Things your dumb friends post on facebook - Page 178

post #2656 of 5024
It's all kind of self congratulatory douchiness. I don't see what's wrong with it. It's kind of like telling your friends where you've been and what fun you've had this weekend only you do it virtually and share it with friends you won't see in a long time.

Yeah, I'm not an expert or anything, but, as an anecdote, I don't know any well-adjusted children of well-adjusted parents who still have pacifiers at that age. It always seems to be the kids of overly-permissive parents who don't give it up until way late.

The picture thing is a tough balance. Facebook is a great way to post some pics of the little ones as they grow, especially for me where most of my closest (in terms of relationship) friends and family are generally hundreds of miles away, but I try very hard not to post pics that are ridiculous or embarrassing. Truth be told, I tend to try to moderate the number of pics I post of my kid on Facebook in general, but I'm particularly careful not to post things that are outrageous.

Yeah, well, I wouldn't order a steak that's 30% fat, either.

If the second thing doesn't appeal to you (adjust the pose to fit your age bracket/friend demographic), I wonder what ever interested you in facebook in the first place.

The problem is people go vastly overboard with #2. For example, I have a friend who just went to a resort in Mexico for a week. During the trip it was literally endless updates (I counted 5 in one day and gave up counting after), and then the dump of 200 photos on facebook after. Not even your own mother gives that much of a shit. If you're going to post about your trip, pick a few things and a few pictures, not every thing you took. It goes from being "hey cool, steve is surfing in california!" to "jesus fucking christ steve took pictures of the ground and the water and uploaded them, what a fucking tool."

one douche fb "friend" I know has a doucheblog called "our restless feet"
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I actually know her husband, or rather what used to be her husband... they all went to orlando with the husband's family to bring all their nephews and nieces to disneyworld, universal and all that (paid for by the husband's family). the douchebitch and her husband stayed behind and did a tour of several national parks out west, renting a hybrid (of course she had to mention its a hybrid).... then posted in her fb:

really thinks visiting the US without stopping by their breathtaking National Parks is like going to the Philippines and staying in Manila the whole time. for real!

When you're single, you're exactly as happy as you are. When you're married, you can only be as happy as the least happy person in the relationship.

Buh? How does this work? I'm reminded of those game-theory thought experiments where the individuals in a group have to guess half the average of everybody's guesses, and so the average asymptotically approaches zero.

I think she's ready for teh tagutpeen.

So find a person who is generally happier than you and you're the limiting factor...

Sounds like a chic talking herself off a bridge and being single got her there.

The more disturbing implication is that they will never be that happy again, at least as long as they're with you. The lessened state of happiness you drag them down to becomes the limiting factor for all time. You both can only get progressively less and less happy in a sort of three-legged race to ultimate ruin. Boy, marriage sure sounds like a drag!

People really ought to learn not to post anything negative about their relationships on Facebook. Nobody wants to read that, and you've just aired your dirty laundry to everybody in a way that's very hard to take back.



I vaguely understand the point, although she's missing a lot. When your partner isn't happy, it does tend to make you less happy as well. But there's a big upside when things are going well, your aggregate happiness ought to be higher. If it isn't...you shouldn't be married. If you think you can never be happier in a relationship than single, why get married?

This is the church girl from earlier. Over the past few weeks she's continually plastered facebook with painfully forthright macro graphics shared from a seemingly endless supply of facebook groups whose very names forthrightly describe the state of her crumbling relationship at that moment.

The need for all this howling over lost love mystifies me, honestly. Just take the tagutpeen and the skies will open up for you.

I will give you $100 if you leave this message for her on her page. Except you cant call it the tagutpeen because she probably doesnt know about your screen name here. It does have to be clear you are talking aboutyou and your penis. Acceptable replacements = The Robweiner. the Robknob. My furious trouser snake. My cousin Vinny: AKA my funny ethnic penis.

saw a post on some guy's fb page- something like "tonight she's out partying with her friends. no one's taking care of our child... poor poor baby..." and he got a few replies, "so why don't you take care of your kid?"

saw this andy rooney on women over 40 post around yesterday, mostly from female relatives and friends over 40...

Andy Rooney says:

As I grow in age, I value women who are over forty most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over forty will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, “What are you thinking?” She doesn’t care what you think.

If a woman over forty doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it’s usually something more interesting.

A woman over forty knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of forty give a hoot what you might think about her or what she’s doing.

Women over forty are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.

A woman over forty has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn’t trust the guy with other women. Women over forty couldn’t care less if you’re attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won’t betray her.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over forty. They always know.

A woman over forty looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over forty is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one! You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over forty for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of forty-plus, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some twenty-two-year-old waitress.

Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free,” here’s an update for you. Now 80 percent of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig, just to get a little sausage.

then these ladies all go giving high fives to each other in comments. so I posted the snopes page saying andy rooney didn't say that shit:
Quote:
"It just bugs me that anybody would put my name on something I didn't write," said Rooney from his New York office. He's been the object of this kind of hoax before, and another, he said, had just crossed his desk.

I asked him if he shared the author's affection for older women, and he said, "Not particularly."

and I realize just how sad these ladies giving each other a pat on their back passing around this "article"... I mean how pathetic can you be for:
a. thinking andy rooney's a depository of knowledge and intelligent opinion, and
b. posting shit on line getting your panties in a bunch without even bothering to check if its real.

Is it any stupider than posting some supposedly feminist statement and attributing it to Marilyn Monroe?

And not to get sexist, but why don't men ever do shit like that? It always seems to be women doing it. It's mystifying.
