A funny thing happened on the way to the internet the other day...

I'd had enough of that scoundrels den known as facebook. Never one good memory from it. Always dire insights into the worlds of people who I thought I knew. Relationships that were made of lies and deceit, friendships based on a single post in some random group or page.

I deactivated it.

The first tinges of not seeing the plethora of random meaningless memes, was noticed first. Then the... well nothing else, really. I'd cut my family off from there as they were as brainless as one brain split between an amoeba and a quantum particle, arguing "how does not it linda?" "Coz pam, u are too young at 42 to no better" type debates - oh and the incessant "LIKE MY PAGE AND WIN AN IPOD" posts they'd share.. my family.. I'm the ugly ducking.

But cut right out. I was only ever there at the behest of a sweet girl I knew from here, long long ago, who invited me to a special group, for when ATS was being under constant attack... it shall remain nameless, lest those witches who proclaim all authority start stirring their goat filled cauldrons.

I remained only for the silliness of it. Till one day I realised, it had taken over everything else.

I can't just google a thing and be content, nor watch a thing and be sufficed. No, I had to pause those things to go see who had posted some inane bollocks in the mean time! And when there were no new posts, comments, likes, or otherwise wanking pleasure, I was depressed..

So I decided, after discussing, no, debating, no, arguing, no, screaming, no, outright abusing each other with my ex, I'll just deactivate my account.

I feel healthier, stronger, have more stamina, my erogenous zones are increased, virility enhanced, and best of all, I CUT ALL THAT # OUT!!!!

Now when I'm sitting on the toilet, I actually read the news paper. And skip to Calvin and Hobbes.

No more "they didn't even like my post, I will make sure I show them. Never liking their posts again. a-holes."

Try it.

Don't fall for this "In 5 days you'll feel better after quitting facebook." -- that crap is a blatant lie.. It can happen in as easy as 3 days.

I have no where else to post now

Oh wow!!!

Facebook is a tool, just like your google search engine. You train it.
If you're getting junk it's YOU.

No harm picking what tool work for you or which ones don't.

I like google search. It seems to know exactly what I'm looking for. And that is better than all those other, things, you know, with their fidgy widgy asking me what it is I am looking for things...

Don't you dare disparage google. I'll have you know, I used google once, to navigate home. I .. I didn't know how to use it, but it was there. IT WAS THERE.. Unlike the person driving. never take a car that is not yours. not only, well.. not only will they find you.. but.. haha, you'll be arrested.

I used to go through periods of not using facebook - too many dramas and crap - didn't need that in my life but since March Last year I have used it once or twice every few months or more. Mostly to check if relatives overseas have sent me any family news.

After nearly 10 years by 2017 I really had enough.

I still play Neopets though, for the last 17 and a half years... no bad drama in wholesome happy land

I've gone through stages of not using it.. this is a permanent change.
No family I care about, and friends I could hear less of how their lives are.

Works for some in some things.

But ultimately, it's a detriment.

I try to think back when I didn't have it at all.. I used it simply as an easy way to comment on other forums with a login feature. That's all it will be for me.

stonker... the bane of existing things.

Funny thing, if you search winofiend and google he's still around as a person who was so upset at youtube being taken over by google.. haha..


"Since it was the `people' that made YouTube, why aren't they being paid billions?" wrote a user named winofiend.

You've been on it for this long? I stopped about 6 years ago.

Yep.. I share your feelings. Facebook is somewhat like gambling with an exception.

I don't do casinos 'cause if I'm going to throw my $$ away? It's gonna be off my porch so I can pick it back up.

With FAKE-BOOK? You can't get anything BACK once you play.

So I DONT!

I said I just poke at my ex....
And within minutes she replied with blunt force trauma about how I am a pervy pokey dude who should, no, must remove his post before her family sees it. Ugh.... Woe is me.
