No More Selfies with the Kitty
From 2015, posing and clicking pictures with lions and other big cats has been termed illegal in New York, prompted mainly due to safety concerns and the well-being of the wild animals.
We live in a world where anybody and everybody is either on Facebook or Instagram, and our photos tell our story. Everyone wants to freeze every moment they feel pretty or are having a time of their lives in a few kilobytes. It is a world where, whether you love them or hate them, selfies are here to stay!
As great as they may be, these gadgets have received a lot of criticism. Apart from being extremely dorky-looking, the rising popularity of this gadget depicts the narcissistic and self-obsessed bunch we have become. Today, many tourist attractions in the world have prohibited the use of this gadget, and that's not just because they make you look dorky.
Places That Have Banned The Selfie Stick
If you thought you could live with these bans, here are a few more, a bit hard to digest. Selfie sticks were banned from the cycling event in Australia called "Tour Down Under", for the safety of spectators, cyclists, and officials. Apple Inc. banned these from a WWDC Developers conference to discourage filming and professional photography of the event.
The latest trend of banning selfie sticks is soon catching on and is getting banned from almost everywhere you want to be, not because everyone around hates to see you carry your selfie sticks and posing your heart out, but because people have always refused to respect the rules the places they visited.
