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.

Oh, come on: Whose mom didn't say, "Well, if Sally jumped down a well, would you do it, too?"
"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."

Yeah, but most kids figure out that that's not a suggestion[/]...

Why are preteen kids on facebook?
Parental apathy about what their progeny are doing so long as it doesn't disrupt their personal hobbies....  This explains why we have too many kids that can't write a complete sentence or try to sign legal documents with smileys at the end of every line.

RVR has exactly this problem.

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.

Well maybe they figured that Lassie would get to them quicker if they updated their Facebook accounts.
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

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.

Oh yeah? Well back in my day, the only facebook we had was an actual BOOK! And we liked it that way!

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?
I use firefox and have no probs.

Yeah, I don't even have Internet on my phone and I'm 32. Well, I can get online, but it costs me an arm and a leg to do so because I don't have a data plan . . . and refuse to get one. The only reason I see to have a data plan on a personal phone is if you don't have Internet at home and use it for an iPhone or laptop. Otherwise, it just seems kinda superfluous (and damn expensive).

I suppose I'm the only one who thinks they should have left the girls down in the well and head this obvious evolutionary dead end off at the pass.

They could send food down, of course. And OMG! magazines, Twilight books and Jonas Bros. albums along with notes (written in text speak so the girls can read it, of course) from family along with cel phones generously decorated with rhinestone bling. I'm not a total monster, for God's sake. Just keep them out of our genepool.

One of my facebook contacts is a little girl actress only I'm sure the profile is more akin to somebody setting up a profile for their dog or cat or something, I hope it's just her mother doing it in the voice of the girl at least.

Those were good days. Good days.

I like the addition of the chat... thats about it... all the games can go. Either way Facebook is here to stay... its amazing how useful it is. I tend to put numbers into my phone and rarely call or text them, Facebook is a bit more open, random, and fun. Hell, its used from anything to wedding invites to future hookups to chating with my buds about the game. I love it.

Also, facebook has replaced personal (ie; non business) email. Not an easy feat.
