From technology to access to all the gadgets imaginable to make life run smoother, there’s so many advantages to living in the modern world, but sometimes it’s easy to wonder if things have gone a little too far.
They’ve been snapped by people who saw something strange and it made them question the reality we’re living in, and even their faith in humanity.
For instance, one motorist spotted a group of men stopping to take a selfie at the scene of a car smash, while elsewhere a woman posed to snap a picture while standing on the roof of a sinking car, proving that for some there’s nothing more important than social media likes.
In a similar vein, others despaired over a woman who paused to take a seductive picture while sprawled over a crucifix, while someone else’s heart sank at the sight of a bulletproof backpack for children.
