Of all the best-of and worst-of end-of-year retrospectives, my macabre favorite is always the Darwin Awards. The (official?) logo reminds me of a favorite expression of mine: "Extrapolation is when, upon reaching the edge of a cliff, you keep walking, because the ground has been flat so far."

This year doesn't seem to quite match up to earlier years. One entry in particular - "Tennessee Pee" - has me confused. I mean, who wouldn't climb a clearly marked barbed wire fence to climb on top of a high power transformer to pee on a wasp nest that obviously shouldn't be there?
