Out of the Gene Pool

I never enjoy hearing of the death of someone, it's always sad no matter what the age.  But some people need to be removed from the gene pool to protect the species.  Two young men did exactly that this weekend.
One young man in Maine decided to launch a reusable mortar type firework from the top of his head. He was killed instantly.  Did I say he'd been drinking?  Well of course he had.
The other young man was down in Texas with his girlfriend and saw the sign saying No Swimming, Alligators.  He said something very rude to the alligator and jumped in.  The alligator, all 11 feet of him, killed the young man.  Did I say he'd been drinking?  Again, well of course he had.
Two tragic stories, sad for their families, but all in all better for the species.

  1. There was an item on our local news tonight about young people sending sexually explicit images of themselves on their phones to friends. How can people be so stupid?

  2. I read an article stating that the mother of the fireworks on head person appealed to Maine gov't for stricter laws regarding the sale and use of fireworks. Duh! The official was quoted as mumbling something to the effect of laws couldn't 'fix stupidity.' Unfortunately, consumption of [excess] alcohol seems to enhance stupidity!

  5. I am continually amazed at the stupidity of people...no I should say the stupidity caused by drinking and thinking are above consequence.

    I feel so sad for the families who probably think their kids are the smartest around.

  6. So sad but so stupid.
    The only good that came out of this is they only killed themselves and not drag others with them.

    cheers, parsnip

  7. People do sometimes leave their brains behind when they step into the world don't they? Alchohol doesn't help either! Yesterday four youths stepped in front of our car and one of them turned his back to us and just stood there - luckily Paul slammed the brakes on and stopped inches from him pipping loudly, as did the car behind. I don't know if they were trying to cause an accident by having the car behind run into us or to hope if they got knocked by our car they could claim for damages - either way a brainlness thing to do - if they try it again one of them could lose their life:)
