To be honest, as someone going to grad school soon for Psych :lol: , most of the so called "studies" that we see in the media and things of that nature are complete bull shit and would be thrown away by actual accredited journals. Thats why they go straight to the media with their "Red M&M's make your brain melt" "research". Kinda pisses me off because it makes the field of psychology look like its full of a bunch of straw grabbing idiots.... :twisted:

And worship my own spirit
But if he ever preached to me
I wouldn't want to hear it

I'd drop him, a forgotten god,
Languishing in shame
And then if I hit stormy seas
I'd have myself to blame"

^Ya, a big part of it is the "rub my back" idea of these studies. In order to get the accredited, they have to get other scientists to sign off on the research and such and this legitimizes it. But frankly it's as corrupt as anything as scientists just sign off on each other's stuff to help each other...no normal journalist knows enough about science or the field to actually say it's drivel themselves. Not to mention we never hear who funds this research...and that they usually seem to benefit from the results. I wonder how much media gets from releasing most of that garbage.

I actually see the whole facebook invite thing as a blessing because I dont need to make up an excuse to get out of going.

People never really believed me when I told them I didn't get their e-vite (for the 10th time :shifty: ) but not being on Facebook seems to work. :thumbup:

^Yeah, my page turned into that stupid timeline thing. It's dumb and I can't find anything I posted anymore...I had to remove all the stuff of things posted by other people. It's still worse than it was before. A classic case of people working at a website having to justify their jobs by changing everything and claiming it's better.

I didn't say I was telling the truth! Just that it works! :)

I do have an account with no posts, which makes it pretty easy for people to believe I don't visit the site, even though I do look at my feed here and there. Of course, the fact that I've accepted every single friend request since 2010 means my feed is pretty cluttered with all sorts of folks I've never met. Which I like. Because its fun to read. Kinda like reality TV. :D

I also like to friend people with interesting names. :ugeek:

Heh...my Facebook is basically just me linking to funny or cool YouTube clips. Really only about four or five posts in the last year.

Maybe once a week I like to have an obnoxious day or updating constantly over mundane shit. Essentially trying to get people to block me.

Heh. My parents aren't on Facebook but if they were, I'd post fucked up shit in hopes they DO see it.

Number Of Users Who Actually Enjoy Facebook Down To 4

September 10, 2012 | ISSUE 48•37

WASHINGTON—A comprehensive and groundbreaking new report released Monday by the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project has found that only four users of Facebook derive pleasure of any kind from the popular social networking website.

According to the report, the remainder of the 950 million people registered with Facebook, despite using the site on a regular basis, take no joy in doing so, and in fact feel a profound sense of hopelessness and despair immediately upon logging in.

Added Elliott, “As it turns out, the vast majority of human beings tend to become depressed when they see the past five years of their life summarized right there in front of them in a sad little timeline.”

when tragedies happen, I hate facebook....so many people say the dumbest fucking shit

I saw one girl say "I wish I could be there to see God's punishment for this guy" with a screenshot of his facebook profile...and now I just saw a status from my roommate that some of y'all couldn't believe I wanted out of the house so bad and he said "I sincerely hope hell truly does exist", I've seen that ignorant dumbass do and say things that would undoubtedly send him straight to hell if his hopes are true
rather be on tour..

^Yeah, folks need to realize we don't care. Of course I say that about most things said on Facebook. At least post something funny, dangit.

Or at least post something like this, which was my most recent posting:

Yeah, I posted something yesterday about how everyone keeps posting about the shooting, but those same people complain when the news media is nonstop on a shooting. [I swear my entire feed was nothing but OMG it's so horrible xx number of people dead, guy's a f%ckin' PoS.]

I said it nicely, so I got all pleasant responses & lots of likes. Except my sister-in-law decided to nit-pick me into an argument that I excused myself from after a short bit.

Really though, does everyone feel like they'd better confirm to their immediate community that they disapprove of this event?!

I know I said this in a different thread, but why aren't we delving more deeply into the potential reasons people are flipping out? I think the answer "cuz this guy is just a piece of garbage that needs to rot in hell" is incorrect. Doesn't answer the question or help us move forward here, folks. We need to consider real cause and effect here instead of just assuming what, this will go away? Worse yet, are we to accept this as a new norm? Lay blame on the other political party?

^I'm not one who facebooks much, but I guess Facebook is kind of a place to air whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment and I would assume most people were feeling pretty much the same way yesterday-- understandably angry. So, it's not that surprising to me that there would be some "rot in hell" and "fuck this asshole" sort of comments flying around..... they aren't totally unwarranted.

That said, I still don't think everyone is ignoring the underlying issues. I know I'm not-- and I know my reps in Congress aren't, because I've listened to them advocate for stronger mental health services and I have seen them put forth mental health services bills that have died at the hands of the other party. So, it does become political... because one side wants easy gun access and no public mental health services and the other side wants more difficult gun access and more public mental health services.
