Today's Darwin Award Goes To…

Two guys set a new ‘stupid’ standard.

Reuters: A hand grenade being used instead of a ball in a game of catch exploded early on Saturday killing three youths in this Bosnian town, police and news agencies said.

Two youths aged 19 and 20, one of them from neighboring Croatia, were killed instantly while a 20-year-old woman died on her way to hospital, police said. Her sister was slightly injured but two other youths suffered serious injuries.

Not your average game of pickup.

If these guys were 9 and 10 years old, I might be able to understand this, but 19 and 20? Jeez.

Now, lest you think they had all of their 10 braincells working when this happened, the story goes on to mention that this tragedy occurred at 2:00 AM, which makes it likely that the grenade wasn’t the only thing loaded at that hour.
