I can't believe how a person's self image is starting to overtake their need for safety.  People are dying- all in the name of getting that perfect shot, and it's only going to get worse, people!

The casualty count is rising, all in the name of the ever-popular selfie.  According to the Huffington Post, a tourist from Japan fell down a staircase at the Taj Mahal this past week   The poor guy was 66 years old. His friend fell as well.

In May a teenager from Romania got zapped while on top of a train in Romania.  (What the hell he was doing up there, I'll never know)

Then there was the genius who tried to take a selfie while driving.  She was trying to post it on Facebook.  She died literally moments after doing that.

I'm sure the craze is going to escalate with the release of the new iPhone 6s and 6s plus. They've upped the quality of the rear facing camera and also put your self portraits into it's own special folder in the Photos App so you can find them easier.

Bottom line?  Stop being so SELFIE absorbed, and watch what you are doing out there - PLEASE.
