Oh, how sweet! (photo: Aric Snee)

Selfies are inherently sad. They've recently become incredibly popular, so the underlying pathos of taking a picture of yourself because there's no one around to take it for you has been muted somewhat, but it's still there. Don't fool yourself. And adding a selfie stick into the equation just makes it sadder. Buying one is literally investing in a future without photo-partners.

This selfie arm, though... Wow, this increases the sadness levels exponentially.

Oh. How... weird. (photo: Aric Snee)
