Hand with reflecting sphere used to be a photoshop cliché.

I'm pretty sure masturbation has been around for millions of years.

Wait...what are we talking about?

My Dearest Grand Duchess Anastasia,

Your royal self-centeredness.  I don't mean to alarm you with this horrible news but I fear in your bored posh teen selfie, one can clearly see your Brownie.

P.S. Did you get the furry muff I sent you?  This winter promises to be brutal.

Always a Tsarist.

Yours always,

Count Petri Von Peteroff

Those are perky lips, not duck faces. Subtle difference.

Kissie face does not equal duck face, Rex.

Best thing I've seen today and the 'shop artist really understands Vermeer's use of light.

This picture of the famous Apache warrior Geronimo from 1904 shows a reflection of the photographer in the eye of the famous Indian chief..

Really? The photographer is accidentally reflected? What a stupid list. Why the Hell isn't this on Cracked?

FTFA If you thought selfies were hip, edgy and technologically savvy, think again.

Did anyone think this, ever, at any time?

I've seen this before, recently. Learning how to use the gear and set exposures would obviate the pros to take selfies.

he 1880s companies like Kodak invented mass-produced affordable cameras that allowed for multiple copies to be made of images on 35mm film.

huh? I never heard of this before.

I guess they invented mass-produced affordable cameras that allowed for multiple copies to be made of images on 35mm film about the same time they invented phonographs to play the sound on all those 33rpm LPs they had sitting around.

Princess Anastasia the first teenage royal with a selfie. Yep, she looks bored. Too bad we didn't have internet back then. If we did, she would have never been murdered and the chaos of today would not be here.

My younger bro (17) takes stupid selfies all the time when I see him and sends them to friends on snapchat.  They have these convos through texting that includes a dumb face pic attached to each response.  I don't get it.  If I ever sent a picture of myself making a dumb face to one of my friends I'm pretty sure they'd beat my ass, not reciprocate.

yeah but this is just another Vermeer with less interesting detail than others

I've had the selfie version as wallpaper on one of my screens for quite a while, as it's an amusing mashup of great art and modern tech

/works for me
