I've not bashed farcebook for a while, so i'm posting this so we can all laugh at people who use it.

http://tech.uk.msn.com/features/photos.aspx?cp-documentid=149713830

I quite liked the 2nd entry

Quote:

Logging onto your Facebook page midway through robbing a house, for instance, would be fairly high on our list of definite no-nos. Unfortunately for 19-year-old Jonathan Parker from Pennsylvania, that was a thought that, it seems, did not occur.

Police said Parker not only booted up his Facebook page while looting a neighbour's house but also forgot to log out, something which rather invevitably led to his court appearance last month on burglary charges.


Though the one after just sums up the mentality of people who use farcebook

Quote:

When two Australian girls aged just 10 and 12 found themselves trapped in a storm drain last month, they must have been understandably frightened. But does that explain their bizarre decision to update their Facebook status to ask for help rather than call emergency services?

Fireman Glenn Benham didn't think so, telling ABC News he was baffled why the girls should turn to social networking rather than dial Aussie emergency services number 000.

"If they were able to access Facebook from their mobile phones, they could have called 000," said Benham. "The point being they could have called us directly and we could have got there quicker than relying on someone being online and replying to them and eventually having to call us via 000 anyway."

This one is quite good as well.

Photographic evidence of someone being able to work when they were claiming sick leave with depression.

http://news.uk.msn.com/world/articles.aspx?cp-documentid=151003694

But now she is trying to get her benefits reinstated.

Quote:

She said her insurance agent described several pictures Ms Blanchard posted on Facebook, including ones showing her having a good time at a Chippendales bar show, at her birthday party and on a sun holiday.


I don't know anything about depression myself, so obviously she is capable of going out and having a good time at a Chippendales show during her birthday on some holiday, but incapable of bringing in a honest wage by going to work because that depresses her?

Would I look completely unsympathetic if I were to say 'join the rest of us?'

That's a bit harsh if you ask me! She could have been watching the strippers to cheer herself up!

Mind you, a person can work they have depression. It's not nice but I know many people who work and have diagnosed depression and they work fine. If anything, it helps them keep their minds off their problems.

I think this topic sums up what Minty has been jabbering on about for eternity:

http://pleaserobme.com/

Read the 'why' section, it sums it up well.

I is very paranoid now *looks around the room*

Indeed, just because they are crazy, doesn't mean that they aren't correct:)

Love that picture!

Which is one of the founding points of being able to put forward a good argument.

Attack the evidence, not the person.

Here however, I like to attack the people using facebook. A change is as good as a rest Very Happy
