I hate everything about selfies. I hate when people send selfies over Snapchat with some stupid caption like “Do you like guacamole?” and I hate when my Facebook newsfeed is bloated out the asshole with them. Why don’t you just text me about guac? What makes you think all of Facebook wants to see a giant close-up of your face 24/7? As if those aren’t good enough reasons not to get trapped in the selfie craze, there’s always the possibility that you’re dumb enough to accidentally kill yourself while taking one. Via Daily Mail,
“A Mexican man died after the gun he was taking a selfie with killed him last weekend.
The victim was identified by local media as 21-year-old Oscar Otero Aguilar.
Before the incident, Otero Aguilar had been drinking with two of his friends in northern Mexico City, Proceso said.
Authorities called in said Otero Aguilar was shot in the head, Proceso reported.
‘I heard a gunshot, and then I heard somebody screaming and realized somebody had been hurt. I called the police straight away and when they arrived they found that he was still alive,’ neighbor Manfredo Paez Paez said, according to the Daily Mirror…
The Ministry of Public Security told Proceso that Otero Aguilar’s death appeared to be an accident.
The selfie was meant to go on Facebook, the Ministry said.”
Don’t drink and selfie, guys.
