2007 Darwin Awards

They've been collecting these reports all year but in year-end-review spirit, you can find the ones for 2007 here.

Superior Momentum

(23 June 2007, Illinois) Two Valparaiso men tested their reflexes by playing "chicken" with a train. Which man could stay on the rail longest in the path of an oncoming train? At the stroke of midnight, the contest was decided. The winner, aptly named Patrick Stiff, lost his life.

The train continued on, as the conductor was unaware it hit anyone.
