Revolting and nauseating doesn't begin to describe my feelings.

Our country and world is f!!!ked up. End of times ain't that far away for how we currently know life to be.. regardless of which figurehead gets the electoral votes in November.

i'm with you, brother. this happened in argentina, btw.

isis or whoever could do serious damage by offering a free app that makes taking selfies better but contains something harmful. i'm really up to here with people who're so self-absorbed taking their own photos and posting all over the planet that they can't live in the moment with real folk.

Even though it happened elsewhere it just shows to me how our world has gotten so self absorbed without regard for anything but "I" and the immediate moment.

we don't have a monopoly on stupid, but what's sad is that so many people in other countries so want to be like us, like we're some shining, elevated example of humankind.

Yeah, I don't get it. 2 of the people that get the most media attention in our country and have the biggest followings in their respective area's are Donald Trump and Kanye West.

Apparently, the creature was already deceased prior to the photo op. But it does represent a disturbing human indulgence, and is much like the asshats killing big game for trophies.

....I don't remember now if I shared this previously, but a couple of week ago, I saw the irony of this trend epitomized while out with friends at a microbrewery; a handsome middle-aged couple was seated right next to us, sitting across from each other. They ordered soon after we did, and proceeded to both become self-absorbed in their smart-phones. I was sitting less than 3 feet from them, and even though our table was lively with conversation, I could tell the couple was not speaking at all. Then, maybe a half hour into the time, she gets up, stands beside him and snaps a selfie (he snaps one, too). She sits down again, and they both continue their silent togetherness, each on their own devices. I'm thinking, they'll both undoubtedly post their "smiling selfie" somewhere, to show all their friends what a Fine Time they were having. And maybe--in their own minds--it WAS just that.

I think we've already hashed out how I feel about human's mistreating animals. .. Wink

Just disgusting. This isn't the first case either, there's another couple that did this to a full grown dolphin earlier this week.

it's so sad. my nephew didn't understand when i insisted he put down his phone while we were eating at a nice restaurant he could never afford and i was treating him to, and after not seeing him for years. in retrospect, i'm not so shocked. but i wasn't prepared to see this . . . affliction . . . take hold among people my age.
