The Darwin Awards are a honor that recognize individuals who have contributed to human evolution by self-selecting themselves out of the gene pool via death by their own unnecessarily foolish actions.

I bet if you think back over your life, There were many times that you were so close to being awarded this trophy yourself! Hell, I can think of a few times this week myself.

Make sure you read all of the following stories and realize that not everyone died, but damn they all had a chance to kill themselves! With your family and friends coming in town for the holidays, you might have a chance to get one of them in the awards for next year!
