2014 Darwin Award Nominees


We start the new year in our quest for nominees for the 2014 Darwin awards with this gentleman. His name is Jake Stonerman and has never actually used a chain saw before, or had any training, but was quite certain he could figure out hoe to fire it up to cut down a few trees in his back yard. After all how hard could it be?

Jake was successful in cranking the chain saw up to a high speed, however, because the blade was positioned between his legs, as shown in the photo, Jake wasn’t able to cut down any trees in the yard. He did, however, do quite a bit of damage to the ‘woody’ between his legs.

The last medical report gave him about a 50/50 chance of ever being able to use that particular member again.

Anyone who wants to submit a nomination for the prestigious Darwin Awards is certainly invited to do so right here.  Next December we will pick the ten best and put them on display right here.


About J. D. Groover

I truely believe that what should matter most in life is how you see yourself, not how someone else tries to convince you to see yourself. *****Life is not about "finding yourself"*****its about creating yourself.!!!!! I write and post things here because I like to think I am contributing some things of value to my world. Some times a little humor, some times things with a more serious tone, but hopefully always in good taste. If what I post occasionally bites a politician in the ass, all the better :>)

    Been living in the woods of Alaska for years and never seen anyone do anything that stupid with a chain saw. It’s going to take a lot to surpass that guy for the Darwin award.

    Maybe he’s Jewish.


  4. Not to be missed! Shame an otherwise lay-down misere winner in my own adopted locality was too late to get into the 2013 Darwins and too early to qualify for 2014’s. He was a security guard at a restaurant in Sanur, Bali, who answered the call to help capture a 15ft python that had been seen in the grounds of the Bali Hyatt Hotel (it’s closed until 2015 for renovations). Unfortunately his understanding of the principles of dynamic physics as applied by constrictors was less than perfect. Having won the enthusiastic contest to corral the reptile he placed it around his neck. It promptly strangled him. Shouldn’t laugh, really, but somehow I can’t help it…
