"The two top music festivals in the United States, Coachella and Lollapalooza, are telling their visitors to leave their selfie sticks and narcissism at home.
Both events, which take place in California and Chicago, have updated their policies to ban the sticks.
Coachella has stated that all selfie sticks/narcissistics have been prohibited and Lollapalooza only allows cameras without equipment attachments such as selfie sticks, tripods and monopods."
A selfie stick is a monopod used to take selfie photographs by positioning a smartphone or camera beyond the normal range of the arm. The metal sticks are typically extensible, with a handle on one end and an adjustable clamp on the other end to hold a phone in place. Some have remote or Bluetooth controls, letting the user decide when to take the picture, and models designed for cameras have a mirror behind the view screen so that the shot can be lined up.
Narcissists who take selfies should be ostracized by polite society, and losers who use a selfie stick should be hoisted by their own petard, that is to say they should be impaled by their selfie sticks.
I didn`t even know there was such an abomination as a selfie stick "; we are much closer to the End of the World than I had imagined.
Thank goodness that Coachella and Lollapalooza have banned selfie sticks; I will boycott any electronic store or department store that sells these demonic devices.
