Things that I’m sick of on Facebook

kittenPictures of cats and or kittens. Enough with the felines. My distaste for the feline world is turning into hatred. Getting tired of Dogs too.

People sharing pictures of celebrities, scientists or the like with some arcane quote and commenting “truth.” Try coming up with something of your own or just keep it to yourself.

People who share ignorant, politically motivated dumb-shit and think they’re clever. Like the share I read today about education in Nordic states titled “WTF is wrong with Americans.” There’s enough holes in it to drive a semi through, but I guess people need to think they’re clever.

Vague references to other people. Call your girlfriend. Or text.

Continually sharing your drama with everyone. (see above)

The Ice Bucket Challenge. Really. Stop it.

Quizzes that tell people what sit-com they are, how ‘80’s’ they are, which Gilligan character they are, what IQ they are, or any other number of idiotic quizzes. Do you really not have anything else to do?

That picture of Gene Wilder as Willie Wonka where people put their own judgmental quotes on it and think they’ve made a clever point. That last one I saw said

  • “You want to see religious studies in school?
  • All religions or just yours?”

This is America. Just mine.

I get it. “They’re” “There” and “Their” are different in their uses. I’m almost as tired of hearing people bitch about it as I am seeing that people don’t know that difference.

I fucking love science. I’m just sick of seeing it. Science isn’t the be-all end-all every knucklehead thinks it is, and I hate that word being distributed in public. Don’t get me wrong, I use the word all the time, I’m just old school and long for the day it wasn’t just thrown around in public. Fucking stop it.

People say they’re getting tired of Facebook. Me too. Except I don’t think it’s Facebook. I think its the people.
