Re: Selfies are dangerous

But wasn't Darwin's theory about evolution, how does a selfie tally with taking photos of oneself in different dangerous situations?  https://www.darwins-theory-of-evolution.com/

 

Or do you mean Natural selection for herding?

@dcontesti and @rslade are referring to the Darwin Awards, which recognize individuals who through their own actions have contributed to human evolution by removing themselves from the gene pool via death or sterilization (ref).

Re: Selfies are dangerous

The Darwin Awards were finished mentioned in about 1985 (at least around then) in Usenet groups to refer folks who effectively eliminated themselves from the gene pool by doing "stupid" things.  Sorry for the confusion......I guess us old folk should clarify things.

I've herd of that.

If people are too stupid to realize that taking selfies in dangerous places is a
stupidly dangerous thing to do (we may be getting into Krueger-Dunning territory
as well) then they might be removing themsleves from the gene pool.

Tally ho!
