    Topic.

    For me it was reading on my Facebook that Donald Trump is on the verge of winning the latest Presidential debate.

    The man is a moron, if he gets in I officially give up on North America.

    I finally understand more about the bipolar spectrum after obsessively researching it.

    Facebook isn't a reliable source for anything except for misinformation and hurt feelings.

    Anyone who spends all their time on Facebook 7 days a week clearly doesn't have a life beyond social media IMO.

    Like I said on my thread earlier, I used to be like that but I have a life beyond the Internet in general now.

    On Tuesday I went in a Barber's up near work to get a haircut, in the end the guy wanted £15 for the cut, I was like, what?! So I bartered him down to £10, still too much for a haircut IMO.

    Someone in one of my classes told me that on the east coast there was a house giving out chocolate bars that had marijuana in them for Halloween. They later got arrested when the police started getting calls about it. Who would do something that stupid?

    Facebook is the pathetic battle arena of the perpetually offended, shrinkwrapped millenials. It is a mess.

    OK, I was having trouble understanding a generalization
    that facebook is a bunch of fools because I was thinking
    in particulars. Each person's batch of facebook friends
    depends on who that person has accepted as a fb friend.

    That was what was throwing me off.
    It is not necessarily true that every person who uses fb is
    a fool.

    It is true that many people use facebook for oddly passive-
    aggressive statements which they don't even write
    themselves/memes that they find outstandingly pertinent,
    as well as supplying their own flaming nonsense.

    I am not defending them.
    I am not defending people who don't do that.

    I was just trying to understand the statement.
    Now I get it.
    It was a generalization.

    My point, which is very hard to refute, is that Facebook strongly tends to bring out the worst, not the the best in its users. There is abundant and overwhelming evidence of this.

    I use Facebook daily, but my block list is almost as big as my friend list, most days I comment on various news stories, sometimes Political, and get flamed/insulted for my views, so more often than not I report/block the flamer, so that they can't insult me any more.

    Don't get me wrong I'm not against being insulted, but some people just go too far, that's when they get reported/blocked.

    These girls watching the "Pink Elephants on Parade"scene from Dumbo.
    (During the video and in the comments, the girls reveal they've been doing Cannabis (Pot) before they watched the scene)
