Not amusing but demonstrates how fucking stupid some people are..

Woman shots boyfriend with a Desert Eagle pistol as they try to promote their Youtube channel.

Monalisa Perez, 19, was booked into county jail after shooting at Pedro Ruiz as he held a book to his chest, believing it would stop the bullet. The couple's three-year-old child and nearly 30 onlookers watched as she fired the fatal bullet into his chest. Ruiz's aunt said they did it to increase their social media following.

Here's the same gun blasting straight through body armour


I assume The Darwin Awards are still a thing?

Lol, what book in this universe did they think would be thick enough to stop a shot from a desert eagle? Complete set of Encyclopedia Brittanica possibly. #-o
How ppl let their social media presence control their lives is beyond me tbh, I can't even be arsed with a facebook account.

Even if you did think a book would stop a bullet, why the hell would you not test your theory off-camera before trying it?

It would be Darwin Award worthy, but that's an award for removing yourself from the gene pool. He's leaving behind one child and a pregnant girlfriend.

Complete idiocy and further proof that open gun laws are a bad idea.

And if that doesn't do it for you, how about http://news.sky.com/story/man-stuck-in-cash-machine-feeds-help-notes-through-receipt-slot-10947956

With the second, I couldn't help finding the cop being asked "How he heard the trapped guy" as the funniest bit.

Re the first one, not to be unkind - and I am fully aware of being in glass houses territory here - but look at the size of her! You'd have to be Geoff Capes to pull that one off...

That police officer is so happy about the poor guy getting stuck. Seems it really made his day.
