I am so freaking tired of watching all those eeediots trying to take a self-portrait photo by photographing the mirror.

The reslut; a picture of an eeediot looking not into the lens, but into the camera display. Same phenomenon can be seen with the same low-lives when they take pictures of their sorry selves with the webcam and stubbornly looks into the screen instead of into the lens of the webcam. I mean...WTF people???

Even worse, concerning the "mirror-portrait" is that 20-50% of the picture is blocked by the freaking camera itself!!! And they keep on uploading that crap over and over! Never thinking about how the quality of my life keeps declining because of that. Morons.
Makes me wanna....PUKE!

So, this is what you do, you aboslution of the eeediot-concept:

Stand, as usual, in front of the mirror.
Turn the freaking camra around so that the lens points towards you.
Look at the display in the mirror for reference.
Take the bloody photo already!!!

And most important of all:
Never, EVER bother me again with you total lack of brain capacity!!!
THINK, GOD DAMN IT! THINK!!!

Puh, that felt good.

Or, if you have any friends perhaps they can be trained to push the button that takes the picture of you standing in front of something interesting like the cage full of bears at the zoo, or the post office.

If you don't have any friends, learn to play the guitar or mandolin; sometimes you can fool people that you hava a personality and they
might want to hang out. Then ask them to take the picture.


I know that this isn't a "self portrait" but the effect is almost the same and after the photo shoot you can go to starbucks and have coffee.

or take some candids, ay, know what I mean, candids, wink wink nudge nudge, ay ay....

I just saw yet another eeediot in a community gallery just now.

No less than four (4!!!) pictures in a row with above mentioned failure.
In one of them, the camera took up about 45% of the picture.
Great stuff...

Moron.

I just don't get it why it is so freakin hard to figure it out.
It's like there is some sort of mental blocking with these people.
Makes me sick, and it makes me wonder where this world is headed.

Oh, please don't hate me, but I read that bit and thought " But.... but the camera would block the view"

Oh no!!! Anyway, you've just given me the best laugh I've had at my own expense for ages.

Does that make me an eeeeeeeediot or a mooooooron? Please don't answer.

Very good rant. You do rage and anger very well.

Now, is there anyway you could or would give us some examples of pics eeeeediots have done?

Thank you.

Oh, yes, yes there are many of them, but I don't know if it will interfere with any T&C to post pictures of random people here for others to laugh and curse at. These pictures are mostly found at communities and such...

But now, as you are aware of these eeediots, you will start noticing it more and more until you find yourself boiling in bloody rage with your jaws clenched until they start to crack just like me!
