LoL, that's so funny. What ******.

I also like this bit.

traces of accelerant (flammable substance) were found at the scene.
Do so many people really not know what accelerant means to warrent the brackets. :p

*shakes head*

This is why the rest of us have to suffer sub-standard films that have been hacked to pieces to remove more "suggestible" elements (*cough*Spawn*cough*) - next thing people are going to be lobbying against Star Wars as dangerous to children.

Dangerous to ****** is more like it, and that's how it should be.

With the world suffring from overpopulation, you'd think things would be allowed to thin the herd a little. What on earth made them think that petrol filled glass tubing was the most logical method of replicating lightsabers? I've got a better idea, ground magnesium is far brighter, use that!

I do believe we have found some prime candidates for the Darwin Award.

Right, those two guys will never be candidates for the Nobel prize. However, they may be awarded with The Stupidest Idea of the Year, which includes a splendid plaque and a bus ride home.

Yes read that in the Sun yesterday, hilarious. The bit I liked is the guy filming it ran away in terror when his two mates set themselves on fire :D.

Not really. They haven't died yet.

Have they taken themselves out of the gene-pool though? (that is the criteria for a Darwin) I'm sure they will at least get a Honorable Mention.

Right NOT YET.

Anyway being horribly burned at a young age tends to put the chance of procriation on a low flame.

Which makes them elligable again.

Why do I get the feeling Darwin has been denied something

That's priceless, I hope someone releases the tape onto the net. I can see it now: "Only a master of evil, Darren... OH ****!"

Typical fanboy attitude :p .

Would you rather be remembered for getting incinerated while trying to build a lightsabre, or for, say, dying after slipping in the shower? :cool:

25-05-2005, 18:13
Or being pecked to death by Professer Yaffle? :p

This is somewhere between sad and hilarious.

Antaeus
25-05-2005, 18:31
I don't remember the episode of Bagpuss where he pecks someone to death. Skewered organ mouse, anyone? ;)

Glad there's someone else who remembers the old programme though. Anyway, I'll cease my off-topic witterings.

Well damn, they did not kill each other. It does feel as if the Devil was denied two more souls :rollseyes:

I suppose it would make for quite an amusing epitath, but what relative would actually put "Father of twelves, died heroically imitating Star Wars with household chemicals" on a gravestone?

Well he could have just seen it in your sig... And anyway, Professor Yaffle was a lover, not a fighter :cool: .

I still cannot quite see there logic? Either they seal the tube, petrol burns out, or leave it open and spray the stuff everywhere. Either way, wow, ******.

I live about 15-20 minutes away from Hemel Hempstead... I went to school there. It does not surprise me that people are setting fire to themselves out of sheer stupidity after knowing who went to school in that town. I almost feel like I'm on the outskirts of an *****-bomb just waiting to explode in a fiery conflagration of idiocy. i'm going to build myself a bunker in the back garden, just in case.

I've always thoght we should just have a cull to reduce overpopulation :D

I'd have to say that living and recovering with out to much facial scaring would probably be my preffered option. Then you get the story, get to tell it and get to have people stay with you long enough to tell the story.

actually dying from a lightsaber isn't painfull, it's like dying from a very powerfull flas...ehem..lasgun.
And as we all know, there is no bleeding because the heat has sealed the wound and the person can't feel much.

(Lucas is obsessed with lightsabers chopping arms off, and not anything else.)

26-05-2005, 13:30
heh, i Saw this in the news the other day, and you what the best part is?

It's all from where I live, one of my friends used to work with the 17 year old girl.

it's official, hemel Hempstead is full of idiots. :D

I'm sure the Darwins have been stated to be awarded post-humously to those who do a great service to the gene-pool by removing themselves from it.
Posthumous being very deliberately stated in the criteria


These poor fools are so inept they can't even kill themselves and earn a Darwin
What a let down :rolleyes: :p

It may have been a stupid mistake, but it is still pretty tragic. What if it had been someone you knew and or cared for?

grey_painter
26-05-2005, 14:52
I'd hope that everyone I know and care for isn't stupid enough to play with petrol in glass tubes. They deserve all the ridicule they get really.

I am waiting for the video to be released, should make it part of an educational package about why playing with fire is a bad thing.

"I'd hope that everyone I know and care for isn't stupid enough to play with petrol in glass tubes. They deserve all the ridicule they get really."

No they don't, the scars, pain and slow long recovery ought to be enough.

26-05-2005, 16:04
Probably even more amusing than the guy who tried to cut open a hand grenade with a chainsaw, in a geeky sort of way...

And i dont see how anyone could feel any compassion or sympathy for the two mindless idiots, they got what they deserved. Act like an idiot, die like an idiot. (Or at least be hideously burned and mutilated in the attempt.) :D

26-05-2005, 16:42
I'm just saying that the pain that they will suffer will be lesson enough, if everybody wants to be childish and ridicule them than go ahead.

Deserved? ...OH YES!

Well they sort of got what they deserved, and whilst it should be enough, we are all entitled to act childish especially when presented with such a superb opertunity.

I end with the statement of eternal stupidity on my part and theirs..... duh

I the daily record a while ago (I don't read it I say the article when a friend found it) a man in Russia chopped off his wang to get the attention of his family during an argument about debt. The funny thing was he took one swipe with an axe, didn't get through and then finished the job with a second blow.

Apparently he really regreted it the second it was detatched from him.

That man got what he deserved, and a funny story to tell his grandchil..... his families grandchildren :p

Yeah, him and that quaker guy who did it in Washington in front of the Whitehouse.

It's funny when bad things happen to other people.
A scientist told me that, that makes it true

And because it's bad things brought on by the individual that suffers them, that makes it okay to laugh.
Just think of it as a large, flaming, glass-encased banana skin that a pair of fools slipped on intentionally.


I don't know about you other guys, but I'm with Bill Hicks on this one. What a tragedy? What a *****! Hey guys, we're missing another *****! :cries: :p
