So FaceBook apparently passed two billion users at some point recently. To celebrate, they instructed robots to make a vomitous short film starring nightmarish cartoon figures, creepy music and pictures of me from my various profile pictures. It concludes with a montage of my friends’ profile pictures swirling around me.


I can’t show you it, though. They didn’t actually make one for Stoaty. I guess I don’t log into that account enough. Apologies if you’ve tried to reach me there.

Two billion. What a world.

So, are you going to fly a flag in face of British Conservatism? You know, the Red, White and Blue of The American National Emblem… how does that go over in Ye Merrye Olde?
You have GOT to do something with this même:
America: BrExit 1776

Yeah, hope you’re celebrating. Fly a flag, bbq some meat, corn on the cob, ice cream, etc. You can even cook those god awful baked beans you love.

Don’t trust the 2 billion. I would have at least two persona on there, hypothetically speaking that is, if they actually allowed you to do that, or if I could find a way around the limit. Purely hypothetical thought process going on here (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

Enjoy the fourth, its the celebration of the day the brits became free of us too.

The FB app on my wife’s phone dug up some old pictures of people She Doesn’t Like Anymore, and stuffed them into the video FB made for her. She was not happy. And we both wonder where the pics came from. They aren’t in her FB account.

My montage included jihadists holding decapitated heads: I wonder why facebook thought those were friends?

Happy Independence Day, everyone!
A Republic, if we can keep it.

2 billion.
All I can say is they’ll be gone soon according to Maxine Waters along with their 698 billion non-facebooking friends.

As for the rest of us, Happy Independence Day!
and God save your Queen!

I agree with @tonycc – don’t trust the 2B number. I have a few family members who have multiple FB pages because they find it convenient to do so for different purposes that they don’t want to intermingle. I’d very much like to know just how many unique people use FB. Count me among the non-users.

There’s a thought-provoking article by Pat Buchanan today pointing out that using a good definition of “nation” leads to the conclusion that the U.S.A. isn’t one any longer, and that “diversity is our strength” is quite wrong.

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
