10 Selfies Taken Moments Before Death

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

LoL. I guess that goes to show that anyone who actually takes the time to research selfies and write an article about it, can't count.

Interesting, and tragic. The first pic reminds of a documentary about guys who travel around walking along pylons and hanging off buildings. I can't remember what the craze is called. Anyone know?

There were also several failed attempts.

#6- Shot himself before the photo was taken.
#7- Drowned whilst attempting to take a selfie by a lake.
#8- Was electrocuted whilst climbing on top of a train. No photos taken.
#10- Photo failed due to falling.

It's almost as if cambod posted this without even reading the article.

I thought #3 was apt. Singing along to 'happy' whilst being completely oblivious to the world around you and cheerfully crashing into other road users.

Selfie addiction is the scourge of the 21st century.

What little self-confidence and self-esteem one must have to feel the overwhelming need to obtain others' approval through perfect and sensational depictions of oneself?
