How to make friends and alienate people...but mostly the latter.

Hello, I'm back with more hard hitting news stories that never happened but maybe will (fingers crossed) and my very opinionated opinion.  Today I'm going to opinionate about something that drives me absolutely crazy: those link things that people can "like" on Facespace (Due to copyright restrictions we can't actually use the word Facebook).  One that came upon my Facebook news-feed was, and I quote:
"No one is afraid of heights, they are afraid to fall; no one is afraid to play, they are afraid to lose; no one is afraid of the dark, they are afraid of what's in it; no one is afraid to say "I love you", they are afraid of the response."
Now aside from the obvious ridiculousness of it all, I want to take it apart piece-by-piece.   A) Let me start by saying I am afraid of heights, NOT of falling.  I don't actually have to worry about falling because I am much too afraid to go up to a point where I could fall in the first place.  Second, I'm not afraid to lose because I cheat at things.  So I'm gonna play because there is no chance, unless I grow a conscience, that I will lose.  Thirdly...or is it third?...thirdsies?...Next, I am afraid of the dark because I don't want to stub my toe on a chair, now that doesn't make me afraid of the chair which is in the dark...does it?  Finally, on to the most ridiculous one of them all.  The fear of "I love you" (or the response thereof).  The only reason I would be afraid of the response is if I was somehow drunk and said "I love you" to my friend Ralph...

Point being, these ridiculous, "deep-thinking" links that can be "liked" by people are just ridiculous...wait, I used that already...ummm...are just...jibber-jabberous...if you want to read something that makes you feel like a deep-thinker then read this blog...no, I can't say that we're very skin deep here.  INCREDIBLY shallow.

  1. Russ, we both analyze things so perfectly. This was perfect. An even greater start to my morning on top of the song I found myself listening to. (how is... beyond me)

    Also, I quite like how we both make side notes.
    (like this)
    As if we're talking out the side of our mouths at a lower volume to our friends (via inerweb)
