"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

    Npo, no, no! Over my dead body. I wouldn't be seen dead with a selfie stick @Shiny03. (Do you have one?)

    Technology is endless in terms of introducing new features. I must confess that I am a technology illiterate person.

    Me, Myself and My Killfie

    All of them died because 1 lost balance while getting up and pulled rest.

    Russian teen Andrey R fell to his death while taking an 'extreme selfie'.

    The below people are believed to still be alive, but obviously acted incredibly foolish by putting their lives on the line for a selfie. No photo is worth your life, people.

    Very good @Shiny03! In particular the Russian selfie ban signs.
  • YellowtailYellowtail Posts: 756 ✭✭✭✭
    @Shiny03 the selfie-ban is almost same as "suicide-ban"!

    I think there's a chance that these could be hugely popular in the future, but the trend will be short-lived, I don't see many with normal selfie sticks anymore!

    I was appalled when a friend caught me on a selfie. Fortunately I was right at the back so my face wasn't as grossly distorted as her face.

    Hahaha. It's all about angles @Shiny03. Shooting from a high angle, this exaggerating the size of the eyes and gives the impression of a slender pointed chin.

  • Shiny03Shiny03 Posts: 2,876 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Okay, I'll practise for you. @mheredge

    No, are you serious? They all look exactly the same. :open_mouth:
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,747 mod
    Hahahaha! Yes @Shiny03 this is the kind of yoga I'm into. Nice and slow and relaxing. (@filauzio might approve of the speed of this form of exercise. We have been discussing how the world seems to be too fast and furious these days).

    Surely I would do @mheredge. But I was still looking at the amazing pictures @Shiny03 posted; I like to believe the white shark was rushing towards the camera... all smile... just to get in the foreground and, above all, that the boy wasn't aware of what was happening at his back ... otherwise, I really suppose all the textbooks of psychiatry wouldn't be enough to explain his case of madness. Most probably it was a fake selfie.
    glad to stop strict diet, splashed in belly flop? Don't care you're not light, here on English hop !
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,747 mod
    I'm not sure I believe these apparently dangerous selfies @filauzio. Photoshop means that the camera can lie so easily.
  • amatsuscribbleramatsuscribbler Posts: 2,287 mod
    Real or not, some of those photos made me catch my breath! Not good with heights. I take a few selfies with hubby but never post them!
  • aladdinaladdin Radio Producer LEOnetworkPosts: 1,608 mod
    Why? @amatsuscribbler you can post them on Flickr :D
  • amatsuscribbleramatsuscribbler Posts: 2,287 mod
    I don't like all this 'face search technology' @aladdin . So I keep most pictures of people private.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,747 mod
    Facebook is quite clever with recognising faces, but it often gets it wrong @amatsuscribbler.
