litespeed74: You know what's more annoying than self taken pics in the bathroom or car? The word "selfie" it needs to die immediately.


I don't know, I think it is the perfect word to derisively mock the vain.

Note that the mob did not freelance. The only allowable targets were other people in the mob or people who were involved with the mob.

Mikey1969: RexTalionis: It is a "selfie," it's just someone else's "selfie" with the Pope in it.

"Selfie" shouldn't count when there is more than 1 person in the picture. FFS, what are you going to do, hand your phone or camera over to a total stranger to take the picture? Seriously, people have been doing this for decades, the whole "phenomenon" is all of these stupid self-indulgent solo shots, not people on vacation, and one takes the pic of the whole group.


A 'Selfie' is a picture you take that you are also in.  It doesn't matter who else is there and who else is in the picture.

WTF Indeed: I hate the idea of the "selfie", but if I ever got a selfie with the Pope I'd put that sh*t on the resume.

I've been taking photographs of myself for years (even have some on film), but it's always somewhere cool like on a remote beach, glacier, moutain top, river, etc. with a view in the background.

I've never taken a selfie though.

That waxen cherub with the underbite who is photobombing the Pope is scarier than Sister Ignatia Loyala.

Hello, it's the Pope. Please hold the line for God.

I thought that was the first thing anyone with a smartphone did at first. How do you NOT take a pic of yourself while playing around with a new toy like that?

I'm curious to see what this Pope's lasting legacy will be. I have a feeling that even though he is basically very conservative on many issues with which the Catholic Church struggles, he is probably also not the doormat that the Cardinals thought he would be. Not even in the slightest.

He will not change the sanctity of life doctrine, it's too intrinsic to the faith. So no changes in anti-abortion, anti-death penalty, anti-euthanasia. Maybe a little lightening up in contraception, condoms for disease control. Maybe.
But expect a lot more emphasis on social justice.

Well it is technically someone's selfie.
