I agree with you. Unfortunately there seems to be right many folks that never grow out of the "any attention is good attention" phase of childhood.
They cling to it and the rest of us are usually stuck trying to avoid them, not always being really successful in this technological age we live in
To OP... People like this have always existed, they just seemed to usually KNOW better than to brag about it. It was kept behind closed doors. People
might have whispered about "so and so", but most of the time people knew where the "not in public" line was drawn. That line is all but
nonexistent these days I think. Weird folks can congregate online and not feel quite so weird anymore. Sometimes that is a good thing...a lot of the
time it should have stayed private.
I can only ASSume that most of them do it for the reason I stated above. Any attention is good attention. I generally don't care for any kind of
attention myself, so I have a hard time understanding people like this.... but I know TONS of them exist. We see them all the time. Common sense is in
short supply when people get online most of the time. It's like the power button on their PC's automatically drop their IQ's 50 or more points and
that number increases with every half hour they do not get up afterwards.
I saw a video last night of a guy who thought (with friends now... not alone. can't be stupid on your own. got to have company.) that it would be
funny to stick firecrackers in the pierced holes of his ears and light them. Blood was pouring out of his ear after they went off.... I don't get it.
He looked to be about 30/35 well old enough to know better one would think. But alas, he got views and I guess that counts for something these
I think it will only get worse as time goes on.
