I don't really do a lot with Facebook when it comes with interacting with individuals. I've found its a very handy tool for keeping track of various comic book and pop culture websites I like to follow but individuals? Eh, not so much.
One reason is that there are people on Facebook who are leading far more interesting lives than I am. I really do not need a constant reminder that my life sucks compares to yours. Oh, look! An excursion to the mountains! Water skiing! Eating at classy restaurants! Yes, your life is amazing, mine is shit, I get the point!
Another reason is that there are people on Facebook who are leading far less interesting lives that I am. Hey, I see you posted that you just watched a couple of episodes of Big Bang Theory and are getting ready for bed? And I should care... why?
But the big problem I have with individuals on Facebook is that so many of them are... how can I put this politely?
No, I can't. So many of them are stupid.
No, I'm sorry. I shouldn't say that.
So many of them are fucking stupid.
Yeah, that's better.
Yes, I know we all have different perspectives on life and I do try to be understanding of that. But there are some posts that just irk me for their blatant disregard for objectivity and the facts.
I do not follow Annika Bruggeworth on Facebook but someone I do follow liked this inane post and this is how it came to my attention.
And I will make no apologies for that.
Wednesday is Comic Book Day here on the ol' blog thing as i put down in words how wonderful Rebirth is.
And also how disturbing.
Thursday is another installment of The Pixar Project as the family here at the Fortress of Ineptitude continues our Pixar re-watch with Toy Story 2.
Until next time, remember to be good to one another.
