A tip o' the hat to Matt Sorrell, who blogs at Merlin's Musings, for giving me a heads-up about today's winners.
Two people are hospitalized in Dallas following an explosion at an oil storage facility in East Texas on Tuesday.
. . .
According to Van Zandt County fire marshal Chuck Allen, a man and a woman, both 24, were smoking while sitting on top of a tank used to store a chemical and salt water mixture -- presumably for fracking. The tank they were on exploded.
Of the six tanks at the facility, three caught fire and burned.

Smoking in an 'oil storage facility' . . . which was presumably placarded with 'No Smoking' signs all over the place. These weren't two people - they were two Darwin Awards in human form, looking for a place to award themselves!
