Don't Try This at Home

9:50 AM -- The 2007 Darwin Awards race has a new front-runner, to judge from this LA Times story:

  • A man who authorities say appeared to be driving while using his laptop computer died Monday when his car crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with a Hummer.

    California Highway Patrol officers found the victim's computer still running and plugged into the cigarette lighter of his 1991 Honda Accord.

Wow. It was still running, post-Hummer. What's the crash-test rating on your laptop?
