It’s still early, but I’m going to go ahead and call it: 2014 is the year of the selfie. Don’t get me wrong, 2013 was a pretty good year for selfies, too, and really people have been taking stupid, pointless pictures of themselves ever since digital cameras came around and pictures stopped costing them money.
However, 2014 will mark the elevation of the selfie from something vain and pointless to something creative and worthwhile. After all, the year kicked off with the so-called “Selfie Olympics,” in which people tried to outdo one another with selfies posted on social media sites. You just know it’s only going to get more insane from here.
Is this a good thing? Well, if nothing else, there’s potential. Today, therefore, we’re going to celebrate the year of the selfie with this list of flat out insane, almost absurd selfies that will make you hate yourself for ever doing the duckface. So take a look and marvel at how lame every picture you’ve ever taken actually is.
