Today, I went on a date with my boyfriend to our local park, and I playfully climbed into one of the baby swings. I planned on having him push me, not getting stuck and having to be cut free from the seat while he laughed. FML

Of course it could be worse. It could always be worse, but that doesn't change that this situation was unfortunate. One could say "Today, both my parents died. FML" and you could still answer "it could be worse you could have cancer and and and"

That is why I specifically said "NOMINATION" for an award, not that she had already won it, genius. I don't think it's too far off to extrapolate that someone dumb enough to get themselves stuck in a baby swing would also eventually be dumb enough to cause their own death through their stupidity.

Darwin Award nominees are survivors of stupid near-death experiences. Like those above said, getting stuck in a swing is hardly dangerous at all, and practically every adult/teen has at least TRIED to squeeze themselves into a swing before. Besides, getting stuck in a swing is far from a near-death experience.

I thought a Darwin award could also be given to someone who didn't necessarily died in an oblivious incident but could have injured them in a way that they were no longer able to reproduce, again, enhancing the gene pool, but I could be wrong.

They are, #53, but it's hard to think of an injury that would render a woman incapable of reproducing without rendering her dead. However, it's quite possible--although not very common--for a man to achieve the Living Darwin. I've read the books, what can I say?

As for you, OP, what were you thinking? If you're old enough to be on the FML site, you're clearly too big to fit into one of those things. Were there not regular-sized swings in the park?
