    Teens kids, adults -- and, cough, cough even President Obama -- take selfies everywhere -- from funerals to math class. But some colleges are getting tougher on the practice of posing for your own pics and then posting them to accounts like Instagram by actually banning selfies from graduation. It's an amazing interesting idea, but one you have to question, given everyone's obsession with photos of themselves. Are you asking for too much when you ask young people to keep their phones home on one of the most important days of their lives?

    A new video going viral is the subject of much debate and shock. In the clip, a teen in headphones attempts to take a selfie from what he seems to think is a "safe distance" from the train tracks. As the locomotive whizzes by, he's seemingly struck in the head by the train conductor, who stuck his leg out and delivered a swift kick to the teen's head and neck. Whoa.

    Yep, you pretty much just have to see it to believe it ...

    It's hard to imagine there was a time when you could break up with someone or be broken up with and then never, ever have to see his horrible, beautiful, heartbreaking face again. Ah, what a comfort it must have been to be able to cry for a day, talk it out with friends, and then know you could move on. There was no high-tech way of keeping tabs on that person, and even if you heard through the grapevine that he had a new girlfriend or wife, you could make it through life without viewing 100 photos of her and knowing hair that shiny actually exists outside of a shampoo commercial.

    Boy, are those days gone. It's now pretty much possible to locate and stalk every boyfriend you've had since kindergarten. Not that you plan on doing this, of course, but here are 7 websites that have made it super easy for "ex-boyfriend stalking" to become an international sport and for no one to ever fully get over and past the ... well, the past.

    Every day around lunchtime, I am slapped in the face with a huge pang of food envy. While my family does get delicious dinners, my midday meals pretty much suck. I’m a decent cook, and my daughter even claims that I’m the best chef in the whole wide world, but during my busy workday, lunch becomes a necessity rather than a meal to savor. This is when the food jealousy creeps in.

    While scanning through my friends' Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook feeds, I am left salivating after seeing photos of the amazing, beautiful food they eat for lunch. I should add that I have many a food blogger in my inner circle, so they're pros at making incredible meals and sharing the results online. So there I am. Staring at my own, lame lunch --which 9 times out of 10 is quinoa, hummus, lettuce, and egg. Yes, it may be healthy, but it ain’t pretty. And it's almost always the same.

    Thank heaven for the hysterically funny new "Sad Food" trend!

    D'oh! Wait until you hear this one. There's a rumor going around that Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis' final pick is sharing a nude photo of his, ahem, package to her friends -- I guess in an effort to brag about the hunka-hunka burnin' love who now solely belongs to her.

    Don't worry -- I'm not going to reveal her name or dish out any other sorts of spoilers, so you can keep reading.

    According to RadarOnline, Juan Pablo's lady is sharing the photo via text. The pic is so raunchy, I almost feel kind of ashamed and dirty just talking about it.

    Remember President Obama's Selfie-Gate? I know -- you were trying to forget. Well, it got us wondering. Surely he's not the only world leader to take a selfie. Aren't there others snapping awkward photos of themselves? For the people? Welp, sure enough, there are! And you wouldn't believe who we found...

    I've spent many of my kids' growing-up years working online, with the last few positively engrossed in social media, even more than the typical parent.

    And while I've posted a few potentially mortifying photos of my children in the past, for the most part, I'm extremely careful about what pictures of my kids I put online -- whether it's on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or another site.

    If only other parents would do the same. Here's why it bothers me so much.

    Instagram is by far my favorite picture-sharing social media site. The filters make your pics look awesome, it’s easy to scroll through, and you can upload to both Twitter and Facebook at once if you so choose to.

    It’s also sort of become selfie-centric in a lot of ways, since the best way to prove you were somewhere exciting, or did something important, or even just put makeup on is to document it. But there are some selfies that just don’t belong on Instagram. In fact, you shouldn’t even take them, let alone post them.

    One woman was very unhappy to get dumped. So unhappy that she reportedly tracked down pictures of her ex-boyfriend's new fiancee on social media, Photoshopped them onto naked and sexy bodies, and then set up fake profiles for the woman on Russian sex sites -- oh, and then for good measure, sent the photos and profiles around to her ex-boyfriend's friends and family. (Note to self: This is not the way to get an ex back.) The ex, a man named Emmanuil Sadikov, is now suing her for $5 million.

    Wow. Out of all the things we expected to be all too familiar with by the time 2013 came to a close -- Miley Cyrus' tongue was probably the lowest on the list.

    Sure ... we were already well acquainted with her side-boob and also her derriere -- thanks to the fact that she doesn't always feel the need to put on pants.

    And while we've truly gotten to know her tongue in photo after photo after photo, I don't think we've been able to fully appreciate it ... until this Twitter pic of Miley and Cara Delivingne touching tongues surfaced.

    (You know ... Cara Delivingne. The model who was rumored to be dating Harry Styles before Kendall Jenner sunk her teeth into him.)
