2004 At-Risk Survivor
The stupidity displayed by the participants in the following tales stops short of the ultimate Darwin Awards sacrifice. Nevertheless, we salute the spirit and innovation of their misadventures. Next Prev Random

Permanent Prophylactic
2004 At-Risk Survivor
Confirmed True by Darwin

(27 October 2004, Topraiser, Romania) Nicolae, a 43-year-old father of five, was known to his friends as a pragmatic man, so it only made sense that he would turn to contraception in an effort to prevent another pregnancy. When it turned out the condom his grateful wife bought was too large, he had a brilliant thought: Why not just superglue the condom onto his penis? Unfortunately, after their romp he encountered an unexpected difficulty: the condom would not come off. In a panic, he rushed to the local clinic for help. He told a nurse that he thought the condom could be used several times, and wanted it stuck on his penis so he could re-use it later. According to the nurse, "We barely managed to remove it in the end." © 1994 - 2017
