2022 Darwin Award: Tombstoned Footballer


Honoring Charles Darwin, the father of
evolution, Darwin Awards commemorate those who improve our gene
pool–by removing themselves from it in the most spectacular way possible.

Tombstoned Footballer

2022 Darwin Award Winner
Confirmed True by Darwin

(13 May 2022, Majorca Spain) Dutch football pro Mourad Lamrabatte was
hungry for a vacation prank: leaping off a cliff into the ocean! Thinking “My athletic strength will carry me way out into the beautiful blue waters
30-meters below!” he instructed his kinfolk to film the fatal feat, let out a
triumphant yodel,
and tombstoned
into the abyss.

Keep in mind that 30-meters is high even for experienced cliff divers; that
10-meters is the horizontal distance needed to reach deep water from this
cliff face; and that
calculated velocity on impact is 88 klick (55 mph).

This sick flip became a freefall into the sharp sea rocks below, because
not even a great footballer can leap 10-meters horizonally. Adding insult
to injury, the impact velocity was equal to being hit by a vehicle on the
motorway. The Dutch athlete died in the brine at the age of 31, a goner I’m
sorry to say.

RIP to Mourad, missed by family and fans alike.

But why would you do it? Straight suicide.

Perversely, losing his life _may_ enhance the survival of his
contributions to posterity, aka kids: Research shows a connection
between epigenetic
changes and risk-adverse decisions
, and so the children of a risk-taker
may experience inheritable epigenetic changes to the genes that makes them
risk-adverse, and less likely to follow a parent’s fatal foolishness.

BTW Friday the 13th, spooky coincidence.
Oops corrected: 12 May 2022, not the 13th.
