Speaking of Idiots on Facebook...

Warning...RANT to commence in 5...4...3...2...1...

So yesterday this random woman, who I will call Moron, who was in my friends list (a person who I friended through a friend because of a stupid, bullshit game or petition or something that I can't even remember at this point because it was so long ago) posts the following status update and it showed up in my news feed:

"It's official.. signal at 12;20 it even passed on tv. Facebook will start charging this summer.If you copy this on your wall your icon will turn blue and facebook will be free for you. Please pass this message if not your account will be deleted. p.s, this is serious the icon turns blue, So please put this on your wall."

So, I KNEW halfway through reading it that it had to be fake. False rumors about Facebook charging for their services have been circulating for several years. In about 4 seconds, I did a Google search and found several articles confirming that it was indeed a hoax and not to re-post it on your page.


I posted the link to the article as a comment to her post. This is the link:

Moron already had about 8-9 comments on there from her apparently LEGALLY RETARDED friends like: "OMG WTF BBQ! I will go back to MySpace!" and "I'm posting it right now! I can't afford to pay!"

So some douchebag (A dude who's profile pic was---I'm not kidding---a woman's nude ASS) posts right after my link: "I'm not clicking on any links, my computer is slow as it is! I'm not screwing it up more."

I responded: "It's just a link to an article confirming that this is a hoax and not to spread false info on your Facebook pages."

So Moron responds: "Yeah, I'm not either."
And responds again, to clarify: "not clicking the link, I mean."

I went APE SHIT. I was like WHAT?!?!? Yeah, I'm going to knowingly spread a virus to people in my friends list? RAGE. So, I said to myself, "You all want to be ignorant jerkoffs with your heads up your asses? FINE."

DELETE. I deleted her and about 10 other people who were "friends" by the same definition.

But this stupid, inconsequential, meaningless bullshit pissed me off for the entire rest of the day and even this morning.

I swear, sometimes Facebook is like "watching retards trying to hump a doorknob." Thank you, Patches O'Houlihan.

Douchebaggery is ever present in the FB.

Idiots is right. I'm so tempted to ditch most of what I do on FB. I'd probably stay in touch with my friends & family and play a game or two - and everything else can just piss off.
