    Cool the need to assert vitality in the soberest of moments

    Interesting historical perspective:

    For human existence, for as long as we’ve been recording it, dealing with horror and tragedy and grotesqueries large and small has been achieved primarily by acting patently ridiculous.

    ^^ I'm glad the article raised the reality about how sanitized from death and suffering the current culture happens to be. I mean, there are cultures where they wouldn't even name the children until they were some years old because it was likely the child wouldn't live that long even if born healthy.

    I still also suspect that outrage blooms easiest in the spacious garden of cultural boredom.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    'Selfie' is a cringeworthy word and a cringeworthier concept. That's the most offensive thing about this.

    Would it be less offensive if she took a picture of herself crying or frowning?
