People do a lot of stupid things to try and achieve "fame." Here's an instance where a teenage girl was convinced by her boyfriend to shoot him so he could block the bullet with a book. Just dumb.. and fatal for him. The Darwin Awards are given, posthumously, to people who do dumb things that result in the end of their lives. This guy was a winner, sadly.
Here's the story:
A 19-year-old aspiring YouTube star’s boyfriend is dead after she shot him in the chest in a video stunt gone wrong (to add to their YouTube fame) , according to a criminal complaint filed on Wednesday.

Instead he's now dead. Monalisa Perez, 19, who shot Pedro Ruiz from about a foot away, was charged with second-degree manslaughter, according to court documents. She faces up to 10 years in prison and/or a fine of $20,000.
