The Darwin Award: the most ridiculous deaths

Charles Darwin is known throughout the world as a creatortheory of evolution. According to the scientist, its main driving force is natural selection. In the ruthless world of nature, stupid and weak individuals die, and the smart and strong survive, leaving offspring, to which the mind and the power of their ancestors are inherited. That's how the monkey transformed into a human being.

Now people are not as vulnerable as in antiquity, andso the process of natural selection is slightly stalled. In today's world, even a stupid and weak homo sapiens can survive and leave offspring. But there are pronounced cretins that go away before they give birth to their children. Thus, they help humanity, because without their genes everything will be much better.

Darwin Award, nominees for which appearevery year, is just given to people who "have taken their contribution from the human gene pool." Most of the winners are awarded posthumously, but there are also "unique", who received the prize because of depriving themselves of reproductive organs in the most sophisticated way. In this article we will quote the top Darwin Prize.
