It's pointless for me to try to explain it any further. It would be just an absolute waste of time. That rock you are referring to these days is the internet. If you've been living on it exclusively then you have lost your ability to think for yourself.
Very clearly if you think a picture of a stranger on your facebook page is what you define as a friend, well, I'll reserve comments.
My friends, they are warm people with a pulse that I can actually see in their neck veins as I sit with them in person and have real conversations. I also benefit from their body language and tones of expression to prevent me from mistaking their comments as one coming from a fool compared to one simply acting like a fool for a particular reason.
People are kind of locked it for now...
Send my condolences to them when you talk to them in person.
I don't hate facebook, I don't hate anything (even google) but I also know where to direct my allegiances.
It's very difficult to understand a person's character with an absence of voice or gestures. I'll use incrediBILL as an example. He has wit and on more then a few occasions I've been drawn into something that he commented on in a tongue in cheek manner. Of course by the time I realized he was kidding it was too late, I had already objected to what he was saying (wipe away that smirk incrediBILL).
If it was an in person conversation he wouldn't get that upper hand, but that's ok, I enjoy the challenge :)
Anyway this was a very quick reply without thinking it out much because I'm in a hurry. A honey just called me up to go out for a walk and talk so I have to get out of here quickly. Maybe I'll come back to it later tonight.
