Fair warning... This would have to be one of the worst videos on YouTube!

The guy closest to the camera died and the second guy had very serious injuries.

I know the guy was in bad shape, but then the others were dragging him around too roughly.

FWIW, Darwinís studies had exactly nothing to do with people doing stupid things. Ironically, continuing the habit of using his name in this way on the internet contributes to the general dumbing down of society.

Lug nuts are backwards.
The guy in the POS fake Rolls video got killed in at least 5 different ways. And he did die from momentary bad judgment but nothing to do w Darwin.

The reason I missed the lug nuts on backwards is because itís such a minor thing in the realm of mechanical stupidity. I was looking for something bigger.

Many, many years ago, I worked at a retail parts store and a guy came in with "brand new" pads that had been installed backwards, probably similar to the pic below (but both were backwards). His pad that had been facing the piston had a round cookie cutter type cut through the braking material.
