    Are selfies banned in this year's HK Marathon?

    The HK Marathon (Feb 16) is coming up, so.....

    Are selfies banned this year?

    Last time we heard about a potential smartphone ban was back in September when the organizers said they wanted to ban selfies after some camera-hungry selfie-lovers caused domino-like collisions in last year's marathon.

    Some people are so self-absorbed that 'banning' selfies at the Marathon won't have any effect. However, it does mean that the rest of us get to point and laugh.
