I will keep adding nominees and winners. Others please do the same. Just copy a reference to the relevant thread or post here, and link this thread to the thread containing the Darwin nominee or winner.

There are so, so many examples.

Police: South Carolina Robber Dies After Spray Painting Face to Conceal His Identity | Fox News
Man dies after accidentally drinking gas and lighting cigarette
Death by Planking

And, they are overwhelmingly male.

My 19 year old son and I don't think death is a necessary element of a Darwin Award win.

Then you do not understand the point of the Darwin awards. Plainly put you need to remove yourself from the gene pool, and since cloning will soon be a reality, that means you have to die to qualify.

I thought "winners" are people who ought to be removed from the gene pool.

4. He then spills the gasoline all over his shirt.

5. He does not change his soiled shirt.

6. He lights a cigarette, catches on fire, and dies. (Where was his friend?)

Death is absolutely necessary for the award.... It is about natural selection, where the unfit don't survive...
