Evolution in Action is by far one of the funniest books I have ever read The book has no real linear story but it is extremely funny and says a lot about the world we live in and the people who are in it The book can generally be called tongue and cheek but I think that the thought behind the concept deserves explanation Named after Charles Darwin the father of evolution and the theory of natural selection this book uses his ideas to critiue the stupidity of humanity The basic idea behind The Darwin Awards Evolution in Action is that for each person who meets their death in a stupid and hilarious way an award is given to them as a thank you for removing themselves from the gene pool By rewarding people for being “removed” by natural selection the book right from the beginning takes on a dark type of humor that I have always loved The book started as an online conversation using the network “Usenet” created in the 80’s by Duke Grad students From here stories were collected using the Internet community and news reports to gather a history of human mistakes Instead of getting old or predictable the book made me laugh over and over and over by continually presenting and unbelievable acts of ignorance and hilarity Some examples of the type of stories in the book are a man playing Russian roulette with an automatic pistol which reloads on its own and a man juggling hand grenades live ones The book is fair though and has reuirements for the type of submissions they accept The nominee must be dead or sterile so that they are removed from the gene pool they must be “uniuely foolish” victims of their own stupidity and above 18 The Darwin awards is a great book because it give me a sense of the people who I share the world with and answers a lot of the what ifs raised in my head when my mother told me to be cautious It is a good collection of things not to do and a better collection of things that will make you laugh till it hurts

Only two Awards Evolution PDF #199 things are infinite the universe and human stupidity and I'm The Darwin eBook #8608 not so sure about the universe Albert Einstein Named in honor of Charles Darwin Awards Evolution ePUB #180 Darwin the father of evolution The Darwin Awards vividly portrays the finest ex. This book despite being about death and mutilation is actually displaying a kind of up beat hopefulness It says Fear not humans for the stupid among you are killing themselves and therefore the smarter among you will breed and thus humanity gets smarter Only that's pretty much a lie One needs only watch the first 5 minutes of Idiocracy to see why Here we have Trevor and Carol Is 138 and 141 respectively vs Clevon I 84 Carol and Trevor are waiting for the right time in their marriage in their careers in the economy etc to bring a child into this world By contrast Clevon's only waiting for a willing sperm recipient to lift her skirt And his kids who have fallen down as close as possible to their father tree have the same hum everything gene and their kids and so on Like bunnies If you know what I'm sayin' So yeah This book MEANS to make you feel all reassured that evolution has a betterment plan for us meaning humanity but human stupidity and ignorance is not a force to be trifled with It may win out just from sheer weight of numbers There were some humorous accounts in this book though most of them just left me baffled at how people can possibly be SO stupid If you're working on the roof of your home and you want to tether yourself to something so that you do not fall to the ground and injure yourself admirable forethought then I fail to see the logic in attaching the other end of the rope to the bumper of a car that is on the ground The bumper of a car That can be driven With you attachedI mean I know that this is The Darwin Awards and it's a celebration of momentous and usually fatal stupidity but wow I did rather appreciate some of the intros to the different sections There was some interesting stuff in there as well as little tidbits strewn throughout the text regarding the debated veracity of some of the claims or FYIs about the key facets of a claim etc Pretty nice of them to include that stuff Though toward the end of the book I did start seeing several typos and errors in the text I'm going to assume that working on this book actually reduced Ms Northcutt's I points It's the only thing that explains it Anyway this was an OK read but I didn't think that any of the stories were as humorous as some of the ones on the site I got this book used for super cheap so I don't feel like I wasted my money but if you're interested I'd suggest reading the site instead Or hell if Idiocracy is right just read the news
