Yes...that is right......this years Darwin award goes to this guy. Posing for a selfie with a gun to his head and accidentally kills himself. Sorry, but I really have no sympathy for stupidity this blatant.



It may seem obvious, but if you really must take a gun selfie, it’s probably best you point the barrel away from your head.

Oscar Otero Aguilar unfortunately learned the hard way, accidentally killing himself while posing for a selfie with a .38 pointing toward – that’s right – his head.

The incident happened last weekend just north of Mexico City. Reports suggest the 21-year-old veterinarian had been partying with friends, and had grabbed his smartphone – and gun – for a selfie that he intended to post on Facebook.

Little early yet for the winner, but I'm guessing he is definitely in first place.

I won't give my opinion on selfies, but seriously, possibly alcohol, gun and selfie. He definitely should not have had a gun.

I suppose it one thing to rub your belly and pat your head, its quite another to snap a picture and NOT pull the trigger. Silly rabbit.

Why do I have a feeling that his last words were...

"Bueno cada uno, mira esto!"

"Hey every one, watch this!" (Had to use Google translate as my Spanish is extremely rusty at the moment...ya don't use it, ya lose it)

Totally concur. Tragedy, etc but very hard to feel any sympathy at all....except for his family. But as to him, is it wrong of me to be slightly glad there is one less numpty around to potentially snag one of my daughters in future? Not glad he is dead but glad there is one less idiot about......

Now we have proof that selfies can kill. Let's put all our efforts into stopping this violent trend.

This goes to show you folks. Guns don't kill people. Selfies do.

But in all seriousness, you are pointing a loaded gun with the safety off right at your head? WTF was this guy thinking!

this thread made me think about this.




On October 12, 1984, the cast and crew of Cover Up were filming the seventh episode of the series, "Golden Opportunity", on Stage 17 of the 20th Century Fox lot. One of the scenes filmed that day called for Hexum's character to load blanks into a .44 Magnum handgun. When the scene did not play as the director wanted it to play in the master shot, there was a delay in filming. Hexum became restless and impatient during the delay and began playing around to lighten the mood. Apparently, he had unloaded all but one (blank) round, spun it, and in what would appear to be a game of Russian roulette, at 5:15 p.m., he put the revolver to his right temple and pulled the trigger.
Jon-Erik Hexum


i say he gets a vote.

Ha...had not thought about that. Reflexively pulling the trigger with the opposite hand because the other hand is snapping a pic. This has Darwin winner all over it.

Action photo's on a smart phone never turn out quite right, usually have to try a few times for the right shot

First two rules of firearm safety:

A gun is always loaded.

Never point a gun at anything you aren't willing to destroy.

I'd teach him that but, I see he learned his lesson.
