National Selfie Day is June 21st. The term "selfie" was coined in 2002 by an Australian man who posted pictures of himself on Flickr while drunk. The first self-portrait photograph was taken back in 1839. The word "selfie" was added to the Oxford Dictionary in 2013, but the selfie didn't get its own holiday until 2014. Not that long ago, people – usually teens and younger – showed they had been somewhere by marking a tree with their initials or scribbling graffiti. The stalls of public restrooms were a favorite target. But now that’s so old-fashioned – you can just take a selfie and share it with the world through the miracle of the Internet.
Photoshop how selfies would look through history if modern smartphones were available back then. You are welcome to use any celebrities and politicians in any historic times, up to the year 2000. The themepost provides a good example as well as this chop. Many thanks to vicspa for both of them. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player.

This Sunday is the second most celebrated holiday in the USA next to Mother's Day. Father's Day is one day we have set aside to honor our father. Let's face it, we would really be nowhere without him.

Flag Day was set aside more than 50 years ago by President Harry Truman. He asked the US congress to designate June 14th of each year as Flag Day to honor the Stars and Stripes. (image credit Pixabay/Skeeze).

Malcolm John Rebennack Jr., known around the world as Dr. John, has died at age 77. The celebrated Louisiana singer and piano player who mixed black and white musical influence assumed the persona of Dr. John the Night Tripper in the late 1960s. His singer songwriter career includes six Grammy Awards, an honorary doctorate of fine arts from Tulane University and is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his prolific career in blues, pop, jazz, boogie woogie and rock and roll. Dr John, remained an active creative force until he disappeared from public view 18 months ago, died Thursday of a heart attack after years of declining health.(image credit: Erika Goldring-Getty Images)

President Donald Trump kicked off his first state visit to the United Kingdom Monday, nearly two years after he was first invited.

In humans and other animals, body cells get oxygen through blood cells that capture oxygen from the lungs. Insects' blood (hemolymph) does not carry oxygen, and body cells get it directly from the air that is supplied by the complex system of little hollow tubes (called tracheas or windpipes). Since insects don't have lungs but only "passive" tracheas, such primitive "ventilation" system can only stay effective as the length of tracheas is short enough, otherwise the "deep down" cells will not be ventilated enough and will die of oxygen starvation. That is why those scary old Japanese movies with huge insects (gigantic moth shooting thunderbolts from its eyes, etc) fighting giant animals are physically impossible in real life.
If insects had some features of animals (lungs, etc.) huge size would not a a problem for them. Combine any insect(s) with any animal(s) any way you wish. (For the sake of this contest we'll consider spiders as insects, though formally belong to separate order Araneae). Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player.

Many women with short neck wonder what jewelry would make it look longer. Stylists recommend wearing long necklace which makes the neck look longer and gives overall slimming visual effect. Women with short neck or round face should avoid choker necklaces and loops or hoops since they will make their necks appear even shorter.
This is a sequel to the popular Neckless Celeb contest. Photoshop celebrities or politicians without necks one way or another. You are welcome to choose the "anatomical details" (e.g. whether you keep the mouth or remove it with the neck), but you should definitely remove the neck. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player.
