Some of the best parties I've been at have no-camera rules.

d-bags that feel its their right to record things without consent can gtfo. nobody needs you around putting others privacy in jeopardy.

I suspect once the novelty with hipstermatic pics and facebooking everything subsides, we might see more of this (camera-free zones).

People need / want their fun without it causing trouble for years after.

also consider as you age,you have more to lose.

You forgot ", Citizen" at the end of that.

Really? You think because I'm saying that maybe doing stupid shiat at a party and not expecting there to be unfortunate consequences is a bad idea, that makes me some Big Brother-style blackshirt? Ok then.

I mean, honestly, that's your argument! You should be able to do stupid shiat, and get away with it - but boo farking hoo, all those people with camera phones!

So because people can't feel the need to not take a dump without texting/tweeting/FBing it everyone else should have to be on the look out? Seriously? I'm not a farking celebrity and don't need my picture taken and then tagged when I'm enjoying a beer. Some people, like myself, have jobs where that shiat is frowned upon. Grow up and put your damn phone away. If you feel the need to chronicle your life fine but not everyone feels the same. It's about respect.


No, there's a difference between people attention-whoring about every aspect of their life, and what Mugato did, which was complaining about people filming him at a party if he did something stupid. And I'd hate to have your job, where holding a beer is frowned upon. Do you work at the Mormon Tabernacle Choir?

A bug bomb or three will probably solve the administration's cricket problem, once they realize they have one. I'm fairly sure that's what the post office did when they caved in the vent on my cricket shipment in their sorting room back in the day, and about 80% of the crix got loose. According to the snailman, that was far from the worst bugs-getting-loose problem they ever had; when the box of mail-order bees fell off a table and all the bees got loose, that was bad.

He couldn't do it during the actual graduation, but at our graduation practice, a person who will remain nameless (but is to this day a hero to the class) got into the sound booth, put a looping tape of "We Don't Need No Education" in the cart machine, and disappeared, locking the door behind him. They had to get a janitor with the key. One of the assistant principals looked like he was about to have a stroke. The senior class, of course, totally lost it; depending on preference, we were clapping, cheering, or singing along.

I don't remember a whole lot about my graduation itself, except for it being very hot, very long, and very subject to a teacher who made an interminable speech containing every cliche in the book and then some (when she said "perhaps some people think I should stop now" the audience applauded... but she went on for another half hour).. But I'll never forget that practice the day before, or the look on the assistant principal's face as he bounded off the stage.

Worse. I work in an elementary school. Hell hath no fury like middle-aged bitties with nothing better to do than gossip and parents waiting for you to do something normal - like drink. My Facebook is locked down - I'm not an idiot. People that feel the need to tag others should be shot. I don't do stupid shiat at parties - I just don't get the need to take pictures constantly and instantly upload it to the masses.

"...don't do anything stupid that might come back to bite you in the ass."

The problem with that (aside from the fact that most people have done at least one really, really stupid thing at some point) is that many people consider parties to be a private place where they can kick back and relax, let off steam, and not have to worry about someone a decade later looking at every detail of a night when that person was 21 and single and very, very drunk. It's kind of why you can do things at a party that you wouldn't want to do in Times Square. Except, thanks to people who have an obsession with documenting the minutia of other people's lives, everywhere effectively is Times Square now.

It's always been an aspect of our society -- of any human society -- that things you do eventually get left behind as you grow and change. It allows people to grow and change, instead of being locked into the person they were in their youngest years. Our social institutions, our relationships with each other, even, yes, our employment, are all based around the idea that things we did back in the day will eventually recede into the past, to be replaced by the things we've done recently and the people we are now. This is changing, and changing fast. More importantly, it's changing faster than the society built around its opposite is adapting. That lag is going to cause some significant problems for a while. Probably for at least a couple of generations.

I sincerely hope someone gets the thread's sanctimonious dickbag plastered, draws a penis on his face with a sharpie, puts it as his facebook profile pic, films him making out with his sister (or someone who could pass for same) and puts that on YouTube.

Because the one thing sweeter than Brazilian anal gangbangs on the internet is seeing sanctimonious dickbags get their comeuppance.

bambi121899: Anyone know why we aren't deporting this asshole [Dharun Ravi]?


Deportation isn't necessarily the best, only, most effective, harshest, or optimal punishment every time a non-citizen commits a crime.

The system is already pretty farked up as it is, insofar as it makes non-criminal, non-asshole green card holders live in fear that their first bar fight or pot bust is going to get them shipped back to a country they haven't seen since they were in diapers. If it makes you feel any better, remember that the prosecution offered Ravi 600 hours of community service for the fairly minor crimes he was actually on trial for. He's spending a month in County (and that could easily have been much more) because his immigration status forced him to roll the dice on a not guilty verdict.

No argument about him being an asshole.

Well, I'm glad that all we had in college were pagers.

I still say my old boss had one of the best senior pranks. She and some friends stole a skeleton from one of the science classes, threw some old clothes on it, broke into the old gym that was being remodeled and tore up one of the walls, threw in the skeleton, then boarded it back up. The next day the local police were there, the county coroner was there, took them all a few minutes before they realized the skeleton was wired up. Great prank, they weren't even mad about it.

Max Awesome: I could feel people around me getting impatient while waiting for me to get out of the frame so they could get their shot. (We're Canadian, so everybody was still polite about it.)


The people that want everyone to get out of the way so they can take a picture of themselves in front of the tanks absolutely get ignored by me. I don't care if they're impatient or not. Fact is, it's a public exhibit and it's there for everyone to view, not for your own personal photo opportunity. I'll make room for people to view the exhibit, and try not to linger too long holding up a spot if it's extremely busy, but I'm sure as hell not completely clearing the way for a group photo opportunity, and neither should others. Apparently these people don't realize no one cares about seeing 100s of pictures of them standing in front of random places anyway. Ok, we get it, you went somewhere. But they're all pictures of you looking exactly the same as in the last 100 pictures, and you're blocking anything that may have made the picture worth viewing to people that haven't been there. I don't care to see more than one photo of you standing there posing like a guido, or making a silly face or hand gesture that you apparently think your friends will find unbelievably amusing or awesome.

I dunno, this doesn't really seem all that clever to me. More douchey.

The two best senior pranks I've heard were: A couple of years before my class went through, some of the auto shop students snuck into the school at night, and in the small open courtyard in between the two cafeterias, brought in and reassembled an entire car, in an area that had no exterior egress and only normally locked doors. The other one, I don't know for sure where/when it happened, but apparently the students covered every surface of the principles office (desk, shelves, cabinets, floor, etc) with little cups of water, leaving only a swath for the principle to open the door the next day.

Worst prank I ever heard doesn't sound bad at first, which was to take a Holstein calf from the nearby farm and put it on the roof. The bad part came when the calf's mother rejected it upon return and it ended up dying.

Prosthetic Anus: Actually for once, I agree with Mugato.

This whole phenomenon of everyone sharing farking everything publicly is appalling. The masses have become big brother without the government having to do anything at all. Get over yourselves, you're tossing away freedom and privacy. It's disgusting.


It's worth watching this TED talk by Hasan Elahi, who shows how he decided to keep the FBI apprised of his whereabouts after being mistakenly tagged for a terrorist watch list. (They had recommended that he call them each time he planned to travel.) Over time he provides them with more and more detailed information until it seems like he goes over the top by photographing and timestamping every place he goes, every meal he eats, etc. ... and then he points out that millions voluntarily now do what he did by posting the minutiae of their lives on FB.

THIS, a thousand times THIS.
One family photo in front of the entry sign is quite enough. After that, photos should be an effort to be interesting, not an unending stream of "Here's Jane in front of the Tigers. Here's Bill in front of the roller coaster. Now here's a different one, here's one of Jane pointing at the Elephant..." In fact, the "stand in front of crap" crowd is actually in MY way.

How old are you? Are you really unaware that school teachers have been fired because a single photo of a teacher appeared on-line that included a glass of wine sitting next to a plate full of food? Are you really incapable of understanding how information, especially pictures, posted on-line can be exploited and misused?

As for Mugato, he has a point. Generally, people go to a party to have fun. They will tell more jokes than usual. They might consume an alcoholic beverage. Frequently, party attenders will flirt with others. You seem to be suggesting that people must now keep a firm grasp on the corn cob up their butts when attending a party because you want to continually film and photograph others without their consent. You must be a boat load of fun at a party.

I do a lot of photography for fun and I rarely bring a camera out at a party. I consider it very rude to put things up on facebook without asking permission and sharing the photo with the person I've taken. Especially if they could be incriminating. In ubermoralistic America, I think I'd ask no matter how innocent the photo is.

If I'm partying with them, I obviously don't hold enough malice to want to see them fired.

That all said- I won't be surprised when first lawsuits come out against the "publishers" of photos that have cost people their jobs. There's a reasonable expectation of privacy at a party (ie- not published on an international scale), publishing random photos from a party is not in the public interest so can't be protected by that. You've not obtained a model release form, so publication is out on that level as well.

Basically, by the rules of professional photography, you're not only a massive twunt if you take photos at a party, you're also heading up a certain creek and throwing the paddle away.

Man, Farkers jump to so many conclusions. I personally do not make it a habit of ever taking others peoples pics and uploading them (or worse, tagging them) without explicit permission...

danceswithfat.files.wordpress.com

But on its face value, all the man essentially said is that no one has an inherent right to act stupid in public and expect that it won't be documented. I do sympathize that it's hard to truly kick back when we are surrounded by cameras in every direction (both hand cams/phones and security cams) but those are the times we live in, and I see it getting much more concentrated in that direction as time goes on.

Google (and other firms) are working on some new technologies that will make cameras even more ubiquitous. Such that you won't even recognize that a camera is staring at you (because it just looks like some weird glasses).

I conduct myself accordingly, knowing that I am surrounded by a million digital eyes. Honestly, it doesn't limit me too much. I still act like a damn fool around my close friends and family (and they have yet to post me online unless I allowed it). I just practice more restraint around strangers or out in public than I would have a few decades ago.

To fight against this just seems like Grandpa Simpson yelling at clouds to me. Around Fark we generally LOOOVE technology and gadgets, but suddenly people who use the technology against you are TOTAL ASSHOLE DOUCHEBAGS.

Bullshiat. It's a two-way social street, IMO. Don't give people ammunition and you will find you get shot a lot less. And choose better friends and hangouts. Frat parties aren't usually the best way to spend your evenings, anyway.
