Does everyone know about the Darwin Awards? (These are the awards given to people who most improve the human race... by departing early...)

The most commonly cited one is the story of the guy who mounted a rocket on his Chevy Impala, and flew it into a canyon wall... well, as with most good stories, it's based on an actual event. [ Reserve an hour or more, and bring diapers. ]

Assuming that explanation itself is not also completely made up.

Natural selection among humans is a good, good thing. I wish some of the idiots who live in my neighborhood would eliminate themselves from the gene pool. . .
