Was it an iPhone? 'Cause you know, those things are expensive.
 
2009-11-17 10:44:34 AM
I liked that movie.
 
2009-11-17 10:44:36 AM
He needed to Twitter about the fire.
 
2009-11-17 10:45:03 AM
But it was ringing.

The ring tone was a song by The Talking Heads

Someone who loves thier cell phone enough to go into a burning building for it is obviously the kind of ass hat that talks on it when driving.

So Good riddance.
 
2009-11-17 10:45:55 AM
But because the cordless home phone he carried out was not working, Lagree dashed back into the dangerous home to grab his mobile phone, witnesses and the sources said.

Did he have to order a pizza or something?

Hey, those rollover minutes are valuable!
 
2009-11-17 10:47:26 AM
Can you hear me now?

I guess not.
 
2009-11-17 10:47:32 AM
It's not Darwin if he's already procreated.
 
2009-11-17 10:48:18 AM
He was 75 years-old. It wasn't Darwin. It was Final Destination.

WTF Indeed: He needed to Twitter about the fire.

"Saved the fam and came back 4 iphone, lulz"

"Cant wait 2 tell ppl I ran into a burnin house 4 mah phone"

"oh noes stair case colapsed, tryin the fire escape"

"fell thru floors 2 basement, ass and head hurt"

"omfg fire is hot and wtf is up with smoke"
 
2009-11-17 10:50:52 AM
iPwn'd.
 
2009-11-17 10:51:10 AM
He was trying to save all of his contacts. There were a lot of people in that cell phone.
 
2009-11-17 10:52:57 AM
Is there a Darwin App?
 
2009-11-17 10:53:13 AM
Must of been a Droid...I hear they are hot!
 
2009-11-17 10:55:12 AM
Darwin needs to strike before these people reproduce.
 
2009-11-17 10:56:52 AM
My wife is so attached to her Blackberry, it wouldn't surprise me if she went in after it.
/Where U at?

"He was a great guy and he was so nice," said Raymond Scretchen, 45, who is married to the dead man's niece. "He was so sweet."

There has to be a better way of putting that...
 
2009-11-17 11:04:17 AM
He probably wanted to avoid the $350 early termination fee.
 
2009-11-17 11:06:22 AM
Running back in to save your family's Playstation game on running into burning buildings?

Darwin Hero.

TFA: A FDNY spokesman urged people to stay out of burning buildings until firefighters have secured the dangerous structures.

Fire Capt. Obvious was on the scene?
 
2009-11-17 11:19:15 AM
Stay gold, Ponyboy.
 
2009-11-17 11:20:36 AM
Mark Dinning approves.
 
2009-11-17 11:21:08 AM
From what I heard he had a shiat load of unused minutes on the phone. He didn't have a choice.....his wife would have killed him anyway.

"If you ever drop your keys in lava..."

Also applies to cell phone.

(He should have slept with it by him.)

Not obvious enough
 
2009-11-17 11:41:34 AM
Well, you get a two year contract with those things. A commitment to each other. It's not something you easily walk away from.
 
2009-11-17 11:48:56 AM
C'mon, they don't make them like they used to.
 
2009-11-17 11:51:57 AM
He probably declined the replacement insurance.
 
2009-11-17 11:58:42 AM
"OK smoke is coming out."
 
2009-11-17 11:59:35 AM
Laughing at other people's misfortune:? Douchebag.

You magnificent bastard!

Old school... went from "there's an app for that" to "What do you want on YOUR Tombstone?".
 
2009-11-17 12:06:05 PM
Note to self: Get phone first. Family has legs.
 
2009-11-17 12:09:10 PM
My Droid would have saved me from the fire. Droid does.

2009-11-17 12:15:15 PM
Well that's a better fate than paying the replacement fee.

What a gentleman. Running back into an inferno to fetch a cell phone was obviously a better option than disturbing the neighbors in the middle of the night.

It's called being polite. You shouldn't pester people with something as trivial as needing to use their phone because your house is burning to the ground. It's not their problem.
 
2009-11-17 01:10:10 PM
Fark needs a darwin tag.
 
2009-11-17 01:27:52 PM
Doesn't sound like he had smoke detectors either.
 
2009-11-17 01:30:13 PM
The Verizon rep told him what the replacement would cost.

2009-11-17 04:45:27 PM
I'd have bet the victim was a woman. Whoops.

It's "Talking Heads", not The Talking Heads.
