The most adventurous selfies




Some selfies go viral because ofwho is in them, like the President, or the Pope...

But other times, it's about the background. Take a look at these guys who took their photos to some exciting new heights...literally. Lee Thompson climbed up to the top of Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio De Janeiro...which stand on top of Corcovado mountain more than 2,300 feet above the city.

And this kid -Kirill Oreshkin who has a knack for snapping pics in places that'll make you nauseous.

Talk about dedication! This guy spent 3 years taking selfies all over the world during a road trip.

This isn't exactly high up there, but it's definitely just as daring. A photographer

captured this photo of a participant at the Great Bull Run taking a video of himself running for his life!

And this is just all kinds of daring. A photographer and his team illegally climbed to the top of Egypt's Great Pyramid of Giza and captured some seriously remarkable views.

It's all about the ego and you keep feeding it by showing these selfies.

totally agree. It's like giving legitimacy to these people who may be influencing others to try the same stunts.

I refuse to use that word "selfie" . It sounds immature and ridiculous.

I guess selfies are ok if you don't have a friend to take a decent photo of you.

That's the problem. These people need to make friends.

The only thing dangerous about climbing to the top of the great pyramids is being in Egypt.

The one and only Arthur Frommer, from "Frommer's Guides" agrees with you and has warned the American public now for a couple of years. Thanks.

My guess is that this publicity for self-worship will lead to more and more cameras that leave witness to the last moment on earth for these egoists.

As Darwin postulated, not a bad thing.
