The Selfie Game

21 Nov

Come one, come all!

With the rise of social media, comes the rise in attention to the selfie. Selfies have existed probably as long as the camera, but without a way to post them for the world to see, they went undetected for years.

Take a look at this famous selfie from 1991 by Thelma and Louise.

I did some research via UrbanDictionary to figure out just what constitutes a “selfie”, but the only thing that seems to be true of all selfies is that, of course, you take them yourself. So lets play a little game….I’m going to post some pictures of yours truly, and I want YOU to tell me if they are a selfie or not!

Here we go.

Round 1: Pictures of just me

Rules: Tell me if each picture IS a selfie, or is NOT a selfie.

Round 2: Pictures of me, with someone

Rules: For each picture, tell me if you think the picture IS a selfie (taken by me) or is NOT a selfie (not taken by me). If you think someone else in the picture took the photo, tell me who.

      I need to stop looking at this… I keep waffling on whether or not 13 could be a non-selfie.

    I’m going with they’re all selfies. But a good picture is still a good picture, regardless of whether or not there’s someone else available to take it. I can haz a massage from that Christopher van Etten guy I’ve been drooling over lately? (Yes, someone has trumphed Channing Tatum.)

      Awww!! You’re the best!! I really do hope you feel better soon

      The dude who is missing 1.5 legs?????? He is a cutie! I think his face is much more normal than Channing Tatum, and I’m a sucker for a guy with broken body parts (is that weird??)

        Yes, him. There’s something about him that makes my hand gravitate towards the nearest jar of Nutella. I’m a sucker for a man in , though I don’t think I could handle an actual deployment. (which is weirder is yours is weird. Lol)

          Uniform * goes on there somewhere… Stupid phone.

          • mishie1 November 22, 2014 at 8:28 pm #

            Hahaha! Yes….I, too, am a sucker for a man in uniform but I agree that I don’t think I could handle deployment
