Evolution in action.

Some people are Darwin Awards in the making. As a native of Wales I know what our weather is like, in a word shitty.

Rain, sleet, hail and snow and occasionally we get teased by a big yellow thing that has the window lickers in Merthyr Tydfil building a wicker man to their pagan Gods.

But get this for stupidity:

Mountain rescue teams say two pairs of walkers are lucky to be alive, after trying to climb Snowdon in treacherous weather in tracksuits and trainers.
Two men from Warrington, Cheshire slipped 200ft (61m) down a snow face before being located by an RAF crew.
Rescuers had been involved in reaching two students from London who became tired on the mountain on Tuesday.
Rescue teams said it was "utterly unnecessary" and they were horrified both pairs were so badly-equipped.

Its evolution in action, leave them there as a lesson to others. Odds on these Darwin Award nominees will find some other way to remove themselves from the gene pool.

Mind they were students, no doubt dim witted types filling one of the Polyversities taking an oh so important "media studies" course...

If only people could be charged with the offence of "wasting time and funds by being a complete and utter stupid twat", perhaps there might be less of this shit!

Leave them to freeze, charge the fuckers the full cost of getting the rescue teams out to save their arses if you must see them rescued.

Maybe we could get an MP to bring in a bill to charge people with gross stupidity, although that would cover most MP's...

I think that Fido has covered the situation more than adequately, but personally I'd just leave them to die. Why put other lives at risk to rescue a pair of twats?

Cato maybe the best idea would be when they called for help, keep them on hold for a while then tell them that shit happens.

That might be rubbing salt in the wounds...but it seems like a plan.

Can't we just deport the idiots back to England?

Used to do a lot of hill and mountain walking in my twenties, usually around Fort william just before Easter.
There were not many people about but we would sometimes come across such ill-prapared people and would give them a wide berth so as not to become involved should they come to grief.
Just once did we make it our business to remonstrate with a couple of trackie wearing numbties because they had very young children in tow. We told them to f*ck off back down the mountain in no uncertain terms.

Merry Christmas Fido and Best Wishes for blogging in the New Year.

Your comment about the people of Merthyr Tydfil is an insult to window-lickers everywhere... ;-)
