1. The Foot/Food Fail

Whatever this guy was going for, it didn’t work.  Let’s not mix feet and food, guys.  Let’s stick with hands and even utensils.

2. Nostril Fail

Thanks, Stacie.  We actually were NOT wondering what the inside of your nostrils looked like.  But we’ll let you know.

3. The Dog Stays Silent

The dog’s expression in this photo says it all.  You know when you’re no longer amused, no longer concerned, no longer angry, just done?

4. Sideline Fail

Bad time for a selfie.  Given that the Sooners were on their way to losing this game, and the QB (pictured here) would cry in the press conference, this is a bad time for a selfie.

5. Shirtless With Cat

Here’s our friend from Manitoba again.  When you call yourself the Selfie King, you need to bring it.  Your shots can’t even keep the cat awake?  Selfie duke, maybe.

6. Running Fail

So this counts.  It’s important to own your selfie fail.  Get up tomorrow, get back out there on the trail and fail better.

7. Freaked-out Dog

Dogs are an integral part of the #selfiefail.  Often they silently bear witness to their masters’ failure, but sometimes, they are the failure themselves.  Thanks to them for helping us out.

 8. NSF…Oh, it’s a Dog

If your first reaction was to block the screen and look around to see if anyone saw you, take heart.  It’s just a dog again.  And, as much as we love dogs, they know not what they do.

9. Bruno Mars…ish

Your mirrored sunglasses?  Tough.  Your upper lip fuzz?  Tough.  You, holding your phone up and taking a photo of yourself to send to friends, all while forgetting that your mirrored sunglasses will reflect hands, wrists and phone?  Not….so…tough…?

10. Drag Me to Heck

You and me and baby makes….a horrific scene from an Italian giallo movie?  It would appear so.  It only takes two pudgy, disembodied arms to make a family selfie turn frightening.

11. I Need Your Clothes, Your Boots, and Your Motorcycle

Too little has been said about the cyborg #selfiefail.  Is this woman sitting in weird lighting, or was she sent here from the future to kill your mother so you’d never be born?  We’re just asking.

12. The Mom Selfie Fail

When you take a picture of yourself in your beautiful surroundings but fail to include yourself.  We would call this the definitive #selfiefail.  Or, as our mom would put it, “I did a selfie!”

13. The Horses are Watching

Every list of fails should include horses.  Not because they fail more than people.  Simply because horses are better than people.  Faster.  More graceful.  Taller.  They talk a lot less.  Here a horse shows pity on his hapless person.

14. Filter Fail

What’s happening here?  Do we have a filter happening?  Was there a face swap that went wrong…or right?  Since we can’t tell what happened, we’re calling it a #fail.

15. Small Head Fail

Again with the filters.  Buddy, if you’re gonna mess around with selfies and filters and then bring a dog into the mix, at least put a shirt on.  Your head is weird enough!

16. Multiple Universe Fail

We get it, you exercise.  We get it, you’re outdoorsy.  We get it, you have two faces.  Stop the bragging!

17. Pass the Blame Fail

Source: Butt it wasn‘t my fault. Digital Image. Instagram @g.i.s.p. December 8, 2017.

We include this one for various reasons, but mostly for the description.  Of all the reasons to call this a #selfiefail, he blames the “doggie butt”?!  Buddy.

18. Purple Fail

The makeup is going.  The duckface is going.  The purple is going.  Wait, the purple is going?  A lot of purple.

19. Caturday Fail

It’s time we brought cats back into the mix.  Why is it the cats are either shocked or sleeping in selfies?  There’s no in between.

20. Breakin’ the Law

Source: True Rebel. Digital Image. Instagram @_selfie__fails_. January 4, 2018.

Whoa, such a rule breaker, pal.  Who’s gonna tell you no selfies?  Nobody!  That’s who.  Today, it’s the no selfies please sign, tomorrow….the world?

21. The Red Selfie

#selfiefails are embarrassing, sure, but not this embarrassing.  Dude, you’re still young, you have many more selfie fails in your future.  Anyone who sits in the sun that long without sunscreen has to.

Radical Feminists Have Seized Control of a Federal Building in Mexico in Protest of the Government’s Apathy Towards Rampant Femicide

Radical Feminists Have Seized Control of a Federal Building in Mexico in Protest of the Government’s Apathy Towards Rampant Femicide

Last week, Mexican feminist activists took over the National Human Rights Commissions federal building in a move to bring greater awareness to the scourge of gender-based violence and femicide that has racked Mexico for decades.

According to the federal Interior Secretariat, the statistics in Mexico have recently taken a turn for the worse.

Domestic violence against women has became an even more acute problem since the pandemic has forced women to stay insider with their abusers. Emergency distress calls reporting domestic violence have risen by 50%.

The occupation of the Human Rights building is just another chapter in the saga of the “Ni Una Menos” (Not One More Woman) movement, an anti-femicide collective born in Argentina that has steadily been gaining steam in Mexico since 2019.

In recent years, anti-femicide demonstrations have been sparked by various heinous crimes against women or girls that have been largely overlooked by law enforcement officials.

Unfortunately, the government of Mexico has appeared to be apathetic to the wave of femicide that is overwhelming the women of their country.

Recently, when President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was asked to address Mexico’s gender violence epidemic, he demurred, stating that he didn’t “want femicide to detract” from the raffle his administration was holding for the sale of the presidential airplane.

As for the feminist activists at the heart of Ni Una Menos and the federal building occupation, the government’s failure to respond to anti-woman violence is the primary fuel for their anger. 

“We’re here so that the whole world will know that in Mexico they kill women and nobody does anything about it,” said Yesenia Zamudio to the LA Times. According to Zamudio, she is still seeking justice for the murder of her 19-year-old daughter four years ago.

The women of Mexico appear to be fed up, grasping at any and all tactics that have the potential to incite change on a grander scale.

Their tactics may seem dramatic to some, but it’s undeniable that they are no longer being ignored. As of now, the radical activists are pulling attention-grabbing stunts like decorating a portrait of Mexican Revolution leader Francisco Madero with lipstick and purple hair.

They’re also making headlines for vandalizing the federal building’s walls and splashing paint on the doors of the presidential palace.

One thing is for sure: something has to change. Otherwise, thousands of innocent women and girls will continue to be raped, abused, and murdered while their perpetrators escape with immunity.

Joe Biden Speaks Alongside ‘Fearless Fighter’ Kamala Harris In First Appearance And Recalls Her Family’s Immigrant Story

Joe Biden Speaks Alongside ‘Fearless Fighter’ Kamala Harris In First Appearance And Recalls Her Family’s Immigrant Story

After weeks of speculation and anticipation, presidential candidate Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that he has officially picked his running mate.

In a history-making announcement, Biden revealed that he had tapped California Sen. Kamala Harris to be his VP Pick.

“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” Biden announced in a tweet.

On Wednesday, Biden held his first campaign event alongside running mate Kamala Harris in Delaware.

During their speeches, the two candidates wore masks and kept their distance in keeping with COVID-19 standards.

Speaking about his VP pick, Biden described Harris as coming from an “America’s story.” Biden described Harris as “a child of immigrants” who “knows personally how immigrant families enrich our country as well as the challenges of what it means to grow up Black and Indian-American in the United States of America,” he explained. “And this morning, all across the nation, little girls woke up, especially little Black and brown girls that feel overlooked and undervalued in their communities, but today — today just maybe they’re seeing themselves for the first time in a new way as president and vice presidents.”

In a speech of her own, Harris emphasized the importance of family and urged citizens to vote.  “We need a mandate that proves that the past few years do not represent who we are or who we aspire to be,” she said. “Joe likes to say that character is on the ballot. And it’s true,” she explained. “I’ve had a lot of titles over my career and certainly vice president will be great. But ‘Momala’ will always be the one that means the most.”

Harris’s nomination makes her the first Black and first Indian-American woman on either major party’s presidential ticket.

Harris is a former prosecutor from California who challenged Biden in her own presidential bid last year. Her nomination makes her the fourth woman to appear on a major presidential ballot. Before her, Geraldine Ferraro ran as a Democratic vice presidential nominee in 1984. In 2008, Republican Sarah Palin ran as a vice presidential nominee, later in 2016, Hillary Clinton became the Democratic presidential nominee.

Biden’s choice was one that has long been in the works. In March of this year, he revealed that he would make a point to have a woman as his running mate and in July he announced that he had narrowed his picks down to four Black women.

Kamala Harris was elected to Congress in 2016.

This has been Harris’ first term as a senator. Before, she served as the California attorney general. During her time as AG, Harris formed a lasting friendship with Biden’s late son Beau who was attorney general at the time in Delaware. Writing about Beau’s death, in her memoir The Truths We Hold, Harris recalled that “there were periods when I was taking the heat when Beau and I talked every day, sometimes multiple times a day,” she wrote in her memoir. “We had each other’s backs.”

Biden’s son Beau died in 2015 from brain cancer. Harris attended his funeral.

During his announcement, Biden mentioned Harris’ friendship with his son.

“I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse,” Biden tweeted. “I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.”

So far, it seems there are quite a bit of Harris x Biden supporters.

Fans were quick to give their support and applaud her candidacy.

In a tweet acknowledging her nomination, Harris wrote “@JoeBiden can unify the American people because he’s spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he’ll build an America that lives up to our ideals. I’m honored to join him as our party’s nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”

Here’s to 2020 y’all. Get ready to make history.
