The Darwin Awards series is the alpha chimp of humorous human mishaps. Despite being an international bestseller and inspiring the movie The Darwin Awards, these hilarious, cautionary chronicles have failed to stop another generation of Darwin Award winners from steering motorcycles with their feet, heating lava lamps on stoves, using liquid soap as brake fluid, and drowning themselves in the kitchen sink.
Filled with more than 100 new tales of evolution in action, plus science essays and a parody research paper supporting Intelligent Design, The Darwin Awards 4 shows that when it comes to common sense, natural selection still has a long, long way to go.
"Delightfully funny, The Darwin Awards, taken together, constitute a delicious sermon in support of common sense."—The Baltimore Sun

These books are awesome
Informative, full of life¿s little lessons for all of us, like why you shouldn¿t munch on glass. Entertaining, humorous, even hilarious at times. Not that death is funny. Just that realizing that sometimes common sense takes a flying leap out the penthouse window... with the Darwin Award winner himself close behind. But I also appreciated the format of the book. It can be taken in little doses, like when waiting in the emergency room for your non-life-threatening treatment, or swallowed all at once. A great gift for the person lacking common sense, or those who love the bizarre. I guess both describe me!
the sample only gives you 10 pages and there all of the contents. lame
