Your moment of Zen

Twenty-eight-year-old David Walker of South Yorkshire, England, "was arguing with a friend at a pub" after drinking 15 pints of beer, Reuters reports. Walker "went home to get his sawed-off shotgun, which he jammed into his trousers":

But as he walked back to the pub, the gun went off, blasting pellets into his testicles. Doctors later removed what remained of his testicles during emergency surgery.

Believe it or not, that wasn't the end of Walker's misfortune. On Tuesday a court sentenced him to five years behind bars for possessing an illegal firearm. Some might sneer at his stupidity, but we'd like to salute him for doing his part, at great personal cost, to improve the gene pool.
