Selfie sticks finally crossed the line from obnoxious to deadly.

A guy from England was hiking a mountain in Powys, Wales this weekend when a thunderstorm hit.  He took out his selfie stick to get a sweet picture of himself in the storm but it had some metal in it... so it was basically like he was holding up a lightning rod.

And right on cue, a bolt of lightning hit the selfie stick, traveled through his body, and killed him on the spot.
