The Darwin Awards Next Evolution by Wendy Northcutt

Darwin Awards are awarded posthumously to those who remove themselves from the gene pool in a way that makes you go “a lot of beer must have gone into that one.” The Darwin Awards Next Evolution describes the final acts of several people as well as things done by at risk survivors. The vignettes are humorous and clearly marked whether they are confirmed or unconfirmed. Interspersed between the chapters are essays on scientific topics ranging from mosquito spit to duck phalli to real life Hobbits. There’s an extensive FAQ at the end (too extensive, honestly). It’s a fun read and occasionally educational, too. It can all be found on the Darwin Awards website, but it’s often more convenient to read in book form.
