    I'd stop short of calling them psychopaths. Somehow, immature & dumb come to mind, though.

    Even before the selfies became so omnipresent, there were people who were plastering their FB with pictures saying: "I and Parthenon", "I and Mona Lisa", "I and Eiffel Tower", etc.. Such dudes became the butt of jokes and a basic laughing stock among my college/work buddies.

    Sure, most people like to show off. They have been there, done this... Fine, keep it within reason. And try to gain some perspective here: "I and Mona Lisa" sounds really lame, doesn't it?

    Yeah, it should be "Mona Lisa & me". LOL!

    But I think I know what you mean.

    If we are correcting grammar, it should be "Mona Lisa & I"

    Men like the OP with the Ted Haggard "gay face" are pretty crazy too!
    I am not a selfie guy, not on Facebook.
    Metta is the cut and paste guy on RJ. Pretty much the same as someone obsessed with something they know nothing about. That is his MO. Modis Operandi.

    People who do anything in excess are likely borderline disorder.

    Joking aside, it is possibly a symptom of narcissistic personality disorder.

    Now, now, no need to bring Obama into the discussion. Something more on point will come up, sure. Perhaps the near-universal condemnation on today's news shows of his reference to the Crusades in defense of ISIS and Islam will merit its own thread. Metta?

    He is not defending ISIS by the way - just pointing out, as I have to people, that there is no church that can stand up and point with lily-white hands at another and say "How dare you do that - we never did!"

    It doesn't make ISIS any better, it is just a perfect use of the "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone" rule.

    If all the people calling for banning the *religion* of Islam because of some extremists looked at their own faith, they should be very glad there was no Facebook 1200 years ago, or Christianity, for example, would have been facing the same complaints.

    Fortunately, it learned its lesson, and stopped doing *those* barbaric acts (it still does some though)

    As you say, 1200 years ago, even if the Crusades didn't begin until 1095; you do the math, I'll handle the history. The issue isn't a "church's" claiming it never engaged in acts like ISIS and much of Islam now routinely commit, but the fact that the latter continue to do so, centuries after most other religions, including Xtianity, ceased doing so. Far from any "perfect use" is Obama's abuse of this argument, and not just for its temporal distance, but for its disproportionality in terms of scope and degree as well.

    people who habitually post inane topics may very well be psychopaths too.

    I take a lot of selfies because I am very insecure about myself and appearance, and with serious self-esteem issues ever since I can remember. I assume that is the case for SOME such selfies-fanatics, it's sad with many shades of pain and loneliness icon_cry.gif And I am the farthest thing from a psychopath, quite the opposite actually, a bleeding heart liberal to a fault and the color I bleed is empathy!!! This post is obviously a parody, but narcissism is what an actual study did conclude, and again I believe the root cause of that phenomena is insecurity.
