Is there such a thing as safe sex?? Here's a late entry for the Darwin Awards an award generally given out posthumously for the most stupid way to die - if there is such a thing.
A pre-med student from the University of Arizona was looking to score big with his date on a Friday night. Determined to put the girl in the mood, he drove her up to a spot on Mount Lemmon which overlooked the city of Tucson. They walked to an open knoll where they could see the city lights.
