Darwin Awards - still evil

This individual has lived long & reproduced much
I blogged about my hatred for the Darwin Awards ten years ago. The Darwin Awards are still around and still profiting from and exacerbating tragedy by issuing public declarations that individual human beings who are usually more the victims of bad luck than stupidity, are better off dead.

Here we see them laughing like ghouls over some woman who was apparently so poor that she attempted to trash-pick a mattress. Hilarity ensues. I removed the woman's name so as not to help the Darwin Awards' mission of pin-point cruelty.
(23 September 2016, Virginia) (name redacted), 20, was pinning a king-size mattress to top of a van with the weight of her body, intent on claiming the free curb-side find, when her luck ran out. Perhaps the young woman was testing a physics theory and betting that friction would keep the two fixed in place. Alas, both of them slipped off the moving vehicle and, unfortunately, one of them did not bounce back.
The young woman was nominated for the notorious Darwin Award when it became apparent that she was suffering from a terminal case of bed-head.

Oh their droll commentary. Could tragic death be more hysterical?

The Darwin Awards web site, which is rarely and inconsistently updated and looks like crap is worth $35,000 according to this site. Such is the strength of human cruelty.

But of course the election of a shit like Donald Trump destroyed any doubt about the depravity of Americans, if not humanity in general.
