The Saddest Darwin Award Ever Given

If you go to the The Dar­win Awards web site these awards are described as

Hon­or­ing those who improve the species…by acci­den­tally remov­ing them­selves from it!

Often the events described while tragic in the sense that every need­less death is tragic are tinged with humor because of the sheer stu­pid­ity involved.

By that stan­dard I regret to say a Dar­win might be appro­pri­ate here:

An Ital­ian woman artist who was hitch-​hiking to the Mid­dle East dressed as a bride to pro­mote world peace has been found mur­dered in Turkey.

The naked body of Giusep­pina Pasqualino di Mari­neo, 33, known as Pippa Bacca, was found in bushes near the north­ern city of Gebze on Friday.

She had said she wanted to show that she could put her trust in the kind­ness of local people.

Now as a rule the Darwin’s gen­er­ally don’t involve crimes such as mur­der and there is noth­ing at all com­i­cal about a young woman mur­dered and her naked body left in the bushes.

This dubi­ous endeavor was con­sis­tent with her phi­los­o­phy which was in part:

Hitch­hik­ing is choos­ing to have faith in other human beings, and man, like a small God, rewards those who have faith in him.

Alas man is in no way a God of any size and the self-​delusion nec­es­sary to sug­gest such a thing as we can see is fatal

To my mind a young woman hitch­hik­ing through Europe is a dubi­ous idea at best safety wise, but given what we have seen from Islamists and refugees in Europe I regret to say sheer naiveté involved in this young woman think­ing that she would be safe hitch­hik­ing through Islamic ter­ri­tory is so beyond any degree of ratio­nal san­ity that I can see no choice but to sug­gest her as a prime can­di­date for a Darwin.

Let’s hope the dread­ful sac­ri­fice of this woman’s life dis­suades any oth­ers from such a fool­ish endeavor.

If you go to the The Darwin Awards web site these awards are described as

Honoring those who improve the species…by accidentally removing themselves from it!

Often the events described while tragic in the sense that every needless death is tragic are tinged with humor because of the sheer stupidity involved.

By that standard I regret to say a Darwin might be appropriate here:

An Italian woman artist who was hitch-hiking to the Middle East dressed as a bride to promote world peace has been found murdered in Turkey.

The naked body of Giuseppina Pasqualino di Marineo, 33, known as Pippa Bacca, was found in bushes near the northern city of Gebze on Friday.

She had said she wanted to show that she could put her trust in the kindness of local people.

Now as a rule the Darwin’s generally don’t involve crimes such as murder and there is nothing at all comical about a young woman murdered and her naked body left in the bushes.

This dubious endeavor was consistent with her philosophy which was in part:

Hitchhiking is choosing to have faith in other human beings, and man, like a small God, rewards those who have faith in him.

Alas man is in no way a God of any size and the self-delusion necessary to suggest such a thing as we can see is fatal

To my mind a young woman hitchhiking through Europe is a dubious idea at best safety wise, but given what we have seen from Islamists and refugees in Europe I regret to say sheer naiveté involved in this young woman thinking that she would be safe hitchhiking through Islamic territory is so beyond any degree of rational sanity that I can see no choice but to suggest her as a prime candidate for a Darwin.

Let’s hope the dreadful sacrifice of this woman’s life dissuades any others from such a foolish endeavor.
