      This thread has not attracted much interest, although there are hundreds of videos out there with very good candidates for the award.
      Here is one: http://gcaptain.com/clowns-clearly-i...Captain.com%29

        Having Googled the Darwin Awards and looked at your third candidate I am surprised that you are surprised that the thread hasn't caught on. Or perhaps you're just being provocative again, Ombugge? .....

          Whoever made this mistake, or whoever checked and approved it would probably be good candidates for the Darwin Award: http://gcaptain.com/commemorative-su...glaring-error/

            Funny to believe that a mistake like that could be made except that they contracted the design out to a foreign company. There is probably some young graphic designer thinking every canal has gotta have locks.

            Yea, whoever it was is now looking frantically for a believable excuse, if there is one.

                  Maybe to stretch it a bit, but this is not the way to land a big fish: http://www.vgtv.no/#!/video/109119/h...dda-med-gjedda
                  Especially not this type of fish.

                      Kit boarding in 50 kts. wind in a busy port should qualify for the Darwin Award, me think: http://gcaptain.com/watch-kitesurfer...content=261222
