    She was beautiful. "Competitive eating" is a weird concept to me.

    Good to know it didn't interfere with the chemicals in her face. And it's always nice to celebrate still being alive with champagne. LOL.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    My mother was a cleaning nut. Using just one cleaner didn't do it for her. So she combined bleach and ajax, which created a chemical cloud over the commode seat. I flushed it and the cloud disappeared. Mama deserves at least an honorable mention for that here.

    Two things:

    1) She probably thought the guy would swerve at the last second and go around her.
    2) It was a selfie - there simply has to be at least one great picture of the chlorine hitting the gene pool.

    On second thought, I think I know what went wrong:
    I bet they forgot to flap their arms while they were airborne.

    A moment of careless forgetfulness that turned an everyday, routine, jumping-your-car-over-a-drawbridge commute into a needlessly fatal accident.
    Everybody knows you've got to flap your arms.

    Damn - I don't normally get amused when people get killed, but these guys were beyond crackhead stupid.

    It was too funny not to share. The World didn't need for them to pass on their Genetic Idiocy. Their Toxicology Report would be interesting to see.

    Just wanted to point out that at this time, the Mt. Everest climber deaths thread is *just* upstairs from this Darwin Awards thread. No offense to all climbers, or even to the ones who died while backed up in...climber traffic?...but it’s an interesting juxtaposition

    Climbing above breathable oxygen levels for selfies and bragging rights seems to be all the rage.
    Maybe there should be turnstiles and occupancy limits.

    Imagine if Disney didn't make your form a queue for Splash Mountain - it'd be nuts, I say.

    I really can't figure out how this woman managed to reach the age of 58.
    A manicurist in South Carolina has been killed by an alligator after trying to touch it or pet it.

    https://news.yahoo.com/woman-killed-...190145305.html

    Seems she had done the nails of a client in a gated community there, and saw an alligator in a pond.
    She decided that she wanted to get close to it, as you do whenever you see large alligators in nearby ponds.

    As she attempted to touch it, the homeowner and her husband were screaming at her to get away from it, telling her that they had seen it grab a deer from that same spot earlier.

    "But I don't look like a deer..."; she said.
    That was either one stupid gator, or maybe it was just unencumbered by human-like biases whereby it discriminates against ready sources of food according to species; thus making it an enlightened alligator. As she reached to touch the gator, it surprisingly (or not) attacked and pulled her under water.

    Now far too often, the story would pretty much end at that point.
    In this case, it does not.

    The woman actually surfaced, stood up in the pond and said, "I guess I won't do that again!"
    She was right, too.

    As the husband and a neighbor were trying to pull her out with a rope, the gator decided that he liked the taste of idiocy and again took her under.

    Now there is an important lesson here for everyone, especially for future contenders for future Darwin Awards.
    I really don't need to get into that though, most of us don't need to hear it due to "survival instinct" and "common sense", and for others; it will simply be wasted information.

    I get how this women thinks (thought). "The stove is hot, the fridge is cold ,but they both run on electricity. I don't get it ?"

    There are people who think wild animals are cute and harmless. It brings to mind that person who wanted a closer look at zoo lions, the woman who tried to pet a giant panda. And the woman I know on facebook who staked out her woods every morning, waiting for a fox to show up. She fed it every day and reported it on facebook. "It's so cute! It's not dangerous at all! Foxes have bad reps." She wanted to pet it. I'm like, rabies, lady, rabies. I think her friends finally convinced her to leave it alone.

    That's too bad - these stories are often so amusing.
