"Florida man killed after asking if bulletproof vest works"

If you think something... do you have to say that something?
A Tampa police report says Joaquin Mendez, 23, put on the vest late Saturday and "wondered aloud whether it still worked."

Police say his cousin, Alexandro Garibaldi, 24, pulled out a gun and responded, "Let's see."

Officers found Mendez outside the house with a gunshot wound in his chest. Mendez died at a hospital.

The guy was still dead.

Lucky for him.

I can, right off the top of my head, so to speak, think of at least one other way to perform that test without risking life or limb.

But I am not Florida Man.

He might be dead, but that doesn't mean that he can't still win the Darwin Award for this year.
