The author comments on Australia and suggested that we do not rely on signage to prevent stupid people from meeting their well earned demise. Unfortunately this is not quite correct. Our Government is moving down the path of the nanny-state and it is becoming far more common to see tax payer funded signage that tells morons not to do the obviously stupid things that would spare the rest of us from their continued stupidity. Our new OH&S laws to be introduced in Jan 2012 are a perfect example.

I found it to be casually entertaining. I would akin it to an average author doing a reading at a bookstore. So if interested in the content its nice to "get to know" the author. I also perused the web page while watching the video and found the video more captivating. The web page is antiquated and the stories I did find weren't very entertaining.

She really is utterly useless.

This had the potential to be very interesting or at least humorous, but I thought it failed to be either. The presentation is really nothing more than a disjointed smattering of stories.

What a cheap and amateurish presentation. She should have had someone else do it. I had very high expectation and was so disapointed, I will stick to the website and skip the public appearances.....

I loved the presentation, I have been a fan of the awards since almost the beginning, and I recently saw the movie on cable, it was interesting and I have recommended it to several friends with whom I have discussed Darwin awards in the past. I did think that Wired Magazine had found the true origin of the JATO rocket car story several years ago.
