    ITEM#: 2505184

    A graduate of UC Berkeley with a degree in molecular biology, Wendy Northcutt began collecting the stories that make up the Darwin Awards in 1993. Her award-winning Web site www.DarwinAwards.com is one of the most popular humor pages on the Web.The Darwin Awards have been profiled in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal,Entertainment Weekly, and on NPR’s All Things Considered. Wendy is the author of the international bestsellersThe Darwin Awards: Evolution in Action, The Darwin Awards 2: Unnatural Selection, andThe Darwin Awards 3: Survival of the Fittest.
    With over a quarter million copies in print and six months on The New York Times bestseller list,The Darwin Awards shows that readers crave humor. And what better place to find it than in the stories of those human beings who improve the gene pool by removing themselves from it in a sublimely idiotic fashion.

    Marvel at the thief who tries to steal live electrical wires. Gape at the lawnchair jockey who floats to a height of 16,000 feet suspended by helium balloons. And learn from the man who peers into a gasoline can using a cigarette lighter. All contend for Darwin Awards when their choices culminate in magnificent misadventures.

    These tales of trial and awe-inspiring error-verified by the author and endorsed by website readers-illustrate the ongoing saga of survival of the fittest in all its selective glory.The Darwin Awards vividly portrays the finest examples of evolution in action, and shows us just how uncommon common sense can be.
