Check out this video of these two Russian fishermen who were trying for a big haul, but almost wound up vaulting to No. 1 for the 2012 Darwin Awards...because they went fishing with a hand grenade! The Darwin Awards honor those who have accidentally taken themselves out of the human gene pool in the dumbest ways possible.

As you listen you'll hear direction from where this is being filmed, which makes me wonder if this is part of the Russian equivalent of "Hillbilly Hand-Fishin'". But the explosion is real enough! The fishermen appear okay...physically. Not sure they could do any more damage mentally.
