The Darwin Awards 5 commemorates those who improve our gene pool by removing themselves from it, showing us just how uncommon common sense can be! Meet the absentminded terrorist who opens a mail bomb returned to him for insufficient postage. Marvel at the thief who steals electrical wires before shutting off the current.

These tales of trial and awe-inspiring error illustrate the ongoing saga of survival of the fittest in all its selective glory!
