Sam J Jones, and Lou Ferrigno

You just can not fix stupid people, thus the Darwin Awards was created.....
The latest installment below.
Darwin Awards - Red Evolution
(2017, Russia) A welder is in the evolutionary spotlight today. Vargas (pseudonym) worked for The Enterprise for the Construction, Repair and Maintenance of Highways in Tselinnoe when he noticed how well a fire extinguisher fits into a decommissioned artillery howitzer. Inspired, he stuffed the fire extingusher down the barrel...

True.
But Darwin Awards need to have some basic knowledge in the Russian language as well:)
"as machine translations from Russian to English leave much to be desired."
https://git45.rostrud.ru/news/561199.html
JSC "Tselinnoe venture to build, repair and maintenance of highways," the legal address of Kurgan region, virgin lands with. Tselinnoe Str. Cooperative, 38.
Circumstances: welder made a charge decommissioned artillery howitzers, located on the territory of the organization, a fire extinguisher, with a mixture of carbide and water, in the explosion of a fire extinguisher into the muzzle of the howitzer was fatally shot in the head.
Organized by the investigation, the causes of the accident, the responsible persons who have committed violations of occupational safety requirements are established.
Inspection response measures will be taken according to the results of the investigation.
Who is Vargas?
In the Russian article there are no mentions of any person at all!

Or is it Stefan Löfven our Prime Minister who was a welder in his youth?

The brand expert and Odd Molly founder Per Holknekt jump on the viral train and trademarks the word Covfefe - the new "word" that got the internet to explode yesterday.

Beloved Pet Centipede Gone Missing! Meet The Merry Pranksters

IRVING PARK — Have you seen Pete?

The missing pet centipede has been AWOL for weeks after escaping from his Irving Park yard. His frantic owners are offering a reward for his safe return: a Ziploc bag of Swedish Fish.

But beware before attempting to capture Pete — he shoots lasers from his eyes.

Seriously?

No, not remotely.

Pete and the "missing" flyers — 40 of them in total — are an elaborate inside joke concocted by a pair of Irving Park neighbors who took a thread on a community Facebook page and brought it to real-world life.

"It was an experiment to see how many people connected the dots," said Amelia Graham, who perpetrated the prank along with Amanda Mejia

Why did he try to put his bike over the wire fence and not the gate just a few feet away??????

I thought the same thing.
I think the fence was about 2" lower (or more after they were done), and they didn't notice the insulator on the top wire.

Clyde. You asked me the other day what our national flag symbolize.
I think I have the answer.
Blue is the Sky.
Yellow is the Sun.
