With its promise of instant notoriety, the selfie is the method par excellence for promoting brand “me”. Yet while the following daredevils deserve applause for their staggering bravado, remember this: in 2015 selfies were to blame for more deaths than shark attacks. Do not try this at home!

Vertigo sufferers, look away now! Known as the “Russian Spider-Man,” Kirill Oreshkin is famous for his fearless mastery of high places. Case in point right here. With the daredevil poised at the top of Moscow’s Red Gate Building – a Stalinist architectural wonder spanning 24 floors – this relaxed and confident selfie was snapped 436 feet up in the air. Terrifyingly, no safety equipment was used.
