THE LANDMARK, PLATTE CO., MO – There was a grocery store down the street from where I grew up called Bob’s IGA. Inside of that store was a video game called “Elevator Action.” Unlike Pac-Man or Galaga, this game required a “spy” to sneak in and out of different doors and then ride elevators to various treasure-laden floors.

This week is fireworks week in the Midwest, and it seems important to remind everyone that you only get one life in this game:

  • Losing a finger or an eye sure sounds like a great story to tell at parties, but it’s not, really.
  • Losing your life because you wanted to light an M-80 out of your butt is an even dumber story – because it’s likely your next of kin telling it.

There’s a website devoted to recent “Darwin” award winners. The Darwins are given to those who die to allow for evolution to cull those who aren’t making the cut:

  • The site references a man who died while jumping out of his car in the middle of an automatic car wash.
  • It talks about a man who kept dangerous types of venomous snakes found in his home after being bitten by a venomous snake.
  • It mentions a wealthy man who died touring an active volcano when… you guessed it… the volcano erupted.

Money isn’t a barrier to being dumb, fortunately. But it does amplify the stupidity. A quarter used to buy me three men on Elevator Action. Now, a quarter of a million dollars bought four “explorers” a one-way trip to the bottom of the sea. Welcome to the Darwin Awards. READ MORE.
