Darwin Awards

Recommended Posts

An American, Larry Genius*, died of drinking chloroquine phosphate (fish tank cleaner) last month after confusing it for hydroxychloroquine - a drug previously touted by Trump as a potential cure to treat Covid-19. His wife, Wanda, said "I was in the pantry and I saw it sitting on the back shelf and I said 'hey isn't that stuff they were talking about on tv'."

 

*actually his name was Gary Lenius, but my version sounds more appropriate

Darwin Award for 2020 is surely done and dusted already.

 

Woman in North Carolina dies after going to pet an alligator. It ended exactly as you think it might have done.

 

Wildlife expert guy with the best "fucking duh" response too:

 

Quote

"There was nothing unusual here as it relates to the alligator. It has a history of doing what alligators do," he added. "Alligators are opportunistic feeders that wait for prey to get close enough to the water or enter into its environment (the water) before attempting to take it. Alligators do not travel across land looking for its prey to chase."

Woman: But I thought that gator was just like a cat

Expert guy: Well, I still wouldn’t recommend petting it

Woman: Eh. (Reaches out to pet the gator). Oh, just my cat biting me again. Nothing unusual. *arm gets bitten off*. Oh...

Texas man dies at COVID-19 party, trying to prove coronavirus is a hoax.

 

'This is a party held by somebody diagnosed by the COVID virus and the thought is to see if the virus is real and to see if anyone gets infected,' said Methodist Healthcare Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jane Appleby

So currently we have tiers one through four, apparently it is fine to travel from tier 4 to tier 3 to buy christmas presents because the shops are closed. This is why the infection rates are rising and people complain at the government for spoiling Christmas. This has f**k all to do with Christmas and everything to do with controlling the virus, protecting the NHS and the vulnerable population. The government have tried to give guidance to sensible advice to sensible people. There are always people who do not take the spirit of the rules but always try to bend or break them. Unfortunately there are too may idiots, too many people in the category "It does not apply to or affect me". Apparently the new variant of the virus hits the younger sections of the population harder, maybe this could make a difference. 

 

May be not the correct thread but self destruction is an appropriate heading for these people.
