A new study published in the British Medical Journal which examined the Darwin Award winners states that 88.7 percent of them are males. Nominees of the Darwin awards significantly improve the gene pool by eliminating themselves from the human race in an obviously stupid way.
They are self-selected examples of the dangers inherent in a lack of common sense, and all human races, cultures, and socioeconomic groups are eligible to compete.
The winners of the awards have been their idiotic best. There have been examples where a man shot himself in the head with a ‘spy pen’ weapon to show his friend it was real. There has also been a man stealing a ride home by hitching a shopping trolley to the back of a train, he got dragged for two miles and then died.
A young lad, 15-year-old Ben Alexander Daniel Lendrem from the Newcastle, U.K, and his father, Dennis Lendrem, carried the analysis. The father-son duo defined the term idiotic as “senseless… where the apparent payoff is negligible or non-existent, and the outcome is often extremely negative and often final.” The authors also went on elaborating on the theory, they said, “According to ‘male idiot theory’ (MIT) many of the differences in risk seeking behavior, emergency department admissions, and mortality may be explained by the observation that men are idiots and idiots do stupid things. In this paper we present evidence in support of this hypothesis using data on idiotic behaviors demonstrated by winners of the Darwin Award.”
The researchers set out on analyzing Darwin award winners in the span of 20 years. Out of the 318 award winners they analysed, 282 were given to men, while only 36 to women. This is a large different amongst the sexes, proving the fairer sex to be more sane than their male counterparts.
