Ultimate selfie

I see in the AP that came today, a young Russian woman has taken the ultimate selfie. A security man left a 9mm pistol in her office when he went on his hols, so she got it out, and held it to her temple, whilst taking the selfie.

Problem was, she activated the wrong implement. She is now very ill indeed in hospital. One can only hope that she got a good selfie at the critical moment..............

Seems that selfies encourage people to be even more stupid than usual!

Re: Ultimate selfie

I like the bit about the security man leaving the pistol in her office whilst he went on holiday - as if that was a perfectly normal thing to do. I'm glad there weren't loaded pistols laying around everywhere when I was at work; I swear I would have used them many times - both on myself and others!

I must admit, long ago at work, when I was still a pistol shooter, I debated taking my evil %^"&Y$% of a boss out more than once...... Problem was, I couldn't find a source of ice bullets.....

Yet another prime candidate for a Darwin Award. I sometimes wonder how the human race keeps going...
