03/17/2008: "Eco-Terrorism On Orcas" I did it to punish the rich white people of Orcas Island and make them pay for the death of the whales and the depletion of the rain forests -Mondragon
Gabriel Thomas Mondragon, 29 years old, who recently arrived from New Mexico, explained to Sheriffs Deputies that in an attempt to make the people on Orcas suffer just like the whales and trees, he attempted to use a tree limbing saw -on a metal pole- to cut through a 69,000 volt power line.

Definitely high on the list for the Darwin awards this year.
He survived, albeit with his clothes on fire. We have no way of knowing if he’s already reproduced.
If he hasn’t- he may find a way to do something lethally stupid in the future, thus establishing eligibility.
How long will it be for this genius to have his lawyer sue the utility for allowing him to be able to break in to destroy the facility and get hurt in the process?
I spent a summer in the ‘80s ferrying between Orcas and Friday Harbor. Spectacular place, the San Juans. I hope they don’t become Moonbat Central.
Truly, this article/post is such a “gem”, it needs a better teaser in the post header. How about something like “Enviro-nut meets Darwin?”... Seriously, I almost didn’t read it and it’s the funniest thing I’ve read this morning so far.
Honorable Mention, anyway ...
Being well informed on the power of high voltage power lines, Mondragon cleverly put on several pair of latex dishwashing gloves to isolate him from electrocution, and proceeded to touch saw to power line.
Mondragon was found laying on his back some distance from the line, his pants had been on fire, where they had burned away from his hips down. His gloves had partially melted, and he had first, second and third degree burns on various parts of his body.
Yeah, I wake up in tears about Luna the whale just about every day.
Since he did not die, he cannot get the Darwin Award.
But they should give him the electric chair, and if they do, I would be willing to put him on the list.
He can get the Darwin award if he’s eliminated his ability to reproduce!
>>Since he did not die, he cannot get the Darwin Award.
BZZZZT! Sorry, thanks for playing.
He is eligible if the event creates a situation such that he cannot reproduce. We need a medical update to fully determine the situation here. It seems quite likely this might be the rare, but not unheard of, case of a non-fatal Darwinian event.
There was a case a few years ago where a guy didn’t have a fuse for some aspect of his truck, and used a .22 round as a field expedient fix. Said round heated due to its resistance in the circuit, went off, and hit him in the privates, taking out one rock. Nearly a non-fatal Darwinian event, but not quite, thanks to the redundancy built in to that particular bodily system
Here’s how you end this BS. Terrorists caught in the act should be tortured to give up the names of their comrades. Once this information is obtained the terrorist is summarily executed in public by a shot to the head. His accomplises are then rounded up for trial.
