Seriously, y'alls need to make more socialist intellectual friends or something who post more ponderous things. It's not quite as great/timesucking as twitter (where the philosophers hang out), but honestly, facebook is only as shallow as your friends.

Or it could just be that I've blocked or ignore all the boring people and facebook's figured out that I like really boring ponderous and pretentious bullshit.

And that's Twilight Sparkle gettin' barbecued over there. Yes, I was a minor fan of the franchise, back in the day—it was like Firefly, but with horses.

God, I love reading your posts, even though they gum up my brain too much for me to respond coherently.

And it is just as silly to expect FB to be like the Ship as it is to complain that the Ship doesn't have a "like" button. And common sense is a good thing-- if someone posts a controversial political cherry bomb ( as in Alan's example), they have opened the door to a political discussion, IMO. Same goes for me if I post a blistering rant against Trump. But if someone ( hypothetically) posts a shout out to two guys they know who are getting married, perhaps that's not the place to launch into a defense of DOMA, and if (again, hypothetically) I post an obituary of the old lady who owned the local donut shop, indicating I had been fond of her, don't be shocked if I am not in a frame of mind to field comments like, "It's too bad she spent so much of her life contributing to the American obesity epidemic." Not everything is a debate, some stuff are just attempts to connect with people who can connect with what you are posting.

Firstly, Firefly had horses. Just not as the main characters. Which was Serenity. And Jane Motherfucking Cobb.

So, you and scz were physically present in the same room, eating and drinking and joining in the conversation for an entire evening. And, your presence went totally unremembered.

Or, you know, sometimes exaggerating produces entertaining results.

Also, it wasn't an evening. You just made that shit up.

I wasn't there, and so faced with the option of was it a lunch and afternoon meet or a dinner and evening meet I tossed a mental coin, and got it wrong. So, yes I made it up.

Though, maybe I was there and the stimulating company and conversation was such that I've totally forgotten the whole experience.

On the subject of meets in Scotland and Shipmates of yore, I do remember the time IngoB came to visit. That was a dinner and evening, the last we saw of him was being led down a dark alley by scz and chive to sample the delights of the Edinburgh nightlife. He looked back with a "help, what have I let myself in for?" look on his face. I think he feared spending the next few hours trapped in a discussion of Scottish Presbyterianism and the latest issues in the Church of Scotland. He may have been right.

Even that limited function is annoying, and stupidly inconsistent.

I found out, by accident, that changing the more ephemera-loving 'friends' to 'acquaintances' on FB made most of the monotonous links disappear. Then you get real news from real friends and a lot less junk.

That is quite possibly true - but that doesn't solve all the problems, does it. The whole fucking interface is inconsistent assholery. Things aren't listed chonologically, and if there's an option it's not readily apparent. Not to mention the whole shifting realms of access and settings. I swear I have to update the notification settings quarterly to insist that I don't get drowned in bullshit. Actually trying to find anything is a mess, clearly designed to distract and keep you poking around as long as possible.

Fuck that shit.

IIRC, the joy of sabre fencing is that in order to get a hit you have to be in a position that allows your opponent to hit you.

Are you implying I have no impulse control? Because if you are

Technology has brought us all closer together. Turns out a lot of the people you meet as a result are complete idiots.

Every one is a sock puppet of the previous poster. It's one big Quizmaster game that never died.

You did it a purpose to imply that I was your sock puppet.

And the more you poke around, the more rubbish they send you. A real ship of fools if ever there was one.

No I didn't formany reasons, but the main one because I'm English you thick bell-end.

Littlebugger, why don't you go and count your chromosomes because I'm not convinced you would pass an audit.

And just because some of you need reminding from time to time...

Nuclear weapons, Brexit, The Conservative Party, home-ownership, setting up pro-western governments in foreign parts, cheap shares from privatising things, immigration caps and being nasty to the French. These are all excellent.

Just saying.

As I said, not sober enough to make any sense.

Do 7-11 do their own brand alcohol in the States? I know they do in Japan. Not that deano needs any more cheap booze to rot what's left of his brain.
