The Darwin Awards: Countdown to Extinction - 25th Feb 2017

The Darwin Awards: Countdown to Extinction 'Only two things in the world are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former'

There is fantastic and valuable research being done every day by brilliant people to expand our knowledge of the universe, cure disease, and make everyday life more enjoyable. This book isn't about them.

This book is about the other, not so brilliant people. The winners of the Darwin awards. It seems since humans first developed the ability to question and experiment there have been people who will touch the element to see if it's hot, stick a fork in the toaster to see what happens, or go kite surfing in a hurricane. 

The Darwin Awards 'honour those who help natural selection by taking a swan dive into the shallow end of the gene pool'. Filled with amusing stories of experiments and inventions gone wrong, this is a great book to read if you're feeling down about not being exceptional - you may not have discovered the cure for the common cold but at least you haven't died from trying to turn a bar stool into a means of transport or playing Russian roulette with a semi-automatic weapon!
