Green Room - Week 9 - Day 1

Last night was pretty busy. We had the results: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/892023.html

The new topics: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/892170.html

as well as a new Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/892470.html

and some pretty blatant references to the idea that a second chance may be coming soon.

I've been noticing a lot of the "flashing the V-sign" in pictures from teen and pre-teen girls. That sounds weird, unless I point out that I live with one. :) Then it's "Oh, Celena has hit the age where she's starting to get into the whole selfie thing".

I'll admit it, I've never quite understood the selfie craze. But I know there's an empowerment element to it (as well as a narcissistic element, which that blend pretty much describes "being a teenager") and it doesn't harm anyone so really what's the problem?

I was curious though, about what made people start making the V-sign, since I was pretty sure she wasn't telling the French to F-off because she still had her bow fingers. (and she isn't sure either other than "it's what you do")

So I looked it up this morning and figured I'd share it for anyone else who was wondering "when did this become a thing?" http://time.com/2980357/asia-photos-peace-sign-v-janet-lynn-konica-jun-inoue/

As it turns out, quite some time ago... but it took awhile to get back to the US mainstream!

I still want them to get off my lawn, but at least I kind of understand it. (still think it looks ridiculous. But I highly doubt that I'm the target audience of any of them, so who really cares what I think? :D)
