Drinking and Shotguns do not mix

As seen on the AP Wire -
Man Jailed After Shooting Self in Groin

http://www.newsday.com/news/nationw...01247.story?coll=sns-ap-nationworld-headlines
Highlights of article:

A man shot himself in the groin after drinking 15 pints of beer and stuffing a sawed-off shotgun down his trousers....

had gone home to get the shotgun after arguing in the pub with lifelong friend about whose turn it was to buy a beer.

As he was returning to the pub, which had closed by then, he accidentally fired the weapon.

Tests were continuing to learn if Walker would be left infertile, ...

He should be a contender for a Living Darwin Award.

No link to it (it happened maybe 5-6 years ago), but there was a drunken woman in Muncie, IN who shot off her foot as she attempted to remove a bunion with a shotgun.

Yeah, survival of the fittest still applies to the human race. Natural selection rules!

Natural selection no longer rules. The guy probably has a couple gallons of sperm frozen in the sperm bank. In 20-25 years there could again be a bunch of new beer drinking, shotgun toting guys de-groining themselves on the way to the bar.

That's difficult to gauge.

Its also possible that in 20 or 25 years the country could be in need of a large group of such.....limited common sense for use as canon fodder.....OOPS! I meant brave infantry men without thaught or fear! :-D
