A few years back, I was going to run for President of the United States and start a new party called "Common Sense". But I was told that I would not get any votes because people did not know what Common Sense was anymore. sad.gif

Here's another Near Miss:

---

Doctors say a Chinese man who swallowed a three-inch knife to fool police is lucky to be alive.

Mao Kyan, 36, downed the weapon as police raided his flat searching for drugs.

Keen to avoid an extra charge of possessing a weapon, he pushed the knife down his throat, where it stuck.

Kyan believed it had somehow been digested, but after suffering throat pains eight months later, he went to hospital, Russian news website Pravda reported.

Medics were staggered to find the knife and carried out an immediate operation to remove it.

They described his survival as a miracle, adding that the knife "could have killed him at any second".

Why you don't grill with gasoline.

A family barbeque in Lehi had a horrible ending because of an explosion.

Witnesses say a 40-year old man was having trouble getting the grill hot enough, so he poured gasoline on it.

The fire flared and the gas can exploded, causing third degree burns on the man.

He was flown to the University of Utah Hospital with burns on about a third of his body.

OK, for those of you that don't know: Don't grill/barbecue with gasoline.

I think of that kind of thing every time I see some door knob squirting lighter fluid on burning fire. I guy my aunt knew died that way. He was, like I said, squirting lighter fluid on a burning fire in his fire place when the flame traveled up the stream. The can exploded killing the man and burning his house down.

And for today's nominee:

A Milwaukee woman has died after accidentally dousing herself in lighter fluid.

Police said the woman, 31, was trying to throw the lighter fluid on her boyfriend to set him on fire, but ended up burning herself instead.

Her boyfriend had only minor injuries.

Police said the two were having an argument at their home on 18th and State Street.

During the incident the house caught fire, and eight people are now homeless.

Explosion smashes Lincoln man's face
By Leah Thorsen

An explosion heard up to a mile away from Brian Kitten's south Lincoln yard.

An explosion that shot a chunk of concrete into Kitten's face, knocking him out, breaking his jaw and smashing some teeth.

The fireworks show didn't go as planned.

That's why Kitten, co-owner of Brewsky's, was listed in fair condition Monday afternoon at BryanLGH Medical Center West.

On Friday, Kitten was in his yard at 1955 S. Pershing Road, near South 20th and Calvert streets.

About 11 p.m., Kitten tried to fire an artillery fireworks shell from a homemade launcher, which was a five-gallon bucket with concrete on the bottom, police said.

Maybe he incorrectly loaded the shell, which was lit by a long wick, into a tube. Or maybe it got stuck, said Ken Hilger, the city fire inspector investigating the explosion.

Whatever happened, the fireworks - listed as "Class B," meaning they're intended for use at commercial shows - exploded too early.

The blast sent chunks of the bucket and concrete flying in a circle, smashing through a fence, breaking windows in Kitten's house and a neighboring house - and ripping apart Kitten's face.

Men Apparently Lighting Fireworks In Vehicle

POSTED: 7:34 am EDT June 29, 2004

MELBOURNE, Fla -- A 23-year-old man was killed and another injured when fireworks in the back seat of their car exploded and ignited the car, according to Local 6 News.

Police said Aravis Walker, 23, and Antonio Robinson, 27, were lighting fireworks and throwing them from their vehicle Mondaynight while driving in the area of Carver Street in Melbourne, Fla.

At some point, an amber from a cigarette or one of the lit fireworks fell on the back seat of the car and ignited several other explosives.

Robinson was able to exit the vehicle after running into a light pole at Carver Street and Walker Street. However, Walker was not able to get of the car and sat in the car as it burned.

Both men were burned over 90 percent of their bodies and transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center.

Not really a "survival of the fittest", but certainly a description of a "genius".

---

A gas station in North Phoenix sold $500,000 worth of over-the-counter decongestants, whose active ingredient is pseudoephedrine, in the past year.

That was more that the value of the gasoline he sold during the same period.

Pseudoephedrine is the key ingredient used to produce the addictive illegal drug methamphetamine.

There must be a ton of people in North Phoenix with head colds.

And some more genuises:

Two teenagers were injured in an explosion when they used a sledgehammer to extract gunpowder from shotgun shells and bullets, police said.

Authorities were investigating whether the 16-year-old boys were trying to make homemade fireworks the night of July 4.

The teens were taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital with first-, second- and third-degree burns, Harris County Fire Marshal Mike Montgomery said. The hospital did not release any information about the victims.

Police said the teens were grinding powder from the shells and bullets with a hammer, setting off the blast in a Harris County home.

Investigators seized bullets, a homemade discharging device and a videotape the youths made to document their efforts, police said.

Okay, first of all: Eamon, you may have the best avatar I have seen thus far. I *love* Stephen in 'Braveheart.' I've even tried to catch some other movies David O'Hara has been in.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch.....
The Darwin Awards are one of my favorite things on earth. Y'all just don't know. Here's one for ya...

Darwin Award: Sequined Pastie
1998, New Jersey

Burlesque clubs aren't as safe as they used to be. An unidentified 29-year-old man choked to death on a sequined pastie he had removed with his teeth from an exotic dancer at a Phillipsburg establishment. "I didn't think he was going to eat it," said a dancer identified only as Ginger, adding, "He was really drunk." If Ginger had used stronger pastie adhesive, this Darwin winner would still be swimming in the gene pool.

Here's a Darwin Award Winner that highlights the intellect of everyone's best friend: the armed robber.

Wrong Time, Wrong Place
3 February, 1990, Washington

A man tried to commit a robbery in Renton, Washington. It was probably his first attempt at armed robbery, as suggested by the fact that he had no previous record of violent crime, and by his terminally stupid choices:
1. The target was H & J Leather and Firearms. A gun shop.
2. The shop was full of customers -- firearms customers -- in a US state where a substantial portion of the adult population is licensed to carry concealed handguns in public places.
3. To enter the shop, he had to step around a marked police patrol car parked at the front door.
4. An officer in uniform was standing next to the counter, having coffee before reporting to duty.

Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a holdup and fired a few wild shots. The officer and a clerk promptly returned fire, covered by several customers who also drew their guns, thereby removing the confused criminal from the gene pool. No one else was hurt.
