More like IN YOUR FACEbook

WHAT THE HECK is up with Facebook?? Why all the name calling?
When did "Facebook" go bush?

I was doing my usual perusal of the internet this morning, enjoying
my Stephan's Gourmet Hot Cocoa of the Belgian Dark Chocolate variety, feeling OK
about myself when I came across this personal attack. I promptly phoned
'GUY' and asked him if he had, in fact, called me
"an IDIOT".
"Of course not. You are a genius. One of the smartest thinking people I know! I really respect your opinion and listen to what you say with baited breath."
or something to that effect. You can ask him for his exact words.

"Did you even TAKE the IQ test?" I inquired
"NO, I don't even know HOW to take the test" he stated emphatically with a touch
of self mockery.

After I hung up the phone I was trying to figure out why facebook would do this to a person. Why would they spend all that time and money to bring you
closer to those that you care enough about to have, at the very least, an online form of communication with
JUST to rip it apart with false accusations and mud slinging?

Is this what Britney Spears feels like?.

Another thought occurred to me...Are we the virtual equivalent of Fighting Cocks?
Are they pitting us against each other to see who has the stronger ego?
Are they BETTING on us? Is this LEGAL?

Further down on the page...the page that I was on to 'Send some love back' to one of my friends (how ironic is that)... I saw this fun little diddy winking at me:

Um... call me an idiot, but I don't think those were my exact words. Close enough, but not exact. Baited breath? I don't know. What I do know is that I don't take ANY quizzes on Facebook. My IQ is high enough to know that there is only heartache and pain down that road.

Yes, but does facebook taunt and mock you???
