While Facebook is foreign to me, I think I understand the 'addiction'.

Though I understand it, I don't get it (like a smoker). I don't get what the need is.

Like the girl said, she still has relationships with those important to her.

Who are the rest of these 'friends'?

I roll my eyes when people brag about having X amount of friends on Facebook. None of that matters. It's a facade. When they go on and on about hundreds....thousands of friends, it means nothing. That same person in real life probably only has 5-6 friends.....if that.

I roll my eyes when people take pictures of just basic crap like the food they eat or where they are staying.

Do these 'friends' really care?

This is why you shouldn't take people's Facebook lives seriously

Everyone on Facebook looks like they're having a great time. Fun adventures, deep romances, amazing jobs. It's enough to make you feel inadequate, but it's also a lie. Nobody is really as happy as their Facebook wall claims, as this piercing short from HigtonBrothers confirms.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxVZYiJKl1Y

So the next time you're driven to jealousy by a Facebook friend's humblebragging about his or her awesome life, don't forget: They're probably embellishing it for social media, even if it's unconsciously.

Ultimately, Facebook is a narcissistic playground where the best, the funniest, the most charming aspects of our lives are publicized and the shitty stuff, the boring stuff, the beige that is most of our daily grind almost never gets posted. All those walls are edited at some level and that makes them, at best, a deformed mirror image of real life or, at worst, nothing more than a fictional movie of how we want people to see us.

The solution? Just go live your life, focus on your present reality, and ignore the circus of social media. Trust me, you'll be a lot happier.

Oh, I never believe what anyone is posting on their FB page. I know a handful of people from my old job as well as from High School and a few chicks I've dated over the years. I know them well. I know what they doing in real life and what kind of issues they have and yet everything they post contradicts what I know for a fact. So yeah, I don't trust FB one and neither should you.

Why We Unfriend

Interesting read. Had Facebook or Myspace been around back in my High School days, I probably would have been befriending EVERYONE as well!

I'm not sure where to put this. It's not a Boeing thing.

Ban on In-Flight Calls Likely

DOT to Proceed With a Formal Proposal; Airlines Say They Should Decide
The Wall Street Journal    08/04/2014
Author: Doug Cameron

The U.S. government is getting closer to its final word on whether to allow cellphone calls on airplanes. And that word appears to be "no."

Airlines, meanwhile, are pressing for the final decision to be left to them.

The Department of Transportation plans to pursue the next step in what could lead to a formal ban on in-flight calls, Kathryn Thomson, said in a speech last week at the International Aviation Club in Washington, according to people present.

A spokeswoman confirmed that the DOT is developing "a notice of proposed rulemaking" for publication in December that would lay out its objections to passengers making and receiving calls. It would open the issue for further comments by industry and travelers until February before making a final ruling, according to a regulatory filing.

Regulators are focused on the disruptive effects of voice calls rather than texting or other data use, having last year loosened restrictions that now allow airline passengers to use electronic devices for these purposes from gate to gate.

In December, the Federal Communications Commission proposed overturning technical rules barring in-flight cellphone use that have been in place for more than two decades. Those rules were designed to prevent interference with ground-based cellular networks, but the FCC said it believed that is no longer a concern. The FCC has yet to issue a formal rule change, but any Transportation Department rule barring voice calls would take precedence.

I don't fly, but if I did, I would certainly feel safer knowing that Cell Phones were forbidden and not allowed mid flight.

If you did fly, you would find right away, that talking on the phone will instantaneously cause problems

I just joined Pinterest and I don't know what I'm doing.  :-\

What I mean, I started looking deeper into drums and steampunk subjects and ran across a few related to Pinterest. So I joined to look at the stuff a little closer.

I just don't know how it works. Is there a Pinterest for dummies?

I signed up for an account a few months back but haven't done anything beyond entering my name. At the moment, all I have is Nointerest in using it.  ;D
