Instagrammers Are Callously Taking Selfies In Front Of This Dangerous Erupting Volcano

The fiery eruption of Mt. Agung in Bali has forced tens of thousands of people to evacuate their homes as lava, ash and carbon dioxide pose deadly threats. Unfortunately, Instagramming tourists seem to lack empathy for the island's residents, instead opting to gleefully take tacky and insensitive selfies and photos in front of the dramatic clouds of ash. 

Aspiring yogis and svelte women in barely-there bikinis (we've left most of these out) seem eager show off their prowess and skin in front of the potentially deadly disaster. It's incredibly insulting to the residents whose homes are in danger, and raises some serious questions about empathy and entitlement in the age of social media.

This Japanese Grandmother Has Completely Won Us Over With Her Wacky Self-Portraits

Earlier this week, Bored Panda shared the story of Kimiko Nishimoto, an 89 year old woman with a penchant for taking some seriously incredible self-portraits. The Japanese grandmother is relatively new to photography (she's been practicing for 17 years) but as you can see, she definitely has a knack for the art. Nishimoto's lively and humorous work is so popular that electronics giant Epson will be exhibiting her work in Tokyo. We won't be able to make it to Japan for the big show, so this collection of quirky "selfies" will have to do.

Best Of: Pictures of People Before and After Calling Them Beautiful Memes

In May 2015 photographer Shea Glover uploaded a video titled ""People react to being called beautiful" to Youtube. The video, which is exactly what it claims to be, has impressively gained over million views in two years. It wasn't until January 2016, when an image macro featuring screenshots of people and their reactions to the compliment, that people started meme-ifying the image. The meme has been going strong since its first exploitation (featuring Thom Yorke of Radiohead) - covering subjects from Pepe the Frog to Star Wars. These are our favorites.
