Male Idiot Theory!

Or, “How Dumb Turns Deadly.”  As has been proven time and again, the Darwin Awards show that many “genius” ideas are truly idiotic . . . and tend to end very badly.  For those who are unfamiliar with these awards, they “salute the improvement of the human genome by honoring those who accidentally remove themselves from it . . .”

Well, someone has finally analyzed two decades’ worth of winners and have come up with the following significant fact:

  • 89% were perpetrated by males (282 out of 319)

They further separated the events into categories (death toll in parentheses)

  • Morbid miscalculations (60 idiots)
  • Vehicular violence (56 morons)
  • Explosions and fire (45 numbskulls)
  • Self-inflicted wounds (26 dummies)
  • Fatal falls (26 dolts)
  • Outdoor endings (25 boneheads)
  • Accidental electrocutions (23 dimwits)
  • Animal attacks (21 fools)
