ah, good old facebook…
nothing, in my opinion, in modern culture has done more to fuck up more peoples lives, be them personal life, work life, love life, or what have you, quite like facebook. you could start a website called “drama.com” and it wouldn’t produce MORE drama than facebook does.
and like we all like to slow down and gawk at the car crash, most can’t get enough of the old FBD (facebook drama) either. the graphic above? i put that together inspired by a recent cosmo (god help us) poll that found that one out of every five women would rather go a week without sex than go a week without facebook. making matters worse, when the same 2,000 female readers were asked if they’d rather go a week without internet or their cell phone or sex FIFTY (non-)FUCKING PERCENT said they’d rather go a week without he-dick rather than e-mail and internet. and fifty seven picked going a week sans fucking better than going a week sans cell phone.
that is BEYOND fucked up.
the article i read about the cosmo poll tried to blame this on women and technology and what-not, and while i did once have a first (and last) date that felt like a threesome between me, her, and her crackberry (i let the two of them go home and enjoy a night together without me) i personally blame the dudes.
yes, you heard me.
i figure if guys were taking care of business properly, they wouldn’t need to comment on every drunken pic or post of viral video or whatever the fuck. so you know you’re doing it right if they put down the phone for ya. and if not…
