    Default Darwin Awards

    The Darwin Awards commemorate those who improve our gene pool by removing themselves from it.

    In order to qualify for a Darwin Award a person must remove himself from the gene pool via an "astounding misapplication of judgement.

    On our beaches this summer an astounding number of surfers are attempting to qualify for the award, by various means such as swimming outside the flags, outside patrolled hours and when conditions are dangerous.

    The only reason most of them do not succeed is because of intervention by the lifesavers.

    How about the mob in the Antarctic stopping their bloody catamaran in front of a Jap ship doing full speed.

    Why does there seem to be more crazies in Darwin ?

    Car destroyed by fire as drunken men use welder to transform 4WD into convertible

    Concerned residents in Alawa called police after a 4WD burst into flames when two drunken men tried to transform the vehicle into a convertible.

    Duty Superintendent Rob Burgoyne said the men, aged 42 and 31, had been drinking when they decided to use an oxyocetylene welder to convert an unregistered landcruiser wagon.

    He said the car was engulfed in flames when sparks set the interior alight.

    "The car was totally destroyed by the fire, it was [an] unregistered vehicle, it was an older vehicle so not a great deal of value but still a bit of a worry that somebody would do something so stupid," Duty Superintendent Burgoyne said.

    When the vehicle became engulfed in flames concerned neighbours called police and the fire brigade.

    The suburban Alawa street was briefly closed, and reopened once the fire was extinguished.

    "The vehicle was extinguished and eventually the road was cleared and it's unlikely we'll be charging anyone for stupidity."
