Yes, People Really ARE This F–king Stupid

What’s 150% MORE likely to kill you than sharks?

“Selfies”! Selfies with sharks is likely up there too.

The latest selfie fatality saw a 66-year-old Japanese tourist die after falling down stairs while attempting to take a photo at the Taj Mahal.

Incidents involving the phenomena are now at a toll of twelve this year, overtaking the eight deaths caused by shark attacks in 2015.

Earlier this year the Russian government launched a campaign to make people understand the perils of snapping selfies in dangerous situations.

An illustrated booklet was issued by the advisors, warning its citizens of dangerous scenarios, including snapping a photo while halfway up an electricity pylon, standing in front of an oncoming train, or while in the company of a wild animal [ED – or while participating in any public anti-Putin demonstration].

According to the ministry, Police officers will also hold extensive selfie-safety lessons at schools.

Official Yelena Alekseyeva made a statement when the leaflet was released and said: “Our booklet reminds you of how to take a safe selfie, so it is not the last one you will ever take.”

    Here we have a selfie of a shark with his lunch…a tree-hugger, I guess.

      Maybe the shark is a vegetarian and will not actually eat the guy, but find some other “green” use for him – organic fertilizer for his seaweed garden or something.

    We need a booklet that explains how to deal with Muslims without having the go jihadi for no reason.

    The practice of taking selfies does serve the function of improving the gene pool at least.
