      It's extremely time consuming to delete the "friends" I've aquired through college and extracurriculars. Posting an offensive status and watching your friends drop is much easier.

      I wasn't aware for a bit that when you commented people's pictures, it posted it in your news feed. Got myself in hot water when I still with my last gf and I commented on another girls photo I also learned people take Facebook was to seriously. I post things I think will be funny or get a rise out of someone. I delete people who use it for nothing other than an outlet to complain about their life. It's a good way to keep in touch with people I otherwise would very rarely see is the only reason I haven't deleted mine.

      If you haven't spoken to someone in 8 years why bother starting again? Obviously you weren't that important to each other 8 years ago when you stopped corresponding.

      I've learned that people cannot communicate unless Facebook is involved.

      To reinstill some hope, I was speaking to a girl who is 20 years old about Instagram and she replied, "What's an Instagram."

      She is my new BFF.

      Ain't nothing like religious wackos who will go to any length to prove that their literal interpretation of the bible makes sense on facebook.....here's a copy and paste from someone I went to middle school with:

      "I love seeing people try to prove God isn't real with theories. Theories are not proof! That's why they are called thoeries. Nobody knows for a fact how far away anything is. Light years? There is no proof just theories, did some man travel to thoses distant galexies and time himself? I don't think so. Oh and food for thought wasn't Columbus trying to prove the earth wasn't flat, if he'd have read the bible he would have already known that. Isaiah 40:22 read it

      About the mesurement of light how do they know for a fact that it is a true mesurement of the speed? No one has lived long enough to prove that the mesurement they have is acurate. Just like carbon dating. There have been so many fossils that the age determined by carbon dating that were wrong. So many ages are given and they choose the one that best fits the work they are doing. Not an opinon that is a fact. No scientist will say a lot of what they say are just guesses because answers pay money and in order to keep getting funding you have to have something to show for yourself.

      Is it really evolution or animals adapting to the strange enviroment they are forced into. You can't say lab animals react and grow the same as animals do in their natural habitat. And yes animal will "evolve" when their bodies and habitats have been altered. Those eviroments aren't natural cause I've never seen gages or geneticly altered food out in the wild. Evolution is based on a man who went to the rain forrest and came across the natives and since he couldn't unserstand the complexity of their language assumed they were not as evolved as he was (even though that primative language is even more advanced with even more words than english. Just because people don't like the thought of a higher being there is no proof He doesn't exsist. The only reasonyou don't here more about creation is because close minded don't want anything to contradict all the bs they spew. Mountains and lakes change all the time do to the forces of nature. The wind blows small particals of earth everywhere and after hundreds of years yes we do have new earth formations.

      What I mean about light years. Did they send a light to another galaxy and time it?

      Read about Darwin. All evolution is (to me) is just an excuse Hitler used to justify genocide ie natural selection.

      Another question how is it that they ESTIMATE the earth is 4.6 billion years old yet we can get microwaves from 16.8 billion light years away? The time doesn't add up. If you search for the root in most scientific data against intellegent design you will find a theory. Facts can not be based on theories."

      There has been a slightly disturbing trend on my Facebook. I've had a few friends die, and it seems that other people have been maintaining their accounts. It's pretty strange to see two dead people carry on a conversation on facebook....and then today say RIP to someone who died last night.

      Dead friends on facebook is sobering. I'm class of 2009 and already had a friend die. In 2010, he committed suicide. His family was contacting his friends through his facebook account. I got a message from him after not hearing from him for a year, but he was already gone and it was his uncle sending a message about his memorial service.

      That's pretty creepy.

      I've had a couple friends pass and their account was just deleted, and then a couple others where the mom or dad writes a final "thanks for being xx's friends......, his/her acct will be deleted, we can be reached at xyzemail"...I don't think I like the idea of something like that being "maintained" by others.

      I learn about what's going on with my family members who live in three other countries. I haven't seen some of them in over 10 years and FB provides a great way to see them through posted pics and videos.

      It's very difficult to communicate with some of them via phone (time zone differences, call costs, lack of land lines in their area).

      I'd LOVE to have someone maintain my account with very sporadic, random updates, if I come to an untimely end.

      I know a kid that wound up in prison (drunk hit and run that killed someone) and friends/family keep his Facebook updated. I'm curious to see what he looks like when he's free in another 20 or so years.

      People feel good when they come back from the gym. 50 people post the same song. New moms talk about their kids. 20 people post inspirational quotes. 10 people are Asian and I don't understand sh|t. 25 are hot, the rest are boring.

      It's even better when they go to jail and they don't have anyone update. So every day people post stuff like, "where you been man?" And people are all hush hush about "he's not going to be around for a while." Ugh. Wait til the girlfriend starts posting her personal letters to him on his Wall

      Pretty mellow. Friends and family visit and post pics or people say "We're miss you" or "We're thinking about you" although your suggestion would be amusing.

      It's just weird to think that this dorky kid I knew in high school that had the nickname Snowball (and it didn't have to do with his affinity for Animal Farm) wound up in prison doing a quarter of a century bid. Life takes weird turns sometimes.

      On a more serious note

      One thing that is crazy thing about facebook is that sometimes you can have stories like this:

      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1477002.html

      Police believe that Jason Todd Ready killed four people before taking his own life.
      GILBERT, Ariz. — When Jason Todd Ready took to the Arizona desert armed with assault rifles and dressed in camouflage to look for illegal immigrants, some feared that the reputed neo-Nazi's rhetoric would turn to serious violence.

      But police say blood was shed elsewhere: When Ready leveled his gun at four people and pulled the trigger, he was in a saguaro-lined neighborhood in the quiet middle-class Phoenix suburb of Gilbert where he lived with his girlfriend and her family.

      Ready's girlfriend, 47-year-old Lisa Lynn Mederos, made a domestic-violence call to 911 asking the police to come help her on Wednesday. Seconds later, the operator heard gunshots and the line went dead.

      When police arrived they found the bodies of Lisa Lynn Mederos and her daughter, 23-year-old Amber Nieve Mederos, inside the home. Dead outside were Ready and Amber's boyfriend, 24-year-old Jim Franklin Hiott.

      Amber's 16-month-old daughter Lily was still alive inside but was pronounced dead soon after at a hospital.

      Police say Ready killed them all before fatally turning the gun on himself, saying that all the evidence points to domestic violence.

      Many considered Ready, a burly 39-year-old who went by "JT," to be the most high-profile neo-Nazi in Arizona. He led groups of heavily armed civilians into the desert to look for illegal immigrants as he repeatedly tried to win public office.

      But Ready's beliefs and actions got so extreme, including statements that land mines would be a good way to stop border crossers, that the state's most conservative politicians distanced themselves from him.

      Unwelcome among Republicans, Ready ran in January for sheriff as a Democrat. He continued to lead immigration patrols and posted Facebook updates, but there was little generally known suggesting his personal life was in turmoil.


      But Gilbert police Sgt. Bill Balafas said that police responded to the Mederos home five times since 2009, most recently in February, when Lisa Mederos called police to report that Ready had choked her in August 2011.

      Balafas said there was not enough evidence to make an arrest and that no charges were filed. It's unclear why Mederos would have waited six months to make the call.

      The other times police responded to the home included a suicide threat by Amber Mederos in November 2009 and a suspicious activity report filed by Ready, Balafas said.

      Inside the Mederos home police found six military-issue grenades, and their serial numbers will be traced, U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent Tom Mangan said Thursday.

      The grenades required a launcher, and Mangan said authorities did not find one.

      The killings and Ready's involvement stunned members of his group, the U.S. Border Guard.

      "Our sympathies go out to all of his family and friends during this time of unbelievable grief and pain," according to a statement posted on its website. "God bless you, J.T. You will be fiercely missed."

      Harry Hughes, a regional director for the National Socialist Movement who went out on patrols with Ready, said the shooting was "completely out of character" for Ready.

      "And I'm going to not speculate or make any conclusions. I'm going to let the investigation go take its course," Hughes said. "But I have a real hard time believing that JT Ready could actually shoot and kill a child."

      Anti-hate groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center have for years tracked Ready. "JT Ready was a violent thug who typifies the very worst element in the American nativist movement," said the SPLC's Mark Potok.

      According to an SPLC profile on its website, Ready was court-martialed twice in 1996 while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps, the first time after being gone for eight days without permission.

      The center said Ready was demoted to private after the absence, jailed for three months and that, later that year, was court-martialed again for conspiracy, assault and wrongful solicitation and advice. He was found guilty, spent six months in detention and was discharged for bad conduct, the center said.

      The Marine Corps was trying to confirm the center's information.

      Ready's ex-wife, Arline Lindgren, knew that he had started associating with white supremacist groups when they were married in the late 1990s, her brother, Adam Lindgren, said. The couple divorced in 2003.

      Lindgren said he got into a few arguments with Ready but that they were never violent. He said Ready had a temper, but "not a violent temper, that I was aware of." He said he never saw Ready be violent toward anybody.

      Ready was "very, very opinionated. He would argue with you until ... well, just keep arguing with you," he said.

      Ready was a member of the Detroit-based National Socialist Movement, whose members promote white separatism, dress like Nazis and display swastikas. It believes only non-Jewish, white heterosexuals should be American citizens and that everyone who isn't white should leave the country "peacefully or by force."

      Ready first tried to get into politics in 2004, when he unsuccessfully ran for a seat in the Arizona House. In 2006, he lost a run for Mesa city council but was later elected as a Republican precinct committeeman.

      He didn't run for re-election in 2008 after three Republican congressmen wrote a letter to a GOP county chairman asking for his removal because of his neo-Nazi ties. They said Ready was sullying the party's image. They said he was a featured speaker at a neo-Nazi conference in Omaha, Neb., in September 2007 and distributed racist and anti-Semitic literature at a GOP meeting.

      Trying to distance himself from the movement, Ready told The Arizona Republic in 2010 that he left the group. Potok said the move was "merely for cosmetic reasons."

      Ready was also running his desert operations targeting illegal immigrants, one of which was featured on the National Socialist Movement's website as recently as January. Some of the photos on the website match ones posted to his Facebook page.

      They include images of Ready and other members wearing head-to-toe camouflage gear, helmets and boots, and carrying high-powered guns during a weekend operation ending Jan. 29. The group claimed to help the U.S. Border Patrol apprehend one illegal immigrant.

      "Some of us have our fingers on the triggers," Ready wrote in a post on a website for his group. "Soap box. Ballot Box. Ammo box. These were given to us by our founding fathers and mothers. We have just about depleted the first two options."

      In January, Ready announced that he wanted to become sheriff in Pinal County. Ready listed himself as a Democrat, and most considered his chances of being elected laughable.

      Former Arizona Rep. Russell Pearce, the chief architect of some of the state's tough legislation against illegal immigrants, was once Ready's political ally and friend, but said in a statement that he distanced himself after learning of his ties to white supremacists.

      "At some point in time, darkness took his life over," he said.

      Learned that:
      - Most of the girls who were either a) my GF or b) I had a major crush on, are still pretty cute.
      - At 34, most of the girls/guys I know have kids, and they post pics of them prodigiously on FB.
      - People are on FB, a lot, during working hours.
      - Some girls have REALLY gone downhill.
      - Everyone seems to be, for the most part, doing pretty well.
