Selfies At Serious Places
Nothing is #sacred.

Selfies are tearing the Internet apart. A new study found that posting too many selfies online is ruining people’s lives, and yet teenagers’ desire to Instagram everything continues its path of destruction. YOLO, m'right?

It’s also a reminder that selfies can be a bad idea. Who could forget this doozy of George Zimmerman’s lawyer, Don West, celebrating after trial?

Here are a few of the highlights. If anything, it’s reassuring that in these times of perennial war and political upheaval, that teenage selfie pose is the same everywhere.



There are other, non-landmark pics as well. But what millennial worth their salt doesn't have a 9/11 Memorial selfie?
