Selfies Are More Deadly Than Sharks

The number of selfie-related deaths has grown to 12 this year, after a man fell down a set of stairs trying to photograph himself in front of the Taj Mahal. Shockingly, shark attacks have only caused eight deaths in 2015, making selfies 1.5 times more deadly than a creature that’s inspired horror movies and strikes fear into many. People have proven that they will go to great lengths to snap the perfect selfie—and parks, museums and popular events have countered by banning selfie sticks. Before throwing yourself in front of a charging bull or climbing atop a moving train, please think: is it really worth the likes?
