Natural Selection #3 LOOSE CHANGE

Loose Change

(January 2006, Australia) Who would risk his life for some pocket change? A Natural Slection nominee, of course! A 35-year-old man in Sydney lost some change down a stormwater drain. Most sensible people would just let it go, especially as it had been raining. In fact, all sensible people would just let it go. But not our potential Natural Selection. This man removed the cover from the sewer, laid down on the road, and stuck his head and upper body down the drain to fish around for the coins. In this position, his lower body was lying across the road.

His plans to recover his money went wrong when a Ford SUV turned the corner. The driver, of course, failed to notice him. We generally don’t expect to see half a person lying on the road The vehicle’s bumper struck the man.

Our nominee was rushed to St. Vincent’s Hospital in serious condition, with a broken pelvis and internal injuries. He died a few days later from complications.

Loose change is not worth the risk!

This idiot is our Natural Selection Winner Number 3!
