Default Another one for the Darwin Awards

Fortunately, looks like the guy is OK. What are these people thinking?

By Associated Press, 7/25/2002 08:12
MEREDITH, N.H. (AP) A Derry man suffered serious cuts after being hit by a boat propeller while water skiing on Lake Winnipesaukee.

The state Marine Patrol said Robert Wilson, 42, was injured while attempting to pull himself onto a platform at the rear of a boat that had been pulling him Thursday afternoon.

He suffered several cuts. The Marine Patrol said the injuries didn't appear to be life-threatening.

Officers said the engine was running and the boat was in gear as Wilson attempted to climb aboard.

The same yahoo most likely will attempt to clean out the exit chute of his lawnmower while it is running

On a serious note, I catch many people doing this in small ski boats. Oncve I was being pulled by a friend of a friend sking. Once we stopped and I was swiming to the boat, the ass put in reverse at me so I wouldn't have to swim 10 feet. I told her to stop, and then corrected her "nicely" She then refused to turn the motor off in order for me to board I sat in the water for a min or so until she gave in.

Seriously, please inform these people of their mistakes if you see it happen. Can easily be a bad mistake.

Wouldn't it be cool if stupidity was painful? Then it would hurt before some else got hurt.
