I got tagged on facebook by someone who got on my friends list because of a game I once played. I unfortunately didn't remove this person once I stopped playing the stupid game. Oh well I can only say that that was stupid on my part.
The thing that this creep tagged me on was what looked like a porn video and I asked him to remove me. His response was "Or what?"
Really? Or what. I'll tell you or what. I'll climb through that damn cloud and come out on your end and beat you with the thunderbolt I pulled out of that cloud I just climbed out of. You arrogant overbearing prick.
It amazes me that people are this stupid. It also amazes me that we friend people in a medium that allows God only knows who to connect with you and you don't take more precaution when you click accept.
Think about it. That one word has become the most dangerous word on the planet. It used to be 'pull' the trigger or 'push' the button but now it is the word 'accept'. With the click of the mouse you have allowed a stranger into your life. Now sometimes this pay off in a big way. You end up with a friend for life that you may or may not ever set eyes on but it's a gamble.
The other word that has now taken on a whole new level of apprehension for me is 'allow'. Think about it. You click something on your computer and the word 'allow' comes up and the next thing you know every setting on your computer has changed and you now are looking at some strange screen that you have no idea what it means. You're afraid to click on anything because you don't know if your computer will blow up in your face and they will find your body in a hundred pieces in your back yard with half your house. Even worse, you now have a virus on your computer. God forbid.
Now you have lost you connection to the outside world and can no longer communicate with anyone. God-forbid you have to get off your ass and go outside and actually have a face to face conversation with anyone. Hell we don't even like talking on our phones anymore because we had rather use text messaging than our voices. You do understand the concept of evolution don't you?
A hundred or so years from now we'll have all turned into great big-eyed heads with ten inch long fingers who no longer have voice cords and our ears are nothing more than two tiny little holes in the side of our heads. Our asses will have become flat as pancakes from our constant sitting and our legs will look more like chair appendages from where we have set so long with our legs wrapped around them that you will no longer be able to recognize what they were once or what they had been intended for.
I don't get the idea of preferring texting over talking. You turn what would be a five minute conversation into a text that could rival War and Piece but people will claim it is easier and more convenient because we can use stupid abbreviations like lol, 2G2BT, AFAIAA, and of course 420. For me 4/20 is merely my daughter's birthday. It's also Adolf Hitler's. That text can turn into a ten hour discourse but hey it was quicker and easier, right?
So while your sitting there turning future generations into flat assed, big-eyed, spinally shaped legs that look like adornments for chair legs with super long dangling fingered creatures think about this. Before you click on 'accept' next time maybe you should try to dig a little deeper into that person sending you a friend request. I have been doing it for a while but still haven't weeded out the people I think I might need to rethink. Happy dreams.
