    Seems that any device capable of taking pictures - especially selfies - should come with mandatory safety restraints, helmets, parachutes and Bad Idea Detectors.

    We need to let Nature takes its course and drain the shallow end of the Gene Pool. Plus, I need the laugh every now and then. They would ignore electronic warnings same as they do the NUMEROUS signs, warning you away from dumbassery.

    You may be right.
    Instead of having stickers on lawnmowers saying not to stick your hands underneath while it's running, and motorcycle manuals saying not to take your hands off the handlebars while driving; maybe they should tell you to do exactly those things.

    People with common sense would never do them anyway, so that leaves...

    I've been thinking about something.
    Natural Selection may just be too important, too urgent and too slow a process for us to leave it entirely up to nature.
