This is a good idea

Now that we have pictures of all the self-obsessed people we can make sure that they are on Ark Ship B and none have got lost and ended up on Ark Ship A (because they most likely have trouble reading).

".....we can make sure that they are on Ark Ship B and none have got lost and ended up on Ark Ship A (because they most likely have trouble reading)." Yeah, but it would be tempting to jump on Ark Ship B just because you'd be instantly elevated to most intelligent person on the ship.

Most intelligent person on the ship up untill the meteor hits the planet.

There is a reason why all the thickos are put on Ark Ship B.

"...... there will still be room for your moveable goalposts..." Heck, you can have the goalposts on Ark Ship B if it keeps you happy there. Not sure how you'll use them without a responsible adult to help you assemble them, but why let small issues like that bother you?

something like 'hot or not' then?

but without the votes possibly.

i foresee the kids having endless hours of either making fun of- or drooling over pictures in cozy little student get-togethers in Starbucks.

It uses the front camera of the iPhone to take self-shots

Are you really that desperate for hits?

Makes sense

Iv'e seen him a couple of times on the box, he has trouble stringing more than a couple of words together without a script so only pics will be perfect for him.

How difficult is it to track the source of an anonymous selfie?

Perhaps this is to lay the foundation for a lucrative blackmail business later.

Re: Makes sense

Surely they will be Geo Tagged photos allowing random people to stalk the selfie takers...

It will certainly make the child catchers job easier! Not that twitter & facebook geotagging hasn't already made it easy to stalk people.

Clever really

If all these "selfies" are posted anonymously then there may not be any meta data attached to the pics... which means Beebs could use all the pics to promote his new latest blah.. or could even sell off the pics to other companies to use in adverts.

Anonymous posting of pics of kids -- what could possibly go wrong?

The only word more annoying than "selfie" is "onesie".

Needless to say, it doesn't appear to mean "a selfie taken by the Queen".

Eh?

peering at selfies was infinitely more entertaining than gaping at pictures of "coffee or salad"

Who gapes at pictures of coffee or salad? Have I (yet again) I missed out on a major social craze?

Kids these days...

Always taking pictures of themselves and flinging 'em about. Not like in MY time, when taking a selfie meant paying someone to paint it on canvas while we sat very still for hours...

Canvas?

You're lucky you had canvas my lad. Back in my day, we had to sit there while someone chiselled out our likeness in stone, using nothing but bone and deer antler tools.

Canvas. Pah! You young kids these days got it easy.

Re: Canvas?

We used to dream of having actual Chisels, we had to make do with a cave wall and crude pigment paint made from plants that where mostly poison.

Re: Mtech25 Re: Canvas?

Hmmm, I see where you're going with this.

Right!

In my day, you had to dig your own cave out of solid granite with nowt but fingernails, gut yourself to use your innards for paint, and when you were done an ice age came along and froze you in place!

Just a matter of time before David Cameron posts a "selfie"... damn bandwagoner.

That said I doubt Beaber will ever post a selfie, he's so narcassistic he wouldn't let his visage be captured by anything less than a full photoshoot with proper lighting and professional photographers.
