Rants, Raves, & Random Thoughts

Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

It’s time for another installment of The Darwin Awards.

(27 December 2008, Serbia) 23-year-old Strahinja Raseta was wanted by Croatian police for murder, as well as for a spectacular robbery of a central post office. He fled to Serbia to evade the law.

But even bad guys have friends. Raseta had a friend, and his friend had lent him E15,000. Some loans can never be repaid. This was such a loan. Finding himself unable to earn or steal the funds needed to reimburse his friend, Raseta attempted to end the matter in another way--by murdering the lender!

He crawled under his creditor's Jeep and planted an explosive. However, the muffler was still hot, and the heat set off the explosive while Raseta was beneath the vehicle. He died in hospital the next day in the Serbian capital city of Belgrade, illustrating the truth of the Shakespearean adage, "Neither a borrower nor a lender be."

Neither a borrower nor a lender be;
For loan oft loses both itself and friend.
Shakespeare (Lord Polonius, in Hamlet)

this seems to be an example of the universe meting out its own justice all while ridding the gene pool of some faulty dna.
