Why for 30 days I’ll be thanking instead of thankful

A few years ago I started noticing the 30 Days of Thankful posts popping up in my Facebook feed. They usually started similarly with people expressing gratitude for their family and friends. People then progressed to their jobs, cars, homes, vacations, and, sometimes, even cellphones. You can probably note the diminishing trend that led to month’s end postings about how ... Read More »

You know these people. You may be one or several of these people. The saying goes that, “Hell is other people.” Well, nowhere has more people than Facebook.

The Secret to Facebook

I’ll never understand how Alf faded away as a cultural icon. Why isn’t he seeing a resurgence of popularity like the Muppets? Sure, he isn’t nearly as funny, but…oh, well, never mind.

God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

Sharing Is Not Caring

It seems like every couple of months there’s an overhaul to a major Facebook feature and people freak out in response. I’m not entirely sure why people pretend to care about how they receive their status updates, when in truth Facebook is just there to feed into their narcissistic worldview. I suppose anything that inhibits that is frustrating. Now, if ... Read More »

The Power of Vague

Vague Facebook status updates just about ruin it for me. Even worse, some people I really like are the worst offenders. Look, if it’s too personal to post about in any detail, then it’s probably too personal to post about even vaguely. Not everything has to be shared. Except crabs. You should probably let others know you’re afflicted. For safety ... Read More »
