Then please show me the ways of the Neo.
I want to know what love is! I want you to show me!
First off, change that avy. No one wants to look at an old white guy while reading your posts (aside from Conne)
In this culture of Steve Jobs worship, would it kill anyone to acknowledge my ironic, contrarian idolization of John Sculley?
and, by "Dumb Friends", I really mean me.
I used to send messages with a link to snopes to friends who posted things like that so as not to embarrass them publicly. After the same people posted the same obvious fabrications repeatedly, I realized public shaming is the only way to stop this.
I've found that when people have found an urban myth that they really want to believe, no amount of Snopes will sway them.
I got one a couple/few years back that was about how Snopes is a left-wing conspiracy and can't be trusted.
Wasn't sure where to go to discredit that one...
This is just basically the old "Animal 57" urban legend from usenet. It's always so odd when some piece of arcana from the internet's past pops up in Web 2.0 social media sites.
I really enjoy when someone post something similar but political in nature, a picture of a young GWB or Obama high fiving with Bin Laden, you show them the original photos and how it was manipulated, and all they can respond with is "Well it wouldn't be a stretch of the imagination for this to be real, which is telling."
I kind of want the KFC legend to be real, if only for the small chance that they break free, turn on their handlers and engineer some kind of Planet of the Apes- style dystopia
KFP - Kentucky Fried People
Speaking of planet of the apes...
James Franco was great in the Oz movie.
I always call it Unlucky Fried Kitten
U.F.K.? You're doing it wrong brah.
