Watch Your Selfie

In 2015 more people were killed in the act of taking a selfie than by sharks:

Most of world?s 27 selfie-linked deaths happened in India

World selfie deaths eclipsed deaths from shark maulings in 2015, and America experienced its own share of deaths and risky behaviour. A 19-year-old Houston man, Deleon Alonso Smith, fatally shot himself while snapping photos with his gun this past summer.

Interesting read, it could of course be in line with Darwin's views on Natural Selection

Re: Watch Your Selfie

Is it some psychological flaw that encourages people to take pictures of themselves to post on social media sites? It seems as strange as people in restaurants taking pictures of their food - what is that about?
I was watching group of people last week, who seemed to have met for some social occasion. They were all heads-down with their mobiles, ignoring everyone around them for the best part of the time they were together.

Re: Watch Your Selfie

I recently got a selfie stick for my phone.

Now I can hold it far enough away to read text messages.

Re: Watch Your Selfie

I value my phone too much to take selfies but I have got a selfie stick, it makes a great walking stick and folds to pocket size.

Two selfie deaths occured here in Turkey when two youths lay down on the road next to an airport runway at night to get themselves in thr shot as a plane landed.

A lorry ran them over!

Re: Watch Your Selfie

Interesting interview with the actor Billy Bob Thornton on TV yesterday saying how he could see the benefits of a mobile phone for emergencies such as summoning help if you were in an accident but failed to see why people were constantly missing what was happening around them in the moment because they were obsessed with the technology.
As he said: "Wouldnt it by nice to ask a friend as part of a conversation who starred with Frank Sinatra in xyz movie and take two days to remember it instead of someone immediately Googling it as if it really needed immediate solving."

Not moaning in this case, just remarking on the idiocy of both father and son. there is something in this natural selection lark.
