Ladies & Gentlemen—your 2006 Darwin Award winners.

(via ananova, and, of course, The Darwin Awards)
1st place: Two Florida 21-year-olds climbed into a big balloon to get a helium high and suffocated.
2nd place: A 26-year-old man was electrocuted while flying a copper wire-bound kite in a thunderstorm. Wait for it...he was an electrician.
3rd place: A Brazilian man tried to dismantle a rocket-propelled grenade by driving over it repeatedly with his car and then hitting it with a sledgehammer. The subsequent explosion killed him and destroyed six cars and his workplace.
(btw, this is my 520th post. Fuck You, Douchebags!)

1. LIVE GREASY.

Too bad they picked the winners before all the copycat Saddam-hanging suicides happened.

How about anyone who enlisted in the Army or Marines since 2005 and died in Iraq?

Notoriously small brain pans in Brazil. But not quite as small as the brain pan in anonymous's sick skull.

That's gotta be one big fucking baloon to crawl into. Their last moments must have been intriguing, and are worthy of some 10 minute film school kid's short film project.

Gillette's new 5 blade razor is even better than advertized, speaking of advertisements. Best shave of my life. Not one cut.

I would have gone with douchecock #3. Everyone knows you have to sledgehammer first.

David, I've stuck with the Mach 3. And until "they" invent a laser shaver, I ain't budgin'.
