Darwin Awards
What Are The Awards? Naturalist Charles Darwin
postulated that the effects of natural selection
applied over time would tend to evolve
individuals more able than their predecessors.
This is called "Survival of the Fittest." We
honor Charles Darwin's hypothesis by annually
bestowing Darwin Awards upon individuals who have
given their all in an effort to improve our gene
pool. We applaud those who have made the ultimate
sacrifice by the most extraordinarily stupid
means.

Eric A. Barcia, a 22-year-old Reston Virginia
resident, was found dead yesterday after he used
bungee cords to jump off a 70-foot railroad
trestle, police said. The fast food worker taped
a number of bungee cords together and strapped
one end around his foot. Barcia had the foresight
to anchor the other end to the trestle at Lake
Accotink Park, and he even remembered to measure
the length of the bungee cords to make sure that
they were a few feet short of the 70 foot drop.
He proceeded to fall headfirst from the trestle,
and hit the pavement 70 feet below several
seconds later. Fairfax County police said "The
stretched length of the cord that he had
assembled was greater than the distance between
the trestle and the ground." Washington Post -

The life of Reiva Nix, a 67-year-old grandmother
living in Egdewood, TX, was claimed in a tragic
accident on March 31. She was cleaning her tennis
shoes with gasoline when a nearby candle ignited
the shoes which Reiva was still wearing. Alone at
the time of the accident, she ran next door for
help, and her neighbor extinguished the fire with
a water hose. She died from burn wounds at 2AM at
the Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Investigators
noted that her flammable 65 polyester clothing
contributed to the blaze. Chief Corbett said
several people have told him they clean their
shoes with gasoline. He cautioned others to be
careful when using gasoline in any way. Van

James Burns, 34, of Alamo, Michigan, was killed
in March as he was trying to repair what police
described as a "farm-type truck." Burns got a
friend to drive the truck on a highway while
Burns hung underneath so that he could ascertain
the source of a troubling noise. Burns' clothes
caught on something, however, and the other man
found Burns "wrapped in the drive shaft."
Kalamazoo Gazette, April 1, 1995

10-year-old son to back the family car down the
driveway stumbled while directing the boy and was
fatally run down when he stepped on the gas pedal
instead of the brake. At about 530PM the woman's
son and a friend wanted to play basketball in the
driveway, but the car was in the way. The mother
stood behind the car helping guide the maneuver.
She stumbled after walking backwards into a bush.
The 28-year-old accident victim died at the scene
Friday. Her name was withheld by authorities. The
boy was physically unhurt. Athens Banner Herald
