I know I'm always a bit peeved when women show up naked but don't bring food. What good is it having a naked female in front of you without a zucchini?


*JQ has some photos on facebook of his very cute little one. I imagine he's suffering from sleep deprivation these days.

I agree. I think there are ways to be on facebook without buying into the whole thing...I think unfortunately it's a little more than a fad at this point.

Being on facebook doesn't make anyone a better person. The same can be said for anyone choosing not to join that site. Thinking you're above such silly things as having an fb page is kind of silly in itself.
The specific "gadgets" of what you can and can't do here on GT are different than facebook, but in its essence this site is also a place to communicate socially too. That's what we're doing right now on the forum.

The huge popularity of fb may come and go, but social networking sites are here to stay. As technology changes the form and structure of these sites will change, but having a place to communicate and network with friends and family is now a permanent part of our technologically driven world.

It's up to the individual to use any social networking site wisely. For sure people put up stupid things on fb, but that can be done anywhere. Once I put up something really stupid here. : ) The existence of fb doesn't cause stupidity, it's just a means to instantly share your stupidity to the world. Stupid people would find another venue to express themselves if that site wasn't around.

I hesitated for a LONG time to get on there. It was only because of arm twisting from some friends to join a group from a special study program in college I attended that I was persuaded to join. What I quickly found out is that high school and college friends, past close friends from the northland, immediate family, long lost cousins and relatives, and even some of my good GTer friends were there. It gives me a another way to stay in touch with these people, and that's a very good thing.
It also helped jump start my desire to "make it" as a cartoonist when I made my Addison page.

So I've come to the conclusion that not being on fb is cool, if that's your bag.
However bagging on fb and broadly dismissing it as just another worthless "internet fad", as if you're above such petty behavior is unjustified. Like so many other things available to us in life it's all a matter of what you do with it that makes beneficial or hurtful.

(enter Kuro) For what it's worth. : )

  Excellent post Addi.
It's almost as if you read my mind as I was thinking exactly the same thing and have had much the same Facebook experience as you. It's amazing how many long lost friends and relatives I've been in touch with on there.

what. ever. sometimes its alright to look at other girls, especially if you let us look too (or bring the other girl home for some crazy fun)

They can keep each other busy while I go get a snack.

>>give her lots of attention, but expect little yourself
>bullshit.
This is a matter of keeping a balance between respecting their space and wanting to be with them all the time.

>>52. give her lots of time, especially time for herself
>more bullshit.
same as above.

>>53. give her lots of space, never worrying about where she goes
>i like a man to be concerned about me. 'sides, if i'm going someplace cool, i'm likely taking you with me.
Concern is one thing, but not obsessing is key to not being a psycho. Time together is great, but distance is healthy.

>i would not only bring food, but i would cook it myself. while naked.
If it was take-out, I'd worry about how you happened to pick it up so naturally. Naked bacon-frying is no bueno.

No I didn't, Kira and I should have said that. It was your "internet fad" comment that got me thinking. I have no idea what you really think of fb users.

It was an over stated response to all the times I've heard those kind of "worthless" remarks from people referring to fb in particular, acting like they're just too good to lower themselves to that level.
Like I said, if someone thinks it's not for them then that's fine. Personally I don't "twitter" and have no desire to ever start.

Actually I thought Addi's post was a response to Libra's unfortunate use of the word "unfortunately".

aHA! back onto topic.
bookcrossing is fun. you release your books into the wild, and if people co-operate, you can track them, to see where they go. I kept my eyes peeled for over 5 years before giving up on finding a book crossing book. i figured it was just an american thing. literally 2 days later, i found one in a food court. its a nice feeling (it was a crappy book, but i read it cover to cover, just on principle)

Oh, no! I agree wholeheartedly with addi's post. I just meant that, for many who see Facebook as something 'bad' to avoid, they probably won't be able to because, if anything, it's only becoming more and more a part of communication today.
Remember, it used to just be a way for college students to keep in contact with their classmates. I liked it a lot better before it had such powerful 'stalking' capabilities. There never used to be a news feed, and the built in advertisements geared towards your interests didn't used to be there.

I do see problems behind the medium, which maybe is more pronounced for college students--I think it has allowed my generation to really not stay as connected with each other, and to claim some kind of connection with those who they haven't actually seen/spoken with for years. This is kind of ironic, because for older generations, it has allowed them to reconnect (and truly reconnect) with people they had 'lost.'
Facebook can also cause quite a bit of drama.

I found one of these books! I didn't read it though (it was too terrible looking). But I did re-release it into the wild for someone else to find.

On the right-hand side? You don't have them? Surveys and all kinds of ads that are geared towards what your actions are on the site and your interests?
