    Hello Everybody,

    There is a reason why the USA handily defeated the Netherlands
    (2-0) in today's final for the women's World Cup -

    Double Darwin Award!

    So many train deaths, the editors are railing against stupidity.

    (2 March 2014, Netherlands) Two intoxicated men dared each other to
    test their courage against an intercity train at a Rotterdam train
    station. At 1800 hours on a Sunday evening, the station was crowded
    with more than 300 fans returning from a soccer-match pitting Feyenoord
    against Ajax at De Kuip, the most beautiful soccer stadium in Holland.

    The two men stepped off the platform and strode forth onto the tracks.
    One superdaredevil lay down between the tracks, intending to prove that
    the entire train would pass over him. What a story to tell! His friend
    was less confident and he merely knelt down next to the track and kept
    his head as close as possible to where he thought the train's profile
    would be. Turns out that the 130 km/h train that came down the track
    some seconds later was both lower and wider than they thought.
    They were killed instantly.

    The 300+ onlookers on the platform were none too pleased by the
    spectacle, and train traffic was interrupted for several hours while authorities cleaned up the mess.

    Reader Comments:

    "The panel of judges were unanimous in their decision."

    "Life is hard. It's harder when you're stupid."

    "Immanent justice is merciless."

    "I've got an idea. Here, hold my beer."
