Sadly...there is a percentage of the human race that lacks sufficient brains to even have a survival instinct. Darwin awards indeed!

Natural Selection has long been falling behind the workload it should be picking up. Disappointing when there is so much material for it to enjoy.

I had not appriciated that Stupidity had become a marching topic.

Stupid lives matter, it does have a ring about it.

We were in Italy south of Rome in 2018. Cars would regularly swerve when overtaking on the motor way for passengers to film us. But the best was a guy undertaking us who lent out hands of wheel & looking backwards to film us.

It would have been considerate of you to do the overtaking so that they appreciated the car’s full potential and could take photos of your exhaust pipe disappearing into the distance

We had just overtaken him. That spurred him into action as clearly no southern Italian driver looks in the mirror.

Trains and stupidity do seem to figure frequently in that list!

They also cause a lot of delays even if they don't kill themselves.

Too right Bob, although stupidity on the railway is not the preserve of the selfie-taker. I was once on a platform at Paddington when a late middle-aged, bowler-hatted, pin-striped gentleman ran past me, threw his brief case through the open window of a departing high speed train and proceeded to climb through the window despite protestations from platform staff. I saw his feet disappear through the window just before the train reached the signal post at the end of the platform. I think some kindly souls helped pull him through the opening and prevented what could have been a very nasty incident.

I think the list should probably be much longer. A search on the internet will reveal news items regarding a number of deaths that aren't on that list plus a fair number that are suspected to be selfie related. A year or so back a Cinese tourist fell from a wall into Lake Como and drowned while she was taking selfie and I don't find that on the list. Another recent drowning was thought to be the result of an attempt to take a selfie.
