When will people learn that taking selfies is dangerous.

India’s Amer Fort in Jaipur hit by lightning bolt that kills at least 18 people.

India will give compensation after 18 people were killed while taking storm selfies when a popular tourist attraction was hit by lightning.
But 1 must question the reason behind compensation being given out.

Cheers.

Selfie-takers are not 'smarter than a fifth grader' let alone a bunch of kindergarteners and make frequent Darwin Awards nominee's.

Edit to add re: payment to the deceased families - wasted money.

What are the odds of getting a HOLE-IN-ONE or your golf ball being struck by lightning?

Yes. Even though I work indoors it is hot. The temperature was in the middle 90°f’s.

Now the fun has been short far too short. I must hand over the keys to the next winner Carlos.
They event was to bait a hook and see what was hauled in.

Wrong thread I guess. There's no winners in this thread.
This is not the TLPTPHW thread. :-)

D'oh! Misplaced chair shuts down nuclear plant in Taiwan
Surprisingly a real-life scenario and not a plotline from The Simpsons

An investigation by the Association for Natural Energy pinpointed the cause: misplaced furniture. Staff working in the control room moved the chair to clean and, in the process, knocked the acrylic protective cover of a main steam isolation valve switch causing it to tilt, shift, and close, setting off a chain reaction that tripped the main steam turbine and stopped the reactor.

Scam-baiting YouTube channel Tech Support Scams taken offline by tech support scam
'It was pretty convincing until the very end,' says host Jim Browning

"So to prove that anyone can be scammed," Browning announced via Twitter following the attack, "I was convinced to delete my YouTube channel because I was convinced I was talking [to YouTube] support. I never lost control of the channel, but the sneaky s**t managed to get me to delete the channel. Hope to recover soon."

Good one thanks.

That's equally apt for the COVID pandemic as much as for our industrious pollution driven Global Warming...
