 Another for a Darwin award ? - henry k
Quote from the DT

"Stupid" learner arrested after driving solo to test.
r
......The man had failed his test for the 10th time before police arrived at the test centre in Great Barr, Birmingham at about 11am yesterday (23 October )
" Welcome to the world of stupid" a police officer tweeted from the scene.
" Male turns up at the driving test centre for his driving test.Having driven himself there unsupervised"
The driver of the white Mitsubishi was detained by West Midlands Police on suspicion of taking a vehicle without the owner's consent.

Whilst the subject of this post is indeed stupid, he would have had to kill himself (hitting a tree while driving to the test centre?) and exit the gene pool in order to earn a Darwin Award.

People turning up for tests unaccompanied was not uncommon in my day. Examiners would refuse to take them and call police.

I know I probably shouldn't laugh but that did make me laugh out loud.

Some people eh?

Not just the tow from waves. A sea like that can turn pebbles into projectiles.

OTOH it used to be a common thing to dodge the waves on foreshores like that. Indeed I've stood and done so as a kid 50+ years ago only a handful of yards west of site of that picture - but when there was a bit of a wind/swell not in a storm and spring tide as is running in that vid.

Similar on the Albert/Marine Drive in Scarborough, either on foot or in maternal uncle's car. Again though not in serious storms. Nowadays they close the road if there are major waves crashing onto road.

IIRC somebody got dragged into sea and killed about 25 years ago.
