A few thoughts about selfie sticks
In August Inquisitr reported about some injuries caused by selfie sticks — it’s not a question that this tool can be a dangerous one if you don’t take care of yourself and others while using it. It’s also without doubt a very helpful item if you are someone who wants the best photos possible even if it’s not a selfie „just” an amazing landscape of a breathtaking scenery.
It’s a fact that many places banned selfie sticks because of the injuries they caused so it’s very important to use yours wisely to avoid any painful experiences. We are not in a position to ban them and we never would do such a thing, so here are some advices you sould consider instead:
- SAFETY COMES FIRST! Never use your selfie stick while you are driving or doing anything else that needs your undivided attention!
- Always be aware of others around you when you are using your selfie stick! It’s not a deathly thing to hit someone with it, but it still can be very painful. Don’t hurt others while taking the selfie of your life!
- Follow the rules even if you really don’t like them — most of the places that banned selfie sticks has a very good reason to do so, don’t try to be the hero of the day by avoiding them. Those rules are for your own safety too!
- Take into consideration all possible angles when having the idea to take a selfie in the lap of mother nature: according to slashgear.com’s article the first incident in which a selfie stick was involved in a „death by lightning” happened just earlier this year in Powys, Mid Wales.
