I managed to bend a spoon over my anvil, but I forgot to have a shave before taking the selfie and I look awful. How do I crop the pic?

No one is trying to get you banned. You get yourself suspended often enough, that any such effort would be redundant

I don't remember ever banning myself. I don't give up easily. Nay, I was banned/suspended/whatever for being a troll of sorts. See this apt post, from about 5 minutes ago:

You were suspended on numerous occasions for violating the fua. You are the least likely of trolls in any case. You are however very often susceptible to trolling.

I often feel violated, but one voice in the wilderness is useless for promoting another's head loss. I'll give you that. Enjoy your weekend.

Ironically enough given this thread's current tragectory (haven't read it all) the Issue mentioned in the title instantly conjures up the word narcissism - that those who take a lot of selfies are being narcissistic. How did the narcissistic operah singer warm up? "MEMEMEMEMEMEME!"

What's more distasteful though - selfie culture or conspicuous consumption?

How is it a false dichotomy? There's no suggestion that those are the only options, just a simple query as to which is worse.

If they're both abhorrent, it does not matter which one is worse. If an act is abhorrent, I am obliged to behead anyone committing such an act. Or do I have this wrong:?

K.I.R said distasteful, not abhorrent.

If there is a fallacy being committed here, it is the fallacy of many questions, as the presumption is that the question as to whether either or both of things being distasteful, has already been answered.

Exactly. If KIR wanted to point out to jamest how absurd it is to say the selfie culture is abhorrent, when it is only distasteful, he could not have chosen a much better example than conspicuous consumption. Naming your boy-child Kevin or your girl-child Charmayne comes in a distant second.

Some friends named their golden lab Chardonnay. That was the dumbest dog I've ever seen. Chardy got excited one evening and ran right through the screen door out to the deck without missing a beat. I don't suppose it's all that uncommon to hang that name on a golden lab.
