I would but the lunch rush still going on right now to the nearest place that sells pizza is preventing me from obtaining such a dish. Surprisingly enough this obstacle does not inhibit the ability to acquire breakfast burritos.

i've got a myspace and a facebook. who give's a fuck? GAWD, why don't non-geeks just learn to geek out and code up their own blogs and CMS and create their own ways to keep in touch with people like all us fuckin nerds? how DARE they take advantage of the tools people provide them! how DARE they!

I used to deride the social networking users, until a couple of members here raised some excellent points:

I don't use them myself, but can see their value to others.

One of my questions about social networking is this: Are you really really that close to a majority of your friends? Or do you feel like you should be that close to them right now? I've got a lot of people on my list that I've had real good times with and would call them a "best friend" at some point in life, but we never talk anymore because of the way of life. Don't even have to since their pages have all the info I need. For me, I guess it's a toss between keeping up with people, or developing relationships with the people that are are within your current vicinity.

harder to fake being a young person on facebook....

most of my friends are pre-opening up days,
and then if you find someone with absolutely no connection to you,
no familiar friends, no 6 degrees of seperation,
you know they are a creeper and want to stick their thing where it shouldn't be.
