Paragliders and other adrenaline junkies can sometimes do two mistakes when they go off on their adventures. First, they spend a lot of time taking selfie, thus they get so busy documenting the experience and neglect the chance to simply enjoy it.
The second mistake, of course, is buying a substandard selfie stick. I mean, come on! If you already decided that you’ll spend the whole time taking selfies, then you might as well be smart about it, right? Its really a good idea to invest in good gear!
Or you just might suffer the same fate as this poor paraglider.
Apparently, it all started okay. It was a great, sunny day and it was the perfect weather to go paragliding and enjoy the view.
The man, however, wanted to take a selfie.
He was successful in taking his selfie video for a few seconds. He took it from many angles, no doubt smiling from ear to ear.
Unfortunately, he wasn’t satisfied.
He brought the phone back and started fidgeting with the already frail looking selfie stick. Looking at the video below, it is impossible not to feel at the edge of your seat.
And then gravity took over.
The bracket of the selfie stick suddenly gave way, resulting to the phone toppling into the side of his leg and into the ground. Just imagine how high this man’s heart jumped!
Aaaw, that poor phone.
After watching the footage, I’m actually wishing for two things now.
I wish no one was hit by the phone when it dropped on the ground. Plus I wish that he was taking a livestream and the phone’s POV video would surface any day now. That would be really interesting to see, right?
You win, gravity.
Well, we should all let this serve as a lesson about taking selfies while paragliding and, of course, buying high quality selfie sticks.

Poor 3-Year-Old Gets Both Legs Amputated After Being Badly A****d By His Evil Parents
“It was absolutely heartbreaking, I don’t think we’ve cried so many tears,” his adoptive mother said.
Despite his young age, it’s really hard to imagine the kind of tragedy 3-year-old boy Tony Smith had to go through because of his abusive parents. In fact, the little child had to have both of his legs amputated.
In a This Morning feature, we learn that Tony was merely 41 days old when he was violently swung around by his ankles. It resulted to him having a fracture as well as sepsis and multiple organ failure. He was rushed to a hospital and doctors thought he didn’t have a big chance of surviving.
Since he was little, Tony Smith has been physically abused by his parents.
When he was 4 months, Tony was entrusted to Paula and Mark Hogell to keep him away from Tony Smith and Jody Simpson, his birth parents, although they were still permitted to visit him in the hospital....

Saudi Arabia Fashion Show Uses Drones Instead of Models, Looks Like A Horror Movie Scene
Instead of being impressed, people ended up criticizing the bizarre show.
While innovation is good, it does not always fall in the good graces of the public. Case in point is the recent fashion show held in Saudi Arabia, wherein drones replaced traditional models walking down the ramp. Instead of wowing the audience though, the show was criticized for having left an impression that ghosts were modeling the fashion creations.
Far from the usual ones that feature statuesque and almost anorexic-looking women or men with towering heights and well-chiseled bodies, the recent fashion show in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia was devoid of any model walking down the ramps and sashaying fashion creations. After all, the organizers of the show wanted to achieve something: Be different through innovation and to be appropriate for the holy month of Ramadan. Hence, instead of models, the show employed the use of drones to showcase the fashion goods.
The organizers of the fashion event spent much time and effort in planning the show.
Ali Nabil Akbar, one of the organizers of the event said:...
