Facebook Officially Out Of Hand
« on: September 09, 2009, 07:11:39 PM »
Two girls fall down a well, use their cell phones to update their Facebook pages instead of calling 911:

Personally, I tried Facebook and didn't like it at all. Found it hard to use and didn't get the appeal.

Also, I would call 911 if I fell down a well.

You let more people know you're down a well if you use Facebook rather than Emergency Services.  Reaction time is probably quicker, too.  :)

Hey my 911 operator just sent me a pair of night vision goggles using Mafia Wars. I clicked ignore.

I've always said that preteen girls are really geniuses.

Once you're over the age of 10, kind of have to be "brilliant" to fall down a well in the first place, don't you?   ;)

Especially in pairs.

Remember when Facebook was just profile pictures, walls, and basic profile info? And it was just for college students?

Those were good days. Good days.

Where was Lassie for all this?


I tried Facebook but it won't load the pages properly. I heard it's because I use FireFox. Anybody else know if that's true?

When I first tried Facebook, I was used to MySpace, so it confused the hell out of me. Then my wife got on there and, well, you know I had to start actually checking it out now and then to keep an eye on her . . . Once I got used to it, though, I much prefer it to MySpace. Mostly because it's so much more streamlined and not so much of an ad whore.

Hopefully someone actually did call 911 once they saw the two little morons' updates.

I guess in theory it works, depending on the number of 'friends' they had on facebook at the time. If they're got a thousand or more (I've seen many with huge numbers, many who add for the sake of adding and having more), someone was bound to see it instantly. Which... still ends up taking more time than just calling 911. So, I say >_<

Also, is there a specific reason that news site has hentai at the top of each article (and many linked stories about underage necrophiliacs), or am I just missing something?
