Since the existence of social media, people are constantly finding ways to gain as many hearts, likes, and tweets from active internet users. Whether they’re simply bored out of their minds or want to feel completely special or different, people are going beyond their comfort zones to show the world (while getting a much deserved attention) that they can do a lot of things to impress the internet audience. Despite the painful consequences, these folks from different walks of life decided it’s a good idea to take selfies to the extreme — all in the name of impressing their friends and fans. Are they simply nuts? Or are they just plain nuts? It’s on you to decide!
1. Jumping from a Diving Board
Everyone loves a good swim. It’s even better when it involves hopping off from a diving board. But jumping from a very high diving board while taking a selfie? That’s taking it to another level.
2. Bike Riding in Mid-Air
Extreme sports can be fun and dangerous. But it should never involve doing anything else while you’re at it. While this makes for one nice capture, let’s hope the biker landed safely without shattering his bones in the process.
3. Jumping from a Cliff
Jumping off from a cliff takes a lot of guts and trust to make the dive below. It also takes some smarts to understand that doing while taking a selfie could negatively affect one’s (painful) landing.
4. Racing on a Race Track
Riding on race car while speeding around a race track is an adrenaline pumping experience. But running at over 100mph while taking a selfie in a helmet is hardly a convenient idea.
5. Skydiving from a Plane
Taking a plunge from the skies is breathtaking and full of thrills. But shouldn’t it a better idea to concentrate on opening your chute and taking a proper diving position instead of wasting precious seconds for a selfie?
