If you'd care to adapt to the times you'd realize how much easier it is to meet and converse with people via social networking. If anything, I thought my fellow nerds and basement creatures would love Facebook; you don't even have to leave your basement to run laughably lame pickup lines on random girls!

Besides, you're making the assumption (as do many others) that people back in the day were so much more sophisticated or sociable than they are now. People have always hated each other; technology just makes it easier for us to shut others out today than it was 10 years ago.

Also, people still do all the things you listed. Facebook hasn't confined everyone to their computer chairs like WoW for popular kids.

Everyone has their own penis game. Some people actually do put stock in how many friends they have on Facebook, even though they've never met the majority of them. Us tabletop gamers have several; who's got a better painted army, who knows more fluff, who's a better player, who's got the most unkempt facial hair...the list goes on. You've made another assumption (as do many others) that you and your "clique" are less base and primal than the social kids you look down on with such disdain. All humans are animals, and we're all slave to the same drives.

I agree that the games are stupid, though.


I just saw the movie and thought it was pretty good. You could call it "the Facebook movie" in the same way you'd call 300 "the Democracy movie."

I wasn't a big fan of the holocaust, but Schindler's list is a pretty good film.

If you hate facebook so much that you would avoid watching a decent piece of cinema by association, then i think you care far too much about facebook.

For the record i don't have or intend to have a facebook account, and reading about the site generally annoys me. it's still just a website though.

Ah, the old gem "I don't agree with it, so it should never ever be created".

Stella, there's some Cheese in the post - it should go well with that whine.

I love facebook save money on long distance calling but personally you would have a better time shooting yourself in the foot then watch this movie. The only good game on FB is tetris because tetris is boss no matter where it is.

I wasn't too enthused about the film...and then I found out the guy who wrote 'The West Wing' and 'A Few Good Men' is involved. I'm probably gonna see it.
