So, they are here. Moral of story: Obey the laws of physics kids! With no further ado - the winners:

Hammer of Doom: A Brazil man tried to disassemble a missile by car, and by sledgehammer...

Copper Kite String: Precautions must be taken to avoid sudden electrocution...

High on Life: Four feet found protruding from a helium advertising balloon...

Score for Goliath: A mythical giant felled by a humble slingshot: a modern speargun versus an underwater leviathan...

Faithful flotation: a pastor who could literally walk on water...

Stubbed out: If a doctor advises that the one thing you must avoid is an open flame, most people ould not strike a match...

Star Wars: Luke vs. Darth Vader, with light sabres made from fluorescent tubes and gasoline...

And if you didn't win this year, you have all of 2007 to make a go for it! Happy new year!
