KMOX: Suspected Thief Electrocuted
To quote Thomas Edison, "He was Westinghoused."
I thought the primary elections were supposed to weed out the stupid... Turns out, it's primary wire that does it!
Those 8,000 volt lines will do it every time. For best results, use all three phases.
One leg of a 4160 circuit is enough to charge me up, thank you.

Oops, wrong clown.
The latest episode of unrequited Darwinism ....
Yahoo News: NY motorcyclist dies on ride protesting helmet law
We need to keep an eye on this guy. He's a good candidate to be a future subject of this thread.
AP: Swedish man caught trying to split atoms at home
Don't try this at home, folks.
Another one bites the dust, this time in Houma, LA ....
WAFB 9: Man electrocuted while alledgedly stealing electric wire
Made me laugh out loud with this one Mike - keep 'em coming.
Sadly this "rocket scientist's" wife was the victim.
Technically he's not a Darwin candidate, since he can still reproduce.
Maybe the rocket ricochet off her head and into his crotch thereby rendering him neutered.
That would render him eligible.
Unfortunately for him, I don't think you're allowed to win Darwin awards by proxy. His wife is indeed removed from the gene pool, but no Darwin for him.
The could be a novel approach to getting a Darwin. A long-term, faithful relationship with a rubber raft certainly would put a damper on any contributions to the gene pool.
CBS News: Ohio man arrested for alleged sex act with inflatable raft in alley
Okay, I admit I laughed my head off when I read this headline, but this story is just sad. This man is sad. He's clearly seriously mentally ill, and it chills me to think how we treat such people in this society.
And so we go full circle --WLS is reporting the demise of yet another one of Madison County's brighter bulbs:
Ill. man killed trying to steal power lines
Yes. We hand them blue shirts and tin badges and tell them to grope people to make them feel safer when they fly.
This guy only gets an honorable mention because he's still alive, but he certainly has a lot of potential as Darwin material:
CBS Seattle: Not a Halloween Costume: Washington Man Cuts Off Arm With Guillotine
However, if he doesn't quite make the cut next time, it will be a lot harder to come back for a third attempt.
oh I don't know, there was no victim in this case. He'll probably be all right so long as nobody lets him watch "Deliverance".
