As the title suggests, there are people who have no business being on these so-called social networking sites, like MySpace and Facebook. This isn't necessarily because they are ugly (some are) or uninteresting (many are) or socially objectionable (again, some) or because the sites rapidly devolve into little more than predatory playgrounds for horny teens and pedophiles.

No, this is because some people can't seem to stop fidgeting, twiddling, tweaking and checking their MySpace or FaceBook page. Constantly adding new "applications" and looking to see who has recently become friends with who. Sending "beers" and "fish" and marking their little maps with all the places they have been.

My distaste for MySpace is legend (or should be by now), but this FaceBook was a new one to me. My buddy Jason Olson sent me a message over the weekend, asking WHY was I not on FaceBook. So, being the fool I am, I signed up. I am one of those pathetic people who get sucked into FaceBook.  Thanks Jason.

In the last two days, I have spent more time on FaceBook than any other single activity, aside from sleeping. I have reconnected with High School friends I haven't spoken to in almost 20 years. I have added and deleted people I only peripherally knew because they happened to be in my address book (oops sorry about that.) I have sent fish, beer, pokes, and used my jedi powers on more than one hapless soul. I have also watched my Vampire Warrior take on other vampires, zombies and werewolves and dished out (and received) a nearly equal amount of ass-kicking. I have also watched my army of undead grow from zero to two... with more on the way.

After all of this, my buddy Bill Ryan shot me an invite to Twitter. So, ummm... yeah, thanks for that. I know what I'll be doing tonight.

I've read that posting twice now and I still don't understand a bit of it.

Looks like english but I think its some sort of code :)
