Darwin Awards

http://www.darwinawards.com/

A local adolecent,age 20, recently plotted to fake his own death on tuesday,appearing as a suicide,but surviving,then stealing the life insurence check from his parents,as was stated in his private journal,which investigaters recently found under his bed. It followed that he would make a video of his supposed "death" and leave it somewhere in house. He had setup a very elaborate setup in the basement,consisting of a hand-sharpened chisel nailed to a board,a shotgun,and a thin translucent-fillament net.
Investigators stated that the young man must have been planning to shoot a slug out of the shotgun,and then fall back onto the "spike" he had made himself.

It would seem however,that he had underestimated his own weight.

Upon firing the shotgun,narrowly missing his head,he fell back. The net however,snapped,dropping him onto the spike.

He was found several hours later by his father. Investigators say the spike had ripped through the boy's heart,and he was probably dead within a minute.

It's sad, but I still can't help but laugh... and really, I'm not even that sad.

I'm not sad. Someone that stupid is better off.

They say the gene puddle is getting smaller and smaller.

Man I could give you sites that would gives you days of entertainment, but if I posted them, I would get banned. I'm already on thin ice here.
I have so much spare time at work, that all we do is look for F****d up sites on the internet.
Last month we found the lowest of the low.
I'll PM it to you.
Let me know what you think.

Did that person get banned for swearing?
Why would you ban someone from a site?
Who does the banning?

sincity,

Read some of the other posts in the general forum and that will give you the answers as to why that person was banned. Also, you can read the TOS to let you know what the rules are. I see you are new here and I'm sure you will find that this site is a wonderful source of information with "mostly" a great group of people. The Moderators are in charge of banning people and keeping this site running without any problems and they are doing a great job. Welcome to a great site......

All you need to do is read the site and the Darwin Awards are explained very simply:

Remove yourself from the gene pool.

So you either die or lose the ability to reproduce (eg. shoot your goolies off) before distributing genetic material.
