Well, that's another warning they will need to add along with "DO NOT LET STUPID PEOPLE NEAR THE BBQ".

ZOMG We need barbecues control laws immediately! Every year hundreds of thousands of people die from carbon monoxide produced by various charcoal products (no shit). It's time to take charcoal away from people before more innocent children are kippered!! Teh Fox News! :x

Death and castration by stupidity. Removal from the genepool is the important part for eligibility.

East Ham. You don't really need any other explaination.

It's not a judges job to be emotive, that's for the tabloids and users of this forum:P

I thought death wasn't even necessary, i.e. some guy blows his balls off he's become nominated for a Darwin Award.

In English, we say, "a judge's job".

As to what qualifies, I believe it's anything which prevents or significantly inhibits procreation. Death would be the most certain to prevent it, but stupidity-induced genital destruction, reproductive tract eradication, buttfacial uglification, or own-child nullification negligency or opposite-sex sexual partner deathmogrification would seem to also be in the spirit of non-selection of the unfit.

According to that, I don't think buttfacial uglification, own-child nullification negligency, or opposite-sex sexual partner deathmogrification would qualify. :(

Inhibiting procreation is not sufficient, one must completely excise one's self from the gene pool somehow.
