LIFESTYLE                     Useless Information

I sometimes see the trouble young people and particularly young celebrities get themselves into because of their cameras on their phones or even worse, the camera on someone else’s phone. It seems that these days nothing happens without a photo or video being taken and you know what? I’m not blaming the kids or pointing the finger at anyone, hey, the glass house I live in is way too thin to be hurling rocks from.

I was no angel in my younger days, the difference is, no one had a camera with them to capture my weak choices. You took a camera with you if you were going on holidays or to an event and even then, you certainly didn’t take it to the toilet with you or to a night club or you would have been thrown into the ‘too weird’ basket by everyone.

Nowadays, a meal isn’t a meal without an Instagram shot, a quick reapplication of the lippy isn’t complete without a mirror shot in the bathroom, and it would seem that an NRL game isn’t over without an act being captured that is illegal in all but a couple of countries.

I go to events now, and I see an entire crowd not actually enjoying the spectacle they’ve turned up for but instead capturing it on their phone so they can later post it to show their social media friends how much fun they could have soaked up if they too had watched the event.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to have the ability to capture a memory I just kinda think I prefer to savour the moment and deposit that memory up top where I can enjoy it again later instead of showing someone on my phone, let’s face it, no one really wants to see them.

At the end of the day, it’s your life, remember it how you like, all I really wanted to make a point of is that, with all these cameras on phones, I was expecting to see more shots of bigfoot; come on people, let’s bring the big guy back to life, I miss him.

IT’S CALLED THE MEMORY

THE HUMAN BRAIN HAS A CAMERA FUNCTION.
