Nothing like reading about Darwin Award winners first thing in the morning. Most of these are 'no-brainers', but we should always be thankful to the participants for the entertainment value of their stupidity.
Still, no matter how unfortunately pre-destined these 'winners' may be, there's always a small part of you hoping for that happy ending. Like in this one, for instance:
(13 January 2008, Florida) A 37-year-old man was killed trying to cross the Manasota Key drawbridge on his motorcycle. Wearing only swim trunks and sneakers, the man was seen racing at high speed towards the gap as the bridge began to open.
Bridge designers had anticipated such lunacy and invented the crossing guard. The closing gates swept him off his Suzuki and over the side of the bridge, into the water and out of the gene pool. By a twist of fate, the motorcycle continued up the ramp and made it across to the other side!
