Here are a couple of winners of the 2007 Darwin Awards. The awards are handed out in an attempt to honor people who ensure the long-term survival of the human race by removing themselves from the gene pool in a sublimely idiotic fashion.

A young Canadian man, searching for a cheap way to get drunk because he had no money with which to buy alcohol, mixed gasoline with milk. Not surprisingly, the concoction made him ill, and he vomited into the fireplace in his house. The resulting explosion and fire burned his house down, killing both him and his sister.

Three Brazilian men were flying in a light aircraft at low altitude when another plane approached. It appears they decided to moon the occupants of the other plane, but lost control of their own aircraft and crashed. They were all found dead in the wreckage with their pants around their ankles.

A man in Alabama died from rattlesnake bites. It seems he and a friend were playing a game of catch, using the rattlesnake as a ball. The friend, no doubt a future Darwin Awards candidate, was hospitalized.
