ULTIMATE Level of Pathetic

Darwin Awards

Some of you who have been following my blog for some time know that I believe there are levels of pathetic. 

The lower levels are things like seeing gum on the ground and stepping in it on purpose or turning onto a one way going the wrong way.  The higher levels are things like stealing from the elderly, becoming a politician or trying to take advantage of children. 

Personally, I’ve never thought that there was a level of pathetic any higher than those things I just listed…

That was….until today. 

Today, I found out that there is an Ultimate level of pathetic, and that Ultimate level of Pathetic is reserved for those who are so dumb that they just don’t fit on the regular scale.  

The following story comes to us from Gridley, California in the United States, and if not for the tragic ending to this story, it would be quite hilarious.   

Based on eye witness accounts, on Memorial Day (May 25, 2015) a  man who was celebrating his 21st birthday with some friends drowned while attempting to swim across a pond while holding a ten pound rock.  

Witnesses told officials that he was holding the large rock while trying to swim across the pond.

He disappeared in the water and did not emerge…




If you don’t think this is a true story, read it for yourself:  Man Drowns in Lake


And THAT, Ladies and Gentlemen, is how I discovered the Ultimate Level of Pathetic. 

Pathetic is as pathetic does.
