Picture perfect

Say cheesy: Not content with selfies and red-eye snapshots, some folks these days are hiring professional photographers to document not just special events like weddings, but their everyday lives. In this way, a sociology professor explains, they can present flattering images of themselves on social media.

You’ll spoil your supper: Dunkin’ Donuts has launched a new line of sandwiches that it calls “snacks,” not lunch. “We’re not moving into lunch. We’re in snacking. We never talk about lunch,” the chain’s CEO says.

And after a few of Dunkin’ Donuts’ 660-calorie “snacks,” The Buzz wouldn’t be talking about lunch, either — we’d be talking about hitting the gym, followed by a nap.

Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1770, Capt. James Cook discovered the Great Barrier Reef when his vessel ran into it.

That’s pretty much the same technique Washington state ferries use at the dock on every run.
