The Darwin Award is a tongue-in-cheek honor given to people who die in truly mind-boggling ways. Most of those who win the award have died because of their own stupid and reckless actions. Named after naturalist Charles Darwin, who developed the theory of survival of the fittest, the award is meant to symbolize the improvement of human genetics by the removal of these not-so-bright people from the gene pool. The following gallery compiles some of the most mind-blowing stories of people who have managed to off themselves and earn the award. Vote for who you think should win first place after reading the gallery!
