Selfie sticks now banned alongside weapons

Last month I shared with you the welcome news that museums around the world slowly began to ban selfie sticks for fear that paintings and artifacts might be damaged or destroyed by self-absorbed selfie takers.

Today I am happy to share with you the welcome news that festivals across the United States of America are also beginning to ban selfie sticks for fear of injury to other human beings of whom the ego-centric selfie takers fail to take notice:
In anticipation of their festival which stars [sic] April 10th, Coachella's organizers have announced that "Selfie sticks / Narcissists" are now a prohibited item, along with chains, explosives, and knives. Lollapalooza, a huge summer fest that takes place in Grant Park, Chicago, has also issued a warning to any revellers looking to bring their selfie sticks this year [more].
This is certainly a step in the right direction.
