When I most feel the urge of running to one of those people and place their stick where the sun seldom shines I think — or hope — that natural selection will soon kick in and civilization will be all right again. Maybe all selfie sticks have a hidden mechanism that will backfire one day or that silently and gradually sterilizes their owners.
I also hear voices suggesting to ignore them but we can’t just ignore everything can we? Moreover we’re talking about millions of people that reluctantly leave the homes where they should rightfully stay and move around polluting, ruining cities and local economies. So yes, they are the problem with the whole world.
