At-Risk Survivors have misadventures that stop short of the ultimate
sacrifice. Nevertheless we salute the spirit of their colossal
blunders with an Honorable Mention. Better luck next time!
2001 At-Risk Survivor
Confirmed True by Darwin
(October, Norway) A drunken robber, masked in his own underpants, presented a bank teller with a demand note and absconded with the money. But his gains were short-lived: his wife's name was written on the reverse side of the paper.
The 47-year-old man said he didn't remember the robbery, but had a suspicion he'd been up to no good when he saw the picture of the robber in the morning paper. The masked man was wearing a familiar pair of knickers, and our forgetful thief found an unexplained wad of cash in his pocket.
