    Wait a minute, is not any photograph inherently "historic"?:sneaky: I'm amused at how loosely the term is used.

    Imagine in future when people will look at our time in history.... Lots of historical pictures such as selfies from 500 different angles.

    There is, to me, a very fine line between historic and historical. That line my be only in my head...

    True. That's interesting. Not to deviate from the topic, but I wonder what effect it will have on languages. In a thousand years, people will know exactly what 2018 brazilian portuguese sounded like. Maybe all these videos (and internet data) floating around will have a stabilizing effect on linguistic change on many levels - graphic, phonetic, lexical etc.

    Historic photos are important. This de-classified shot from the navy gave George Lucas the idea for Star Wars. Amazing how different uniforms were back then!

    You may not have seen these leaked images of reverse engineered Xwings now in common use:

    The absolute winner though for most loosely used term has to belong to the word 'genius'. IMHO

    A picture of Lincoln giving the Gettysburg address is historic, the selfie of you eating lunch out on the deck is not.

    I suspect that a quick trawl of Instagram to find out what the Kardashians are doing today would probably prove to all of us how few photos taken this last week will ever qualify for the description "historic".

    And +1 to what circles said! WTF is all that about? :D

    Stabilizing? Lolwhut.

    You've seen how young people talk online. Every generation comes up with new and exciting ways to abuse the language. Already no one speaks formal written English. As society continues to segment, we'll have whole new languages that are totally incomprehensible to old people. The best we can hope for is that in 80 years no one will know or remember or care what a "Cumberbitch" is.
