Narcissism at its finest

Ever wondered about the kind of people who take pictures of themselves and post them on the internet in the hopes that people will tell them how hot they are? It seems there are many such people. And hotness isn't the only thing people want to be told about themselves... rating, apparently, is all the rage.

Are you hot or not? The original site.

You can see if you look like a celebrity..

Beautiful or ugly..

Goth or not...

Do you look more like your mum or your dad?

Rate your liposuction job..

Rate your toaster...

Your tats....

An arab.. or an asian..

Your lawn..

Your t-shirt or just your pecs..

Feel ill yet?

OK, have this (actually kinda cool).

So yeah, people's narcissism knows no bounds when they can be anonymously judged. I guess it's a weird kind of validation. Although being told my toaster isn't sexy wouldn't exactly destroy my psyche.

I guess I'm just not wired that way. But I do enjoy laughing at other people in situations where there are no repercussions. Maybe that's the whole point of the thing? Yeah, that'll be it. They're doing it for my entertainment! Because it's all about MY ego, not theirs!!

People are weird.

In other news, one relative seen off on the plane at some nonexistant hour this morning. Working back to peaceful times, just in time to go back to work..
