    You're not alone. Feels like it sometimes, though, doesn't it?

    I had a FB account that I visited once a year to thank people for birthday wishes. I had it deleted after the Cambridge Analytica thing. I do not miss it.

    I don't think anyone but my wife has missed me on there. She does think I'm nuts.

    I cancelled my FB account a couple of years ago. Too fascist and too much selling of personal info.

    I tried FB for a couple of days,too confusing. Who the hell are all those people?

    On a more hypocritical note,we picked up a job from FB today! My business has a FB account. I do not know how to access it.

    I'm a little disappointed by you FB guys for not describing this video to us. You're missing a great opportunity here. Most of us who have replied can't see it; we wouldn't know if you were lying or not. You could make up anything to get a reaction from us.

    I like cats, btw. I hope there are cats in the video.

    Oh sorry I didn’t really figure that out. lemme see if I can find it elsewhere, it’s a guy dual wielding big axes splitting rounds in a very let’s risky manner and I’m sure creative editing was involved.



    There ya go

    That is some uhhhh..... creative log 'splitting' without a doubt. Great way to lose a foot!

    When I think Darwin award though, I think of the story I read today of someone who got their entire head stuck in a truck muffler. :confused:

    Count in another refusal to the book of feces. I also avoid twitting, instablab, and all of the other anti-social nonsense. Keep the faith, we're better people for it. BSing around the campfire is my idea of socializing. You're all welcome to join anytime.

    Don’t, couldn’t, wouldn’t, never have, won’t.

    That was a drunken twit at a concert, apparently a pin head too... o_O Then she bragged about it. Driving the truck away would have probably worked with no damage to the truck either. They cut the tail pipe off her head. Waste of metal...

    When doing on-line research about knives, Google bring up all sorts on Pintrest posts. Zero information - just pictures. Is that the point? Show but no tell?

    He missed one! He missed one!

    I'm truly surpriesd he didn't take off a foot or leg! I kept waiting for him to fall to the ground next to a red fountain! At least he was wearing safety glasses! He split some wood, but what a fool!

    No FB for me!!! If there is a place in this world where too much information is given, it's certainly found on FB! It's the CIA's go to site... it's a place where you can indulge yourself of a complete stranger's endless postings of selfies and reposted sayings robbed from cyberspace... it's a place where you can track people's moods at all times of day, see what they had for supper every night, and heck, probably even learn the the consistency of their stool in the morning! :eek: ...

    ...Ya, TMI!!! Go outside people, sit under a tree and watch a cloud float by... do anything else but exploit yourself on a daily basis. OK, I'm done with my fit, and ready to move on... But how will people know what soap I used to clean dishes with this evening? ;)

    Pintrest is one of those great annoyances of the internet. People ‘pin’ an image and then when you go to see about it, you get Pintrest so you can spend money there and they can sell your info. Makes me crazy. I have made it a challenge to puncture their ‘security’ and find the original link when possible and open it in a browser, even if I am not interested. Sigh...

    Are you trying to find it a forever home?

    I think you should tape pics of lost cat on lamp poles and barber shop windows, and see if the owner comes forth. :D

    Here's a good cat. I have seen this one in person. It is (or at least was at one time) hanging from the ceiling in The Nutshell pub in Bury St. Edmunds. I guess they don't have a health department there. Very cool pub, by the way. And yes, that is a mummified mouse hanging from its paw...

    I have a fb account, but I have never accessed it. I wouldn't know whereto begin. Lady Beth set it up to get extra points on some game she was playing a few years ago. According to friends the only time anything changes is when she gets bored and changes it up.

    I'm with those above.. almost..

    I have a Facebook and Twitter and YouTube page. Thing is i just did that so no one got my name and i somehow got caught up in whatever they did with it. Just sounded like a good idea to me.

    The head in a muffler comment jogged my memory. A few years back in Saint Louis a criminal tried to break into a gun shop by going down the chimney only to get to the bottom and discovered the opening had been bricked shut.

    Twitter makes even less sense than FB. I have no idea why I should give a crap about the thoughts of some celebrity on any issue, or why anyone who doesn't know me would give a crap about my opinion . What I do know is that apparently people whom you would think possessed at least a modicum of intelligence routinely write dumb things that get their azz in a crack, followed by all sorts of dumbazz excuses for why they acted so stupidly in the first place .

    I don't even know what else exists beyond FB and Twitter .

    Lol! That made me laugh :18:!

    I'm around your age and also don't have facebook. People in my age group just can't fathom or understand HOW I live and exist without one, it's really bizarre! I care more about whats going on in the woods with the plants and animals MUCH more than I care about what people are eating for breakfast or their cookie cutter political opinions. Unless deer and elk start getting facebook accounts and providing location updates BCUSA is the closest thing I'll ever have to social networking :dblthumb:
