You might have noticed it was "Throwback Thursday" when you noticed all your friends and family posting nostalgic photos of themselves. Retired four-star Army General Colin Powell decided to share a selfie he took 60 years ago on his Facebook page. The caption reads "Throwback Thursday - I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks. Eat your heart out Ellen! The Ellen DeGeneres Show." This might be technically the first selfie in American history. I could be wrong.
