23 October, 2014 - And The Father Of The Year Award Goes To ...
Father of The Year Award
#Idiots #ATGATT #Morons - ... this douche bag. I can't tell from the photo if there is an actual baby in the baby carrier, but even if there isn't, it's still a very dumb move. The photo was taken somewhere in the Middle East.

#France #Darwin - Here is one motorcycle ride in France that should be on the list of Darwin Award nominees. Stupidity does not come close to what he did.

15 August, 2013 - Darwin Award Nominee #83645: Spanish Motorcycle Dealer

Spain flag
#Darwin #Award #Speeding - A motorcycle dealer in Spain's capital Madrid, got arrested for riding his motorcycle "slightly" over the speed limit. On a busy road limited to 90 kph, he was riding his bike at 247 kph!

When he was arrested, the 45 year old biker explained he worked for the local motorcycle dealer and was field testing the motorcycle before it went to the customers. Nice job, right?

He now stands the chance of spending 3 to 6 months in jail or 6 to 12 months community service. He will also need to look for another job since he will forfeit his driving license for 1 to 4 years.


8 August, 2013 - Darwin Award Nominee #82763: Self Filming Speeding Motorcycle 271 kph
French Biker Caught Tape
France flag
#Darwin #Speeding #Motorcycles - Some people really do not deserve to be called "human", and some have a room temperature I.Q. A French biker was stopped by the local Gendarmes after he was spotted riding his motorcycle in excess of 250 kph. The cops were drawn to his bike because of the extreme high noise it was making, since it was riding in full revs.

The cops stopped him and while inspecting his Suzuki bike, discovered a camera mounted on his handlebar. After watching the homemade video, they discovered that this 22 year old biker, with 2 years experience riding motorcycles, filmed himself riding at 271 kph on a road limited to 110, and 227 kph on a road limited to 90 kph.

The young biker explained his actions by saying he was "testing the video camera". He is now without a motorcycle and camera, no license and a court date.


12 July, 2013 - Darwin Awards: #82736 - New Motorcycle Gone In 48 Hours

France flag
#Squid #Darwin #Motorcycle - Some people never learn, while some people just do not get it. This Darwin Award nominee falls in the latter category.

A French motorcycle rider, 26 years of age, got caught riding the famous and notorious Parisian ring road (the Boulevard Peripherique) at 144 kph instead of the 80 kph allowed.

So far, nothing to earn this prestigious award. Except for two things:

1. He did not have his motorcycle license yet, since he was still studying for it.
2. He bought this brand new sportsbike 48 hours prior (bought it without a license, and therefore without insurance).

Now a) he has no new motorcycle (it got confiscated and will be turned into an ashtray or something similar), b) he will not be able to get his motorcycle license for a very long time and c) he will have to pay a fine of some €15,000 (and he might just end up in prison for some time).

If that is not worthy for a Darwin Award, what could be?
