Are You Ready For A Good Laugh?

This actually appeared last Friday on ESPN's Not Top Ten Plays. After seeing it again yesterday on the local news, I thought why should this thread be limited to the "crooks are stupid file."

At a track meet in China in the 100 meter hurdles, the runner in Lane 7 ( maybe it was 8) missed the first two hurdles, then he decided he wasn't a hurdler after all and began running through the hurdles. That's right, through them and began smashing the next five or six and then went to the lane to his immdiate left and tripped over another hurdle. He then got up and proceeded to smash the remaining hurdles before crossing the finish line in his own lane. Maybe someone can dig up the video.

Is this it?

I figured this would take on a life of its own. Our Chinese hurdler has become a sensation on the internet. ESPN Sports Nation evened named it the worst play for 2010 beating out a collision in the end zone between two University of Houston football players who were trying to intercept a pass that had caromed off the helmet of a UTEP (Universtiy of Texas El Paso) player. I wonder if we can get the moderators in on this.

Confirmed True by Darwin

"(1 January 2010, South Africa) Pop quiz, class. Do you or don't you go swimming in the crocodile-infested Limpopo? Do, or don't, leave your friends on the banks of the great grey-green Olifants River (main tributary of the Limpopo) and swim in its limpid waters not once, not twice, but three times the day you are finally devoured by that old crocodile? Let's just say it was a short New Year for Mariska B., 27, a waitress and former swimmer.

According to a long-time resident of Phalaborwa, locals know, "You don't even put a toe in the river. It's teeming with crocodiles and hippos." This local, on her third refreshing dip of the day, didn't have time to scream or struggle. Friends saw just a ripple on the water where seconds before she had been swimming.

Did I mention that swimming was strictly prohibited?"

"Shakes Head" :blink:

Top this for Dumbness.

Darwin Award Winner for 1996.

"Some men will got to extraordinary lengths to prove how macho they are. Frenchman Pierre Pumpille recently shunted a stationary car two feet by headbutting it. "Women thought I was a god," he explained from his hospital bed.

Deity or not, however, Pumpille is a veritable girl's blouse compared to Polish farmer Krystof Azninski, who staked a strong claim to being Europe's most macho man by cutting off his own head in 1995. Azninski, 30, had been drinking with friends when it was suggested they strip naked and play some "men's games". Initially they hit each other over the head with frozen turnips, but then one man upped the ante by seizing a chainsaw and cutting off the end of his foot. Not to be outdone, Azninski grabbed the saw and, shouting "Watch this then," he swung at his own head and chopped it off.

"It's funny," said one companion, "when he was young he put on his sister's underwear. But he died like a man."

Gun Safety Training

2000 Darwin Award Runner-Up

Confirmed True by Darwin

(28 February 2000, Texas) A Houston man earned a succinct lesson in gun safety when he played Russian roulette with a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol. Rashaad, nineteen, was visiting friends when he announced his intention to play the deadly game. He apparently did not realize that a semiautomatic pistol, unlike a revolver, automatically inserts a cartridge into the firing chamber when the gun is cocked. His chance of winning a round of Russian roulette was zero, as he quickly discovered.

2010 Darwin Award Nominee

Confirmed True by Darwin

"(25 August 2010, Daejon, South Korea) VIDEO NEWS! A handicapped man, annoyed that an elevator closed and departed without him, thinks it over before ramming his wheelchair into the doors not once, not twice, but three times in all--only to plunge down the now-empty elevator shaft to his death. Simultaneous success and failure combine to earn the 40-year-old "Angry Wheelchair Man" lasting immortality as a Darwin Award winner."

From Barstool Sports.

"A cockfighting rooster appears to have taken deadly revenge on its trainer for forcing it back into the ring too soon. The bird is said to have attacked owner Singrai Soren and slit his throat with razor blades he had attached to its legs. One of the dead man’s friends, known only as Dasai, said: ‘The rooster tried to get away from the ring several times, but Soren pushed it into the ring repeatedly. ‘This upset it and it attacked Soren.’ Roosters are usually given a break of at least an hour before taking on another opponent, he explained. ‘But Soren wanted the rooster to go to the ring within a few minutes of its first fight and that is when it got upset.’ Officers want to find the bird to strip it of the razor blades it killed with on Thursday. But they believe their chances are slim. They think the rooster – which has won four fights – is being kept by a rival trainer keen to put it back in the ring."

Karma :)

A car salesman in Oak Lawn, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, was fired from a car dealership for wearing a Green Packers tie to work. When offered five chances to remove the tie, the salesman refused saying he was honoring his late grandmother, a Packers fan. According to his immediate supervisor, the dealership has done promotions involving the Chicago Bears and did want to risk alienating team fans. It seems the biggest mistake was wearing the tie the day after the Bears lost to Green Bay 21-14 to advance to the Super Bowl. So we also have sore losers.

But there is a happy ending. Our salesman was hired by another dealership.

There's no word where this took place, but it was May of 2009. A 70 year old woman is on trial for killing a peacock because it kept her awake at night. The formal charge is cruelity to animals. When she decided it was timne to deal with the flock, she tried chasing them with a baseball bat to no avail. One of them stay behind and made the fatal mistake of deficating in the barbecue. I guess she decided that'll show them.

I figured this would make ESPN's Not Top Ten, it came in at No. 4. A PBA bowler needed to get two pins in the tenth frame for an even 100. He left the 4-6-7-10 split, the double pinochle. I didn't see the match, but it's certain he a number of open frames (failure to get at least a spare). He left at least another 4-6-10. What makes this worse is that his opponent left the ten pin on his 12th and final ball to finish with a 299.
