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 the 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?
