When I saw this published under the wargames domain, I thought it might have something to do with playing Diplomacy. ninja

I am forced into it - the wife kept pestering me to do it.

Working at an EDU - I recall when it was new; got an account back then when it was restricted to EDUs to see what the hubbub was all about.

Thought it was overblown crap.

still do.

someone is a billionaire because of this?!>!>!?

Yeah--didn't you see the movie (Social Network)?

My wife took me to it a couple weeks ago. Not bad, actually. No heroes in it that I could see, though; just nerds and antiheroes.

Btw, there's a place for wargamers to hang out on Facebook too. (Probably more than one.)

Friends? I vaguely remember them. I used to find them at the bottom of my garden when I was a kid.

I am going to have tryouts for my friends list, kind of treat it like a reality tv show and have them do challenges each week to stay on

Tallk Like a Pirate Day is an international outrage.

Whereas this is just a quaint USA custom. No need for us Brits to follow the colonials...meeple

Piracy and Smuggling is what the original Tea Party was all about...the interference of the Royal Navy and its 'Tax Enforcement' abuse is what drove us to our current disagreement.

I assure all that Taxation with Representation is better the same as under you guys.

Yeah, we still have Customs Duties Without Representation, despite the Tea Party. You do too, actually.

having 59 friends on my list, I could not cut any. Most were either
A) My family/cousins/grandma
or
B) people I hang out with at least 1 a month or more often in some cases.

Unfriend yourself! Quit Facebook. You won't be sorry for long.

arrrh


Edit: and to adopt some local speech patterns that are not my own: bollocks to the idea that you need Facebook. Since quitting FB, I've stayed in better contact with my real friends, mainly through long-form emails. And you always say so much more interesting things in a proper email than in a 10-word status update. Anyone I lost contact with after quitting were never really worth staying in contact with in the first place.
