Probably because the person holding it had his finger on the trigger and pulled it!

Guns do not discharge by themselves.

Orac's post above accurately sums up the whole story.

I work in an ED department in a small university town. By and large, the kids who come in unconscious, hypothermic and who need vomit or their tongues removed from their throats, are nice kids who aren't used to drinking before coming to university. I can think of several who I'm sure would not have survived without our services.

The overwhelming majority of them are mortified when they wake up and are told what situation they've gotten themselves into. They're very apologetic and slink off home. I mean to audit it at some point, but I'm fairly sure we have few repeat offenders. Occasionally, if they can bear the ignominy of showing their faces again, they bring us chocolates.

Reprehensible? Sure. Deserving of the death penalty? Nope.

People who have accidents under the influence then get combative with all their friends in tow... That's a much bigger problem.

I think that there was a comment on that page to the effect that someone red that she was killed shortly after taking one of those photographs.

I would not be at all surprised.

Angela Nikolau, the risky-selfie girl, is still alive - but I wouldn't be laying down betting money on her having a long life.

Yeah I'd take the stance that I stuck it up my bum cos I was constipated too...saying I did it for sexual gratification would just be too suspect

And how many of the preceding examples died doing dumb things ? Thought this was the Darwin Awards thread.

Agreed It seems to have stupidly become a thread for non-terminal stupidity

Medium died stabbing himself in heart in attempt to prove his immortality

Back to the subject:

A young medium in Chiang Mai died stabbing himself in the heart Monday afternoon in an attempt to prove his immortality.

The 25-year-old medium, Theprit Palee, was performing a folk dance called “Fon Pee Mot,” which is part of an old ceremony practiced by people in the north to honor the ghosts of their ancestors.

Just like every year, Theparit performed a miracle for the spectators, but this time, he ended up plunging the sword he was holding into his heart. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. He has performed this act many times but it is unclear why it went wrong this time.

It is reported that Theparit was worshipped by many people in the community, and every year the miracle would happen, in which the sword broke before it reached his chest, Sanook reported.
