Win a Copy of The Darwin Awards Next Evolution

Jason English

Today's book giveaway is a great one "“ The Darwin Awards Next Evolution: Chlorinating the Gene Pool. If you're not familiar with the Darwin Awards, here's a quick primer: "The Awards honor people who ensure the long-term survival of the human race by removing themselves from the gene pool in a sublimely idiotic fashion." Previous winners have earned Darwins by jumping out of a plane without a parachute (while attempting to film skydivers) and crashing through a window and suffering a fatal fall (while trying to demonstrate that the window is unbreakable).

You don't need to be that morbid in your submissions, but you should be both honest and brave. To earn a copy of The Darwin Awards, tell us about the stupidest thing you've ever done. (I'm looking for ha-ha stupid, not I've-been-waiting-30-years-to-admit-to-those-felonies stupid.) The person with the most hilarious/stupid/embarrassing story wins.
