There is a prize for people who killed themselves in stupid ways!

Named in honor of Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution, the Darwin Awards commemorate those who were killed due to extremely stupid actions « thus, chlorinating the human genetic pool. »

The project was launched in 1993 with the creation of a website, followed by a series of books starting from 2000, written by Wendy Northcutt, the designer of the project. Furthermore, accidental self-sterilization is also eligible, and the price is usually awarded posthumously.

The first to receive this award was a student who dressed himself as Dracula for Halloween. He put a pine board under his shirt so he could stick a knife into the board in a realistic way and pretend he was stabbed.

In front with his friends, he hit the knife with a hammer causing a crack in the board, and the knife penetrating his heart. The poor guy then shouted « I really did it! » dying before the eyes of his friends.
