You just can't legislate it or cure it.

Lucky that boat didn't take his head off.

The inventor of the selfie stick is making a fortune on peoples vanity.

I've never understood the whole 'selfie' thing anyway but maybe he'll learn to keep his eyes on the road ..... wonder what the insurance agent had to say

He just smiled and reached for his big rubber stamp that reads: REJECTED.

To me those selfy sticks appeal to a persons vanity on Facebook you see a good deal of that kind of thing either with a selfy stick or some other vanity shot. Most of those I tell Facebook I don't want to see. I think the selfy stick is kind of stupid and has never appealed to me.

Remember cameras with timers and before that a long hose on the rubber bulb for the shutter? They just didn't call them selfies and you had to invite the in-laws and friends to dinner and show them once you had them trapped.

How about using gun powder as the flash and getting the shutter timing just right with the timing of the exploding powder.

Actually it was magnesium rather than gunpowder. But timing was essential, for sure.
