Selfie stick defense courses are now a thing apparently

Did someone say "selfie stick defense course"?


It was me.

People get super dumb and unobservant when they're using selfie sticks, making them easy marks for robbers and pickpockets. To combat this serious issue that I first learned about like five minutes ago, a sports center in Moscow now offers "mpd fight"—or, "monopod fight"—training, Atlas Obscura reports.

Love using selfie sticks but can't make it to Moscow? I've got a way cheaper selfie stick defense lifehack: Just coat yourself and all your clothing in poison.


Bad at filling out bios seeks same.
