We’ve had a lengthy exchange of letters recently in the EXPLORER on Darwin, evolution and religion, continuing debates that started exactly 150 years ago.

For those interested in the evolution of our species, the annual Darwin Awards recognize those less evolved members who have removed themselves from the human gene pool by actions of conspicuous stupidity.

“When his .38-caliber revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach, Calif., would- be robber James Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. This time it worked.”

And honorable mention?

“When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at the scene to find a very sick man curled up by a motor home near spilled sewage.

“A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline and plugged his siphon hose into the motor home’s sewage tank by mistake.

“The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges, saying that it was the best laugh he’d had in years.”
