Re: I disagree with your assessment
None of these are worthy of a Darwin award.... you seem to not understand the meaning of the award.
You need to either die, or at least loose your ability to pro-create through a act of self stupidity.
The first one is at best an honorable mention, due to the stupidity of the act, but your article gives no reference to the shotgun idiot getting castrated, just injured.
The second story sounds like it would have been really cool to see, and was caused surely by stupidity, but your article doesn't even mention that the bloke was injured, let alone killed or castrated.
Your third and final example appears to be the only case where anyone dies, and the person being stupid (blame either the mother or the kid) were not the ones killed. The one killed was a completely innocent 8 year old girl who happened to be a bystander.
An somewhat interesting area with several stupid people? Sure, but a AOONS site... don't see the evidence here.
You really should look more to Florida where there are face eaters, and Darwin award winners galore.
