I don't give a what?

I'm sure most by now have figured out or already know what facebook is. For me though, it is probably the worst thing that could have happened to me right now. For a kid who already procrastinates to no end is like a flesh eating virus, the kind that starts eating your flesh before you it touches your body, nay, before you can even see it. So now here I am writing in the blog instead of looking at peoples profiles on facebook because at least when I'm writing something I feel somewhat productive. The main topics today will be facebook and if I have time, or room, chick flicks. To start, facebook is one of the greatest wastes of time I have come across in my life so far. At least for now it is. It allows you to learn about people at your school by viewing their profile and pair it with a picture that was no doubt taken while they were blitzed out of their mind. See that arm cropped out of the left side of the picture? That is either a) The hook-up from that night b) The best friend c) Some chucker who was wearing a cool hat, had a class with the person, looked like someone they knew etc. One of my favorite things to do with facebook was to go find everyone that went to my highschool whos on the FB now and look at their pictures. This was either followed by a "HEY!!!!! IT'S _______!!!!!!!!" while i frantically clickd on their name to add them to my friends list or me screaming "FUCK!!!!! I HATED _______", throwing my computer against the wall and then slowly realizing that I may have over reacted. It also allows for music snobs like my friend Eric and myself to put every obscure band we know in our favorite music part of our profile just so that people know we are hot shit. I now click on some of the bands that I have in mine so that I can see if anyone else has them. Usually it's just me or Eric who has them, but every once in a while someone else will pop up and I usually find myself thinking not hey I really want to be friends with this person, but what the hell does this sumbitch know about so and so? Then I cry myself to sleep because I'll never have any friends becasue I just push people away. What? Perhaps my favorite part of facebook though are the groups. Here's an opportunity to create groups with well thought out hilarious names that let other people know just how much of a fanactic you are about something, whether it be alcohol, hilary duff, or being a sweet bad ass. The best part of it all though is that you can make these groups as exclusive as you want. The lame ones are made so that anyone can join. The more exclusive ones you must apply to and then be accepts by the administrators of said group. But then it goes to a whole new level. There are invite only groups. These are my favorite because they encourage complete exclusivity and discrimination. There are two types of these: one where its invite only and another where its invite only but when searching for groups you cant even see it. It's invisable, shaaaaaaaaahhhhh. I don't undestand why anyone would go for the invisible one though. Why wouldn't you want people seeing a group that they have absolutly no chance of getting in to? Why wouldn't you want to hang it over their heads that only the best can be in this certain group? It's so deliciously cruel, I love it. Anyways, this got huge in a short time. no room for chick flicks. Perhaps I'll touch on them later. For now though I have successfully wasted 20 minutes of homework time. Hoorah.

Peace bitches,
Ben

Gosh, facebook sounds REALLY interesting. But you should be doing your homework, as I'm sure all your faithful readers would agree.
