Honoring those who improve our gene pool by inadvertently removing themselves from it, The Darwin Awards III includes more than one hundred brand new, hilariously macabre mishaps and misadventures. From a sheriff who inadvertently shot himself twice, to the insurance defrauder who amputated his leg with a chainsaw; from a farmer who avoided bee stings by sealing his head in a plastic bag to the man crushed by the branch he just trimmed, The Darwin Awards III proves again that when it comes to stupidity, no species does it like we do. Featuring scientific and safety discussions and filled wit

"Only two things are infinite-the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not so sure about the universe." -Albert Einstein Named in honor of Charles Darwin, the father of evolution, The Darwin Awards vividly portrays the finest examples of evolution in action, and shows us just how uncommon common sense can be. Marvel at the thief who steals electrical wires without shutting off the current. Gape at the lawnchair jockey who floats to a height of 16,000 feet suspended by helium balloons. Learn from the man who peers into a gasoline can using a cigarette lighter. All three -- an

In this miniature volume taken from the best-selling Darwin Awards series, men meet their inner idiots as they remove themselves from the gene pool. Driven by testosterone, they engage in unnatural encounters with vegetables, select bizarre rendezvous locations, and use downright dangerous erotic aids, thereby confirming the common belief that men don’t always think with their brains. Including full-color illustrations and nine never-before-published stories, this miniature collection makes a wonderful addition to the Darwin Awards library.

Despite being an international bestseller, and inspiring a movie—The Darwin Awards—these cautionary chronicles have failed to stop another generation of Darwin Award winners from steering motorcycles with their feet, heating lava lamps on stoves, using liquid soap as brake fluid, and drowning themselves in the kitchen sink. Filled with more than 100 new tales of evolution in action, plus science essays and a
