Charles Darwin at a green chalkboard.

2000 Darwin Awards

Honoring Charles Darwin, the father of evolution, Darwin Awards commemorate those who improve our gene pool--by removing themselves from it in the most spectacular way possible.

Throwing Stones
2000 Darwin Award Winner
Confirmed True by Darwin

(11 October 2000, Itim) The violent unrest in the Middle East has created a new Darwin Award winner. Alon and two friends went to the Eli junction to enjoy throwing stones at passing cars. They scored on a passing truck, then Alon walked into the street, stones in hand, to attack a passing car. The driver tried to swerve away from the stones, lost control of his car, and overturned, killing the stone thrower and severely injuring the driver. Judea and Samaria District police determined that the accidental crash was caused by the stone-throwing.

"Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."
