Down here in NZ Darwinism is alive and well.
The latest attempt (As yet).
Teens injured in 'huffing' blast named - National - NZ Herald News
2 lads end up with severe burns, including lungs, after huffing (inhaling the gas) from a 9Lt canister of Liquid Petroleum Gas in a closed room with an open fire!
The explosion also blew the roof off the house and windows out.
it really makes me look forward to going to work to pay taxes, as if these idiots survive they'll probably be on an Invalids Benefit for the rest of their lives.

Every year it happens..... how do you educate people that ANYTHING that burns ANYTHING.... wood, gas, LPG, charcoal, diesel, coal, wether it's a fire, generator, barbecue, chimenea, will generate carbon monoxide and kill you.
Even making toast on a gas grill for a few people, without opening a window......

We had a contender in Sheffield this week who, after cooking with his chip pan, thought it would be a really good idea to place the chip pan in his fridge to " cool down " before he went to bed.
Funnily enough he was woken in the early hours by copious amounts of smoke coming from his fridge which had, funnily enough, caught fire!!

One of the fatal RTAs I had to deal with last year was a Darwin contender... A couple of guys were mucking about as they were walking TO the pub (they weren't even pissed and were in their 30s so not classed as 'dim teenagers'). In a 20mph limit in a residential street and one of them decides it would be fun to stop the traffic by disguising himself as a speed hump. So drapes his long coat over him and lays on the road as a car approached....
Young girl driving the car saw his mate by the side of the road giggling like a schoolgirl at his 'funny' mate and decides to put the boot down and drive past him over the speed hump.... She went right over his head....
(Annoying really as that fatal accident goes against our accident figures and gives the local press something to beat us with that 'The Roads are Unsafe!' horror....)
