“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

(No, that’s not me going Super Saiyan, that’s just a lens flare I dropped in for anonymity’s sake.)

Thing is, you’re supposed to take pictures of yourself such that you don’t get hurt.

These 13 people decided to ignore that sage advice.

End result: some of the most unintentionally hilarious Darwin Award candidates of all time.

One of these two definitely enjoyed taking this photo. I have no idea which one.

The Selfie Generation: so solipsistic, it throws basic safety precautions right out the window. Along with itself.
