Hey

So, I guess everyone on the interwebz now has a blog, so i guess that means I should have one too. It's funny, the internet makes everyone anonymous, but it seems like that makes everyone craze attention even more. Being anonymous has made everyone want facebooks, myspaces, tumblr's, twitters, and blogs. So, once their entire life is easy to see by clicking on a few pages, they add anyone and everyone who has ever taken the time to see them eating at a different table at a restaurant once. It's retarded how many "friends" people have on facebook and such sites, when in reality they probably know like 20 of them really well. tops. Besides making everyone attention whores (me included, obviously), it has made everyone need vastly bigger and better and more grotesque, shocking, etc things to get their attention. I remember when "shocking" was tubgirl... *shudder*... then rotten.com, then nothing. I know i sound old, but its true, the shit people post today, and dont even blink an eye at, its amazing. I mean, go on any forum that allows adult content, and you'll see the depraved shithole the internet has started to become in order to receive the attention people so crave. But hey, im no better, im posting a fucking blog, ranting and raving like my thoughts actually mean something. Anyways, in a sea of anonymous it is interesting to see how people fight for an identity, while at the same time reveling in the mask that being anonymous allows them to have.

  5. We need to get back to our roots. Maybe sometimes people just need to club somebody to death and have intercourse with a neanderthal woman in a cave while eating raw flesh. That might satisfy our sick habits

  6. What really scares me is how people can now add their schools, employers and whatnot on facebook. I don't get why anyone would fill those out, I mean, why would I let any random person read my CV?
    Anyway, you make a good point, everyone is attention whores on the internet, why else would I make a status update on facebook every once in a while? Certainly not for my own sake, then I would be writing a diary...

  7. Sounds like someone has been thinking :D
    I agree, although before in time everyone used to have tons of acquaintances too, by talking to many people you didn't even know too well in your local town. This is the chit-chat of the globalization

  13. Some mad stuff on the internet. I've seen forums with people asking for advice on a problem they're having with their computer, and instead getting convinced to delete important system files and destroying their computer beyond repair. Yikes!

  27. You got totally right, everyone want's atention. For what? for few words on blog, fb, twit, other... Cybernetic life sux, but in fact it is great way to communicate with friends who leave country for job or other friends who lives far away. In my opinion it is like coin, got two sides.
