Digital Trends’ top 5 viral videos of the week, December 10, 2010

We are back with a new selection of videos to tickle your fancy. These videos are not all from this week, but they all made us laugh or caused our jaws to drop recently. Enjoy! A collection of some of the more insane sports tricks around Each week we tend to add a video or two of people showing off their sporting acumen.

This week we are doing something a bit different and introducing a theme of sorts. Spurred on by the sight of the first video set in Russia, it inspired us to compile a few of our favorite clips of people that defy the notion of evolution by their sheer existence. As a result, many of these videos are older than usual, but hopefully still entertaining. Enjoy!

In Russia, you don’t choose to evolve, evolution chooses to evolve you!

While typically we use a highly complex system of algorithms to choose the order of the videos that we like to call “alphabetical”, but in this case, this video is what kicked off our Darwin Awards edition and deserves to be number 1. It really is just better seen than explained, so check it out. If we were a betting website, we would probably put the odds of anyone in this group surviving long enough to procreate at around 20:1. After you watch the video, feel free to post your best comments below, and the best comment wins the respect of all the other posters! Isn’t that neat?

Bike Cop fail

The police have a hard job, and it is generally thankless. They exist to protect us, and yet they are arguably the most criticized organization that is part of our civil infrastructure. Sometimes that criticism is justified sometimes it is not.  The point is, it is a tough job.  That doesn’t mean they are excused when they do stupid, stupid stuff.

French idjits

It is somewhat comforting to know that this list of people doing suicidal things on camera isn’t just limited to the American shores. Joining Russia on the international list of countries that contain people doing things that will justifiably end their procreation dreams is France.

Hand model is one of the most interesting people- terrible, but interesting

This lady is one of the top hand models in the world. She might also be clinically insane. Odds of her reproducing are low considering that beautiful twinkle of insanity in her eyes.

People live in Newfoundland?

You know how people always try to one up one another about the weather? Like, “I used to walk to five miles in the snow, uphill, both ways”? Well, in Newfoundland the winter is so cold, the damn ocean freezes as the waves hit the shore! Like magic! (I look forward to your corrections, internet community) With weather that cold, it is hard to imagine that anyone could survive long enough to evolve.
