The sagging pants thing has been around for over 20 years, and I thought that was a fad.



I'm glad disco and leisure suits aren't in vogue anymore though, aren't you? And thank God the mullet is pretty much gone too. Remember pet rocks and mood rings? Gone. I remember when Beanie Babies were all the rage. People were spending a hundred dollars for a stupid stuffed toy!

Nothing wrong with self-confidence. If someone has a highly extroverted personality and enjoys taking selfies, or wearing shocking attire, that's their deal, and if I find it distasteful that's my deal, and the world goes on turning. Different strokes for different folks.

I'm the kind of guy that couldn't care less what I wear, as long as it suits a purpose, and taking a picture reminds me of the past, when I'm always trying to imagine the future. Just not my thing. To each their own.

I have never taken a selfie - I know what I look like, as do others.

I enjoy taking the piss out of family members that take selfies, I call them names that make them think they are sheep and bimbo, knobhead conformists to glossy-magazine propaganda and the kardashian-factor. That gets their attention.

I have lots of passport photos though for when others require my photo.


Thank you Sublimecraft for posting one of the best posts I have read in a long long time. I laughed like hell and it brought the wife into our office to see what was so humorous. On the other hand your post makes some serious points.
ETA....S&F to the OP

I've personally over 2 million followers on Facebook and I've never once posted a selfie. Or a picture of myself for that matter.

True story.

I must know a LOT of psychopaths.

In fact, I wonder if social media is creating more sociopaths...?

I'd like to see some research into the psychology of the young women who post hundreds of selfies on Instagram so they can get the admiration of their "followers" which are mostly horny young men.

It's a disturbing trend and it's giving people a massively inflated ego.

Social media is great for insecure people. It gives these people a platform to "attention seek".

Take some time today and scroll through your feeds. Look at what people are saying. Ask yourself why they are sharing that information...

Remember: "Social media, we crop out the crap and post the good parts online".

I'd like to know if the trend started with the rise of the people like Tila Tequila and the Kardashians and the others like them who more or less become famous for just being famous.

So people put their faces and bodies out there hoping to be the next one to cash in on it.

The media makes the trends and has for a very long time ... generations of people wanted to be like the stars of their time as presented by the papers, radio, movies and then television. Only thing different these days is the web has given everyone and their iPhone endless spam space. They're self proclaimed stars in their own minds and think the world wants to know too. I guess it is a double edged sword so watch what you post kids - it'll be out "there" till the whole machine crash n burns.

This doesn't really make much sense. Narcissism, yes, I can completely understand that, but Psychopathy?

I find it incredibly ironic that just a few months ago (or was it last year) they stated that psychopaths are more likely not to use social networking sites (which I also think doesn't make much sense). Does that claim not conflict with this current claim?

I find it socially revolting to take a picture of oneself in public. I'm not entirely certain why, but the action is repugnant to me.

I've tried it but gave up because they always wind up looking like that

No...Sagging pants didn't start in the pen. If you weren't around, or part of the era when the fad started you wouldn't understand it. Skinny jeans is slot worse though.

Uh ok. Saggy pants was a fad you got caught up in. You didn't also wear them backwards like cris cross did you? Sagging pants was started in the pen. Kinda like the gangsta way of holding a pistol sideways was started in the pen from observing cops carrying riot shields with a pistol.

I agree with skinny jeans. On a dude they can be pretty unattractive. That being said I know some styles of skinny jeans and pants were started by bikers. Cause loose billowy pant cuffs tend to nestle up with the exhaust pipe on motorcycles and burn. And the fad caught on.

I disagree with the study, however ifind selfiesvery irritating. Especially those selfies where the person tilts their head to the side and pouts their lips.


What you don't like girls that look like fish


Selfies are perhaps just like a mirror for narcissistic egocentric superficial people. Mirror/Selfie
Has our whole society become superficial?
