Man who was struck and killed by lightning in Brecon Beacons 'was carrying a selfie stick'

Up a mountain, in a lightening storm with a metal stick............................I tried not to laugh.

I've saw a few Darwin Awards noms this week.

The guy who jumped into a pond shouting "f**k alligators" because of the signs saying "No swimming - Alligators" being eaten by an alligator was a favourite

I knew a guy who got struck by lightning carrying parts of an exercise bike up onto a remote hill up in Assynt. Same guy also got 'hit' by lightning whilst using an emergency phoneline 100ft under the ground in the Alps (the box on the surface got hit with the current travelling down the wire through to the side of his face). Lung cancer got him in the end.

The bike came in really handy for a cave dig though: http://youtu.be/DDkBt6i_tck?t=95

This bright spark? Apparently his moron mates subsequently shot and killed the alligator.

To be fair, the sign was unclear:

A mere comma could have saved his life.

hats off to this guy for surviving stadium gigs all these years- with that shiny suit and long mike stand he might easily have become a lightning Rod....

Pretty funny seeing Luddites seethe at them tbf

The invention of a telescopic stick to take photos outside the range of your arm is truly the pinnacle of human achievement after all.
