19-year-old Danny Bowman is now telling his story on how taking "selfies" nearly killed him. He was so obsessed with getting the perfect photo of himself, he would waste up to 10 hours a day on his mission and would take up to 200 selfies a day. This obsession lead him to overdosing at his home when he realized he couldn't reach perfection.
A few weeks ago, we were talking about the slightly disturbing trend amongst teens who were taking "selfies" at funerals and posting them online for the world to see. Now it seems as if the leader of the free world, President Barack Obama has joined in all the fun by snapping a three-way selfie the Nelson Mandela memorial.
After a yearly increase in usage of 17,000 percent, "selfie" was crowned 2013's Word of the Year by Oxford Dictionaries, following last year's winner "gif" and beating out the Miley Cyrus-endorsed "twerk," among others.
Some internet fads are sillier than others, but this one is just awful. Taking "selfies" at funerals has now become the thing to do and there is even a Tumblr page called SelfiesAtFunerals that encourages and collects these little internet nuggets of disrespect.
