    I once had a discussion with a photographer here on dailykos about posting photos of minors at Occupy rallies.

    I asked if he got model's releases? Nope. Don't need them.

    Yes, but they're kids, and sometimes, their familes are just standing and watching from a distance. They don't realize they are being made part of "news."

    Nope, don't need them.

    Sigh.

    And I know exactly what you're saying too. I totally get it. There is no respect for other people's privacy. Tagging is the worst idea ever.

    Facial recognition software is so good, my editing software uses it to manage photos. I scanned an old photo of me when I was 18 months old. It dropped that photo into the file with all my other photos. It didn't even ask to confirm if it were me. That's decades ago. It recognized toddler me. The next photo it has of me, I'm about 30.

    Kids today don't stand a chance.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

      But seriously?

      Why not.

      How ironic is that?

        But dressing like a seriously devout Muslim woman? I guess it depends where you live.

        Being a hermit has more and more appeal with each day that passes.
