If you could ban anything, what would you ban?

As above.
This is one of my favourite topics of conversation. It can be anything you like, no rules, but ideally small, petty, and lighthearted. It usually is things that aren't already illegal, but it can be, as not all laws get followed. It can be anything you want!
Lighthearted, if possible!
My list includes but is not limited to,
fireworks
glitter
people spitting
children running at pigeons
balloons
daylight savings time
loud cars and motorbikes
my vacuum running out of battery
having a cold nose.
Please, tell me yours!

When I am dictator of the world I will ban fireworks first. I'll only allow then in community displays once a year and they will not have bangs.
Giltter will be out too, and people who play music on their phones without headphones. None of that.

I agree with all these, and am going to add confetti. I hate the stuff.

Unsolicited religious evangelism - to include street preaching, cold calls, doorstepping, unwanted mail. If people want to explore religion, let them seek it out of their own volition.

does that include eyebrows though?!
I do sort of agree, I find it a bit annoying that I have such a determined beard, but I have to admit I do enjoy plucking them, so I would miss doing that.

I agree, you have excellent taste of things you hate.
