    Your Thread title caught my eye, but my sense of humour failed to catch it's direction or intent. Should there be an accompanying image. or "please explain"

    Pretty small numbers really, unless someone taking a selfie started the reaction that lead to this .... http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-09-2...-mecca/6803178

    Doesn't surprise me. During a recent trip OS if I had a $ for every selfie stick I saw it would have paid for my trip. It was often quite amusing to watch some young girls pouting into their phones while taking a selfie.

    I "saved" a photographer who stepped backwards into the street trying to take a shot of a building near where I work. Not a selfie, but similar scenario.

    So this answers the question of whether we are alone in the universe or whether there is alien life.
    Yes, there is, and they use selfie-sticks.

    Wow! That makes the rest of us an advanced species
