For reasons that remain unclear, a teenager named Jared Michael recently attempted to take a selfie in front of an oncoming train. Despite being a "safe distance" from the train, things didn't go exactly as Michael expected.

As you can see in the video, the train's engineer thought the close-to-a-speeding-train picture was bad idea (it is), so he yelled and then kicked Michael directly in the head.

"Wow that guy just kicked me in the head!" Michael says in the video. "I think I got that on film!"

Let this be a lesson for teens everywhere.
