One of the more unfortunate trends to pop up at CES 2015 this year was the “selfie stick,” which is basically just a stick that you can attach to your phone and use it to hold the phone farther away from you so you can snap better selfies. The Oatmeal has put together a new cartoon flowchart that will help you decide whether you should buy yourself a selfie stick… and it basically says that you have no reason to do so unless you’re either Japanese or someone who has given up on life.

NO SELFIE STICKS HERE: CES 2015 Awards – The very best of CES 2015

And with one simple cartoon, you should basically lose any desire you ever had to own a selfie stick… unless you’re Japanese, of course, which isn’t anything to be ashamed of.
