What do you guys think?

I cannot understand the selfie mentality. Is this generational? I have had friends that I knew on Facebook, people that I liked a lot in fact, who posted an incredible number of selfies. Why? What is so appealing about that? The only time I have ever taken a selfie was when it was required. Some jobs require them, for identification purposes.

Why is the idea of a selfie so distasteful to me? What about you? How do you feel about that?

I do not mind putting myself on YouTube. When I have made a YouTube it has been for the purpose of sharing an idea or information, in other words, in hopes of making the world a better place. When I write, likewise.

Even shy people take selfies? Why?

Haven’t I seen your face enough times? Yes, your face is interesting, but maybe 10 times a day is a bit much? I just don’t get it, but…I think this is something I shouldn’t judge so harshly as other generations grew up with cellular telephones as the norm.

At the same time, I think the sweeping generalization statement that we all love to take selfies is certainly false.

Please tell me just how crazy I am to take photos of Puzzle. Maybe in some cultures adoring your dog is considered pathological. If that is true, I hope I have a very severe case of it, dual-diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Talent (not disorder!).
