Description

The Darwin Awards are given each year to the people who “remove themselves from the gene pool in a sublimely idiotic fashion” – think juggling active hand grenades or checking the inside of an oil barrel for flammable materials, with a lighter. A molecular biology graduate of UC Berkeley, Northcutt launched a cult phenomenon when she started chronicling the true, and morbidly hilarious, stories of deadly, idiotic accidents.
