An Annoying Habit
OK..If you want to flame me for this one, I will accept the flames.
I really hate the digital camera and camera phones for one simple reason.
The stupid damn pictures that people (>95% Female) take when they are together. There are usually three to four of them with their heads tilted toward a common center, smiling like they are in a dental commercial, commemorating some insipid event.
My God. You are wasting electrons and bandwidth, would you please stop this. If you are taking a picture, take it of you doing something interesting. The picture of you showing off your recent teeth cleaning is STALE. Yes, you are wearing your nice clothes, but that isn't interesting either.
I don't know why you do this thing. Truth is, I am certain that the fact that the reasoning escapes me has something to do with my having two ex-wives. I think that the meme is now out there, and women feel the need to have pictures like this as some kind of odd trophy.
I don't get it, please stop.
