Darwin award: Woman shoots dead her boyfriend making a YouTube video

(US) Since the advent of mobile phones, people have populated YouTube and its likes with homemade videos. There’s family pets, shows and of course incidents. However, one very popular category is stunts, or more correctly stupid stunts.

Well, today a young couple in Minnesota decided to carry out such a stunt where she would shoot a bullet into a hardcover encyclopaedia held by her boyfriend against his chest. The problem was, the gun they used was 50-calibre Desert Eagle (only one of the most powerful semi-automatic handguns in the world), and for some very strange reason, the .50 round not only went straight through the book, it went through the idiot holding it. She has now been arrested on manslaughter charges. Naturally, the victim is a recipient of the Darwin award.

How the hell can anybody be so bloody stupid?
