Pics these days, am I right?
Why in my day we had to WAIT AN ENTIRE WEEK to even know if our selfies, which we just called “photos,” even turned out right (a HARD NO 99% of the time)! Gone are the times of a simple snapshot with friends or a blurry panoramic of some landscape you don’t even remember the name of by the time the pictures come back from the Rite-Aid photo center! Kids nowadays are out here with an entire crew of assistants for their Instabooks and Twittergrams! I am 936 years old!
But seriously folks: who among us hasn’t gone to great lengths to get juuuust the right Instagram shot? I once broke an entire set of drinking glasses while trying to take the perfect “Tom Hardy’s MySpace”-style thirst trap—I’d propped myself up on the kitchen counter to get the right angle and light such that I’d actually have a chin and jawline for once, and my supporting hand slipped directly into the glasses drying behind me and they all fell on the tile floor.
