Darwin Awards: Why Not To Drive Holding A Selfie Stick

September 18, 2015


This is a video of a guy in a Jeep filming himself drive with a selfie stick. He almost gets impaled by that canoe in the truck in front of him. Man almost dies with selfie stick in his hand -- those might just be the saddest words anybody's ever written. Could you imagine having to explain to this guy's family how he died? You'd have to lie and say he got eaten by alligators trying to rescue a baby.

Hit the jump for the video, then don't be a jackass.

    10 years ago ' the government is spying on us, there are cameras all over, your picture is taken 20 times per day'

    Today, I had to take my picture 20 times before lunch, post it them facebook with a gps tag accurate with in 9 feet, said exactly what I was doing and where I was going and tagged everyone near me.

    "those might just be the MOST SATISFYING words anybody's ever written..."

    I think the sad part is the word "almost".

    Well, that ruined the day of canoeing!

    More car than brains, very common.

    A quick rollover will fix that. Unless the guy has more than one vehicle.

    Driving on a back road with a selfie stick out the window isn't so much the problem as is driving in a direction you are not looking. Glad the canoe didn't come through the window and impale him!

    I see no problems here. Selfie stick users will eventually die out due to evolutionary pressures. The actual catch here is in believing selfie sticks are an aid for people to take pictures of themselves, when in fact they are an aid to everyone else in weeding those kind of people out of the general population.

    Next up. Selfie guns that have an unnatural tendency to shoot their owners.
