Who uses their real name on facebook?!?

Like I said, it's not difficult to get banned (group or wholesale), especially if you like to post factual information. There's a certain agenda behind facebook and factual information is the furthest thing from it. For all the talk of knowledge, science, gestalt, singularity, etc --- the single biggest gift of the internet has been the greatest infestation of stupid that the human race has ever seen.

Why is that? Two reasons:

1> It trends against attention span, which trends against analysis, which trends against research.

That is, everything can be had in a hyper-distilled two-line soundbite, so over-simplified as to be actively misinforming, yet swallowed up wholesale. Twitter is the latest confirmation: not only can you find sound bites that have no real basis in fact, but now you can speak in them yourself.

2> Confirmation bias. With everyone having the same access to a soapbox, every moron out there is screaming his head off, waiting for a reply. Not many people are willing to admit that they're wrong, even when they're being beat with it.

So rather than admit they're wrong, they'll stick their fingers in their ears (or eyes, mouth, nose, or whatever other orifice keeps out the science) and keep hunting for some other lunatic that agrees with them. And once they've found that person, they will take his/her very existence as proof of their own correctness. "Someone agrees with me, therefore I'm right." or "I have forty likes to your one, I'm right and you're WRONG!" No research required.

While this has always been a problem with humanity, never has it been the problem that the internet social media has made it.

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

I agree. By the way, could you please upload a photo of identification to prove that you indeed are 01-7700? That essentially was what Facebook asked me to do in order to access my account. Except they wanted "Nacho Thunder" ID.

Which is ironic considering how easy it is to create additional accounts. Back when I was into facebook games I had a couple dozen accounts and even though I've not accessed most of them in years, I'm pretty sure each and every one of them is still active.

My mother was a VAX-11/780 and father was a TRS-80 so you can see why they named me 01-7700.

This is the best family photo I have.

We still have the stores. They just renamed them "The Source". And stopped selling all the good stuff. And hiring anyone who knows about electrical stuff. Now it's just a small version of Best Buy or something.

We have one "The Source" here, it's a medical marijuana shop that closed down --- which is perplexing considering the stuff was voted legal last year.

It's must not be as satisfying getting stoned if it isn't illegal.
