Since we are all energy, we are all One. And so all those people *really* would have been calling themselves Dick Suckphen. The joke was on them in the end, not just on Dick.

I fucking hate travel brags. do these people travel so they can post it in fb?

one travel brag fb friend of mine reposted this decal print on her page, asking her husband "what do you think?"... do they not talk at home???

There's a big population of FB denizens that think FB is solely for travel bragging and posting pictures of food. Curiously, they all live in Asia and New York

Well, also so they can clobber visitors to their home over the head with it as well, apparently.

That wall decal reminds me of one of Conan O'Brien's old "alternative cable channels" segments, where one of the channels was "Places I've Never Had Sex", which was just a guy standing in front of a map, pointing out all the places he's never had sex.

Congratulations on being so accepting of the sexuality of your gay toddler!

I wonder if the lilac-colored walls had anything to do with it, or if someone just adjusted the hue slider.

DC is overrun with that type of person. Everybody just LOVES to travel and they go to the most deliberately exotic locations. If it has flush toilets it's too mainstream.

More likely the fact that the kid will start kindergarten in September, and he's still got a pacifier.

Also, I'm sure teenage Child of the Most Open-Minded and Progressive Parents Ever is really going to appreciate his parents using a picture he will almost certainly find to be profoundly embarrassing when he's a little older to show the internet what awesome parents they are.

1. I have absurdly little experience in dealing with children, but it struck me as odd that a kid that old had a pacifier.
2. I see parents posting embarrassing pictures of their children all the time on Facebook. I don't understand why they do that.

If tools would stop liking such posts, then these insufferables will stop posting the shit.

The problem is that they have a whole circle of similar self-congratulatory friends, who have to give them props for their awesomeness in selecting travel destinations.

I think some of you guys are sort of missing the point.

This is what facebook is for. Posting ill-informed memes is dumb, but posting stuff about cool travel destinations is kind of what facebook is for. Why is there a photo section if not for this? I admit that some people go way overboard on it, but its a nice way to see whats up with someone. You can see what they've been up to without having to invite them over and sit through an hour of travel slides, you can wax nostalgic over that spring break trip you took with your buddies in 2006 (now even easier thanks to timeline I guess), and you can check back for travel ideas for your own trips. Unlike baby-brags and reams of engagement photos, travel posts might actually be useful to others.

It is infinitely better than people starting their shitty one-off travel blogs and then emailing out reminders all of the time "did you read my travel blog? Did you see my post from this monument?".

Was facebook ever anything more than this? Before the newsfeed and timeline, it may have been meme-free, but it was always just a repository of photos about hobbies (be that going to crazy parties, or travelling) and bitching posts about obligations (school or work).

That is to say:

Rich Kids of Instagram style travel posts = dumb.

Teddy and Joe eiffel towering Christine in front of the Eiffel Tower = Facebook.

If the second thing doesn't appeal to you (adjust the pose to fit your age bracket/friend demographic), I wonder what ever interested you in facebook in the first place.

The only part that bothers me is the self-congratulatory doucheyness. Posting "Hey I went to X" is cool.
