This cartoon will shame you into never buying a ‘selfie stick’

One of the more unfortunate trends to pop up at CES 2015 this year was the “selfie stick,” which is basically just a stick that you can attach to your phone and use it to hold the phone farther away from you so you can snap better selfies. The Oatmeal has put together a new cartoon flowchart that will help you decide whether you should buy yourself a selfie stick… and it basically says that you have no reason to do so unless you’re either Japanese or someone who has given up on life.

Facebook’s future advanced AI will stop you from uploading drunken selfies

At some point in the future when your drunken self will think it’s perfectly fine to upload certain embarrassing selfies to Facebook, the social network will be so smart that it will be able to prevent it. The company is currently working on such advanced artificial intelligence that’ll be able to determine the content of pictures beyond simply recognizing your face or the face of your friends, and tell whether you’re intoxicated or not before offering an automated advice against uploading a picture that the entire world could see.

South Korea delivers a huge blow to selfie photographers

The bulky, revolving thing you’ll see at the top is part of an ugly camera that’ll supposedly allow the user to take better selfie photos than other devices. More →

Video: Man gets kicked in the face by a conductor while taking a selfie in front of a speeding train

No, you probably shouldn’t take selfies when standing in close proximity to large vehicles that are hurtling toward you. Gawker points us to a new video posted this week by someone named Jared Michael, who says that he recently “tried to take a selfie while a train passed a ‘safe’ distance behind.” The trouble was that he was still close enough to the tracks for the train’s conductor to reach out with his foot and kick him in the face. The results are predictably hilarious. More →
