An extremely deceiving self-portrait taken from a limited number of specific angles where said person actually appears attractive. This photo style can hide such unattractive qualities as double chins, triple chins, excess “gumminess”, acne, quadruple chins, big noses, bad hair, no hair, obesity, and poor hygiene.
This effect can be quantitatively measured and is described by the following equation to solve for deceptiveness.
Deceit = (Angle of camera from horizontal) / (percentage of body shown) / (# of available profile pictures)
Note: Often taken using the reflection of a bathroom mirror.
You looked better in your myspace pic. And flush your toilet before your photo-shoot next time.
