    Quite simple. He got himself killed in a phenomenally stupid way and it was all his own fault. Darwin Awards are given to idiots who find creative ways to remove themselves from the gene pool.

    He effectively removed himself from the gene pool doing something stupid didn't he?


    Now I want to know how to pronounce Jinah and Alnoor. Freakish Canadian names get a normal one like Gerrit(<-- pronounced like Garrett and yes people confuse us all the time)


    EDIT: Gerrit is a kid at my school.

    Freakish Canadian names? Those are Muslim names. I'm sure they'd love to hear that you consider their names freakish. :rolleyes: We happen to have a lot of different cultures living here.

    No. Two reasons:

    1. Drunk drivers are more likely to kill innocent people than themselves. Accidents of fate, or death by someone else's stupidity, are not valid.

    2. Driving drunk and running into a tree at 70 mph is an effective way to remove a dumb person from the gene pool, but it's also very common. Darwin Awards are given to people who find stupid and creative ways to get themselves killed.

    I find the fact that his name is Jinah and his roommate's name is Hwang pretty funny. But that's just me being immature.

    I heard that. Remember, the K in Karleton stands for Kuality!

    I think Ash has it right. He got disqualified for passing the line. Plus he's dead. How the hell do you gloss over the way he died in the eulogy?

    oh, and... *smacks MasterAzn with a large trout*
