Dangerous selfies are pretty much inevitable.

7 Dangerous Attention-Grabbing Selfies

These dangerous selfies take self-expression and/or narcissism to extreme new heights.

The selfie has become a global phenomenon, with everyone from the U.S. President to grandmas jumping on the trend. Now that they’re everywhere, however, it takes a little extra to be noticed.

Here are 7 potentially dangerous selfies that, if anything, got people some extra attention:

1. The driving selfie

Apparently this is a trend. Look out for the #doorselfie falling gifs in the near future.

5. Fire extinguisher selfie

Fire extinguishers might not be toxic, but I’m pretty sure this is not a good idea.

6. Laying-down-in-the-road selfie

I want to assume that this is  some remote, quiet road, but..

7. Railroad track selfie

In the same vein as the last one. Basically, just don’t try to take selfies in the path of high-speed vehicles:
