Talking Darwin Award Nominee

Quote:
Taken from another forum:
For those who don't know, I work in a Police radio room. At work the other night I took a call from the Firies about a vehicle fire in a suburb of Newcastle. Ambos also called as the driver was suffering burns. Police get on scene and finally get the full story, which I think is worthy of a nomination in the Darwin awards.

The plonker who owns the car got a red defect label last week as the car is seriously unroadworthy. Gets the vehicle towed home where it sits for a while before he succumbs to temptation and starts driving it again. Only problem is that whilst it has been sitting there it has somehow managed to get water in the fuel tank. Einstein's solution is to disconnect the fuel lines from the tank and run them to a jerry can which he sits IN THE FOOTWELL BEHIND THE DRIVER'S SEAT!

He then drives off and picks up his mate and they drive around for a while before noticing that the jerry can has fallen over and fuel has leaked under the driver's seat. They stop, fix the jerry can up, then ol' mate decides to make a call on his mobile and - wait for it - HAVE A SMOKE WHILST SITTING IN THE CAR!!

Up she goes!!! Result? Burns to legs, chest, GENITALS, hands and airway. His mate in the passenger seat had minor burns to his legs. Driver gets a chopper ride to Royal North Shore for treatment and skin grafts.

But did he really render himself unable to breed, and is currently without children. I'd be willing to bet that he can't actually win based on that; BUT DAMN!

And here I was thinking this would be a bike story.

Nope. That's why it was posted in the "Non-Motorcycle Topics > All Other topics" section.


I wonder if they took skin grafts from his elbow to rebuild his testicles???

Thanks, brother. I'm touched.

FTR, there's an old saying about God making men's testicles from left-over elbow skin. Have you never made the connection between the two? Go on, straighten your arm and feel your elbow skin. Feels just like your balls, hey, just a bit less hairy!

Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks??

So, am I back at the big person's table again?






FTR, Mythbusters disproved the old dog / new tricks theory.

You never left bro... just razzing ya! If you and the Mrs. make it to this side of the pond you got a place to stay. Nice roads, and only a couple hundred miles from Deals Gap!

Likewise, mate. No Deal's Gap over here, but plenty of twisties none-the-less.
