As human beings, we cannot stop looking at ourselves. In bathroom mirrors, in car window reflections, in the hollowed metal of spoons—we glance, peer, and pause at our features. Are we looking at our physical beauty or are we taken by our flaws? Do we look a little deeper, past the exterior and into the soul?

This week we found many sixes that deal with moments of self-reflection, from physical (“My hotness nullified by polar vortex.”) to emotional (“Never feel face is FaceTime ready”) or both (“All my favorite scars include you.”). Vanity is not a virtue, but this week’s best sixes communicate the very human need to observe and reflect.
