In the direct repu­da­tion of my lat­est com­ments on the improve­ment of the species lead­ing to more bor­ing and less funny Dar­win awards, we have the case of the man in New Mex­ico who tried to burn a mouse, only to have the mouse exact his dying revenge by high tail­ing it into the man's house while burn­ing to death and set­ting his drapes on fire, lead­ing to the com­plete destruc­tion of said house.

Details can be found here. Thank good­ness, my real­is­tic (some say pes­simistic) view of mankind is restored and I can write off this year's Dar­win awards as an aberration.
