    I dunno, it's pretty easy for me. I've never been big into sharing my pictures online, except for my tumblr blog when I had the time or motivation to manage it. If it's something I want my friends to see, I just casually send them the pic. So yeah, the social media side of this isn't at all an issue for me. I would recommend people to stay away from sharing pictures online, unless they're actually into photography. Even then, upload it for yourself rather than to show it off to others. Otherwise it can mess with your head.

    You can take pictures for yourself, though, to catalogue your life. As I said, I used to have a tumblr blog for my photography, but that was more of an artsy project. Otherwise, I have a personal Google Map where I mark every single place I've been to and attach pictures to the markers.

    As for being in the moment vs documenting – also easy. Just don't take pictures every second? I photograph whatever I like without worrying much about how the picture comes out. I like lo-fi photography after all. Photography is also my hobby, so it doesn't take a way from the experience I'm having. Not everyone's a photographer – I get that. So I'd just recommend to try not to care about pictures as much. If you're spending more than 1 minute for a picture, you're probably doing something wrong.

    They keep cutting off each other and won't wait for the other to make their point clear… Made it harder and longer to reach their point… Adding more confusion to non-english speaker like me haha :'"") Great topic tho!

    I worry about this a lot with my niece! She's only 16 months as of today, and I've noticed I don't take as many photos of her as I do of landscapes/monuments. I definitely value the IRL experience over photographs, but because I'm going blind, I think I'm biased towards the memories. Especially people-based memories, like how someone sounds, or smells, or their lil gestures. They all mean so much, and can't be captured in photos.

    My god link, just never think about uploading ANY picture, when you are capturing it. Then when you are looking at them at a later date, is when you make the decision if you want to upload or not.

    I think I'm with Link on this one, you should take at least one photo to remember a moment. But you shouldn't let that moment pass you by, because you're to focused upon taking the photo. #Earbiscuits

    I'm more like Rhett, where I take photos and then decide later if any of them are instagram-worthy. I generally take about 3-4 quick shots, which takes maybe a minute at most. This is for times when I'm being in the moment.
    Of course, sometimes the objective is to take pictures, in which case I will try to frame them well and take far more (but of a variety of subjects, say several different flowers in my garden), whether or not they're going on Instagram, or if I just want them for my personal use. I almost always decide after the fact what I'm going to do with them.

    I miss disposable cameras, I always had fun seeing my pictures developed. The last one I ever had developed was a few years ago and all the pictures came out grainy and terrible. =(

    Bringing a camera, separate from your phone, is a great way to capture moments while still remaining distant from your digital life.

    i’m so thankful for this conversation right now. lost my grandmother not even two months ago and i’m losing my grandfather any day now. i’m a very reminiscent person and i feel so bad because most of the pictures i have with them are from years and years ago. but this conversation opened my mind and i’m glad it came out when it did.❤️

    DO NOT use spider spray. the chemicals are terrible plus its a slow painful death rather than ending them immediately

    Best hot sauce on the planet: KFC hot sauce. It can be drank…and i do drink it. I drink at least 2 packs before i get to eat if i go through the drive through or get it to go. You know how random sauce packs can accumulate in your fridge? Well all of the packs in mine are all KFC hotsauce.

    Hey Link, there are actual "hiking poles" that are not ski poles. Watch "Wild" with your wife starring Reese Witherspoon (based on a real story)

    As a photographer, taking a good picture takes no more time than taking a bad one if you know what you're doing, sure someone might look bad, but there's a reason not every photo is worth keeping, but putting in the effort is always worth it. Snapshots can be good photographs if they have an element of design. If it's a bad photo you're not going to want to look at it, so take the time to take a nice picture, especially if you're just taking 1 or 2 photos.

    Honestly I haven't ever cared for podcasts, but Ear Biscuits is amazing. I've watched these guys for so many years and its comforting just to hear them talk about their lives. Keep it up

    "I feel bad for her, she just lost her husband"… Link, let me tell you a little story on how she "lost" her husband. It all started when she ate him. The end.

    I almost never take pictures. I feel too detached as it is so pics really kick me out of the loop. I'd rather just be fully present (as much as I can be) than take pics.

    I've got to say I'm on Link's side on this one. Making an over-production really takes from the moment and in my experience, the candid pics are the ones that hold the most emotional attachment.

    Here's my argument: Rhett says not to anthropomorphize the spider and feel bad for it. On the other hand, he anthropomorphizes the spider by saying it gets the "bright idea to attach to his house." The spider doesn't know its your house. For all he knows its a tree. It's not personal. In that sense, the spider kind of deserves to be captured and released. That's just why I personally prefer to release spiders. I don't think it's immoral for Rhett to kill spiders, I just wanted to point out the invalidity of the argument I guess.

    Well about ten years ago there was an option with developing film to get the photos digitally on a CD. So a disposable camera, if you don't have a separate digital camera might not be a bad idea.

    I actually wish we had videos of my kid's births, half for the kids (I'm someone who shows them birth videos any way) and half for medical. I didn't get to write down the story right away then it starts to get fuzzy and it can be important to remember details for the next birth. It's way faster to either record your voice telling a story or video-ing it than writing about it.

    like when im at a show or concert or something, there's n o t h i n g I hate more than those people who film the entire thing on their phone. I usually only take ONE or TWO videos while im there, because I paid for the ticket and experience and I'm GOING to experience it! That said though, I'll take multiple videos if I'm somewhere one of my friends or partner couldn't be. I still won't film the WHOLE show, but more than usual.

    I can only imagine what the library would be like to live other people's memories, like 600 years from now you can actually see the past; however, I'm with Link on living in your own past or any past is not healthy, I think the point would be to learn

    I think one nice photo of an event is important and a good way to ensure that you aren’t missing out on making the best memory that you want to remember!

    So you stripped off all your clothes, rubbed leaves on you, stuck your phone in a crevice and just wandered. Three days later, you're the lead story on evening news. They have video of you naked with poison ivy rash all over especially under your arms where you were "erasing deoderant." The man said, "Well, I got lost, couldn't find my phone. They tracked my phone but I wasn't there…" Headline: "Father of three has mid life crisis and breakdown in woods." 😀

    Rhett needs to see the movie Brainstorm. They have a system that records memories/experiences and other people can experience them.

    It's okay, Rhett. Look at the views on Ear Biscuits. I feel like only the most mythical of beasts watch/listen, and therefore, I think most of us know and accept your view on killing pests that venture into your domain.

    ‪As someone with memory problems I agree with Link a lot more here, I can’t always recall an event so pictures help me remember that event a lot better or even at all
