    #10 Darwin Awards for Funny AccidentsThe chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat cutting machine and, after a little hopping around, submitted a claim to his insurance company. The company, expecting negligence, sent out one of its men to have a look for himself. He tried the machine and lost a finger. The chef's claim was approved. #9 Darwin Awards for Funny AccidentsA man who shoveled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her~ #8 Darwin Awards for Funny Accidents

    After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting from Harare to Bulawayo had escaped. Not wanting to admit his incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone waiting there a free ride. He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn't discovered for 3days.

    #7 Darwin Awards for Funny Accidents

    An American teenager was in the hospital recovering from serious head wounds received from an oncoming train. When asked how he received the injuries, the lad told police that he was simply trying to see how close he could get his head to a moving train before he was hit.

    #6 The Darwin Awards for Funny AccidentsA man walked into a Circle-K in Louisiana, put a $20 bill on the counter, and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and fled, leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the drawer...$15.

    (Here's a conundrum. If someone points a gun at you and gives you money, is a crime committed?) #5 The Darwin Awards for Funny AccidentsSeems an Arkansas guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided that he'd just throw a cinder block through a liquor store window, grab some booze, and run. So, he lifted the cinder block and heaved it over his head at the window. The cinder block bounced back and hit the would-be thief on the head, knocking him unconscious. Seems the liquor store window was made of Plexiglas. The whole event was caught on videotape. #4 The Darwin Awards for Funny AccidentsAs a female shopper exited a New York convenience store, a man grabbed her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immediately, and the woman was able to give them a detailed description of the snatcher. Within minutes, the police apprehended the snatcher. They put him in the car and drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of the car and told to stand there for a positive ID. To which he replied, "Yes, officer, that's her. That's the lady I stole the purse from." #3 The Darwin Awards for Funny AccidentsThe Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan, at 5 a.m., flashed a gun and demanded cash. The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn't open the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion rings, the clerk said they weren't available for breakfast. The man, frustrated, walked away. #2 The Darwin Awards for Funny AccidentsA 5-STAR STUPIDITY AWARD WINNER, THE RUNNER-UP!

    When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor home near spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline and plugged his siphon hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges, saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had. #1 The Darwin Awards for Funny Accidents[​IMG]

    AND, NOW...
    When his 38-caliber revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach, California, would-be robber James Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder.

    He peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. This time it worked...

    Aw yes the world of stupidity. Heres another
    Man stole computer from jail -------------- KALAMAZOO, Mich. - A Michigan college student was sentenced to 180 days for what the judge described as "the dumbest crime I've heard today" -- stealing a computer from a jail. William Bradley, 25, a student at Western Michigan Univer-sity in Kalamazoo, was convicted of larceny after he took a computer that was delivered to the jail while he was serving a sentence for a separate case and concealed it behind some trash bins to be picked up later, the Kalamazoo Gazette reported Wednesday. Bradley's actions were recorded by Kalamazoo County Jail security cameras. Kalamazoo County Circuit Judge Gary Giguere Jr. said during the sentencing it was "the dumbest crime I've heard today." "It may be in the top half dozen in my career," he said. "You need to get a handle on this theft thing. Your life of crime is not working out." Bradley agreed with the judge. "I'm not the best criminal," he admitted.
