Truly, we are in the end times people!
Narcissism, mixed with stupidity.
Talking of selfies, I was in New York a couple of weeks ago and went to pay my respects to the WTC memorial. Amongst the many people photographing it - with which I have no problem - were people taking grinning selfies as they stood in front of a solemn memorial to several thousand who died in appalling circumstances after an attack that has changed the world.
I was sickened.
Why, oh why, would anyone even think of doing this? It's just weird
21st Century Western secular democracy for the win.
And rightly so. Behaviour like that is one reason why I've never been and never will go to that place. Or any other mass grave.
I have just read that there have been 12 recorded selfie deaths this year. Survival of the less idiotic in action!
May I just point out that it's nutSCAPING.
Not nutsCAPPING. That sounds somewhat reminiscent of KNEECAPPING and is probably somewhere you chaps would probably rather not go.
Now that WOULD make for some epic selfies!
Does the photographer require an assistant to get the "view" perfectly framed?
I haven't taken a good selfie of myself. They just don't look right. What am I doing wrong?
What are you doing wrong?
Looking at them with knowledge of composition and good taste!!
I'm just not photogenic
Some people just don't have sufficient balls.
I know Hitler was said to have only one, but I thought most men have the usual three.
(Shh. Don't anyone tell him that four is normal.)
In a previous career, when I kept somewhat more larkish company, leaving one's camera unattended was always a risky thing to do. There was a high chance when subsequently collecting the prints from Boots (and invariably from a lady) that one would discover a number were close-ups of a hairy pair, or a couple of bare butts.
I guess digital cameras have taken the 'fun' out of that one.
Those taking the pictures aren't very good at it.... in all the examples I've seen there's always at least one hair in the gate!
I have just Googled and now I want to wash my eye balls. Thanks @lanokia!
