Ahh yes, this bit of forum language control has caught me out before. I never seem to remember it though, and I also didn't re-read that post.

To answer sir Tig's horrendous slur on my character directly... Guilty as charged your honour ;)

Nominations require you to be dead. As you are posting, you are probably alive, unless they have the internet in hell (or the other place), so no you can not be nominated for the Darwin award.

You do get this months, NEAR MISS award, unless you ended up in hospital, in which case you have my sympathy and probably an infection that will lie dormant for years before killing you and all the people you have close contact with. Thus earning you a nomination.

I've never won an award.

I'm quite disappointed. :'(

Talking of Darwin, a couple in the US filmed themselves passing the time in a Tesla whilst in autopilot mode...

(Un) Fortunately they didn't qualify either as breeding was involved...

On the upside, if they use the Tesla autopilot like that, they won't be around for too long :)
