I don’t have a Facebook account

I’m not going to sugarcoat it. I think people who have facebook accounts are super losers. Let’s face it, the overwhelmingly vast majority of the people (including yours truly) are losers in some way or the other. But what sets super losers apart from garden variety losers is that the former have facebook accounts.

The only positive thing that facebook has inadvertently done is to create a simple test for determining whether one is a super loser or not. It would have been very difficult to estimate the number of super losers in the world but thanks to facebook, you can get an accurate count — the number of facebook accounts. Bill Maher should have pointed that out in his “New Rule” segment about facebook. Here’s that bit:

This post has been brought to you by the folks who send me facebook links. They ought to cease and desist.

  1. Why blame Facebook alone? The entire internet is a distraction machine.
    For those super minds who can resist the distraction will harvest treasures from the internet. Maybe the same applies to facebook.
    Note: I do not use Facebook because I do not trust myself not to get distracted.
