Selfie sticks are inherently silly, but they somehow become even sillier when they get Photoshopped to replace guns in movie scenes. So instead of Clint Eastwood balancing his revolver in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, he's now angling a selfie stick to take a picture of himself smoking a cigar. Instead of menacing characters dueling off with guns in The Hateful Eight, it's two ridiculous people pointing a selfie stick in the snow. It's hilarious.

This is super cool, for both the slick visual effects we see and the clever behind the scenes work that allowed it to happen. Photographer Aaron Grimes made this video of Tokyo, IN MOTION, and blurred certain movements of the city and its people by stacking frames of multiple shots he took and then taking those stacked frames to create a video.

An all-girls high school student claims that her yearbook photo has been heavily altered to change her face in the name of "beautification".
