Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Monday, January 15, 2018

6 out of 10

I got this hardcover from a friend who's downsizing. It's a collection of anecdotes from the "Darwin Award" web site about a variety of incredibly foolish and sometimes fatal decisions. It's unclear how many of these are verifiable, but it does suggest how many different ways people can find to get in trouble. The more amusing ones are those with the least serious consequences, such as the guy who reported mistaking a can of Easy-Off oven cleaner for insect repellent (ouch!).

[There's a TV Tropes page on the web site and the books, with some entertaining comments.]
