Sounds like natural selection to me!
Devon Staples, 22, was killed instantly this past 4th of July weekend after he attempted to light a firework off the top of his head. While some may see Staples’ unfortunate accident as a nominee for the Darwin Awards, his mother, Kathleen Staples, sees it as a call for stricter laws regarding who can and cannot handle explosives. How about stricter laws before breeding? Why not greater laws for birth control of moronic people? Or that spoons make people fat, (not the food), cars kill people (not drunk drivers) or my personal favorite guns kill (not the idiot pulling the trigger). For fuck sake these are inanimate objects that need to a person to move, fire, drive or in this case light.
Of course good ole mommy isnt blaming the fact that he was drinking. Just we need stricter laws because her son was a fucking moron!
OMFG where do these people come from? It was an **E X P L O S I V E**. WTF did he think was going to happen?
Maybe I should put a gun filled with blanks to my head and see if it kills me.. Uh yes ****

Jon-Erik Hexum – COVER UP “a scene where he is lying in bed, in between takes, he was playing around with a .44 Magnum revolver that was on-set for use as a blank-firing weapon. Shortly after 5:15 p.m. he put the pistol (according to witnesses, it was loaded with three empty cartridges and two blanks) up to his right temple. As he pulled the trigger he smiled, and supposedly said, “Let’s see if I got myself with this one.” He was apparently unaware that at close range, a blank can cause great damage. The explosion drove a quarter-sized piece of his skull far into his brain. The paper wadding of the straight-walled blank cartridge went straight into his temple and forced a bone chip to lodge in his brain.
“He screamed in agony, and then looked kind of amazed (go figure) as he slumped back onto the bed with blood streaming from a severe head wound.”
