What do you mean? Our Fark Independents are Captains of Industry with 12 inch long, 3 inch wide penises, and all have several advanced degrees in just about everything.

Well, I tend to be more of a Democrat than an Independent, but the rest of it works.

Advanced degrees in the STEM fields, I think you mean. They only dabble in the liberal arts in their spare time.

My BMI is higher than I'd like, but my credit score is fine and I have very little credit card debt. Less than $50.

I AM THE OUTLIER!
 
2012-11-09 12:07:28 PM  
People on Fark have a high BMI, too, but that's because they're all 6-foot-6, 300 pounds masses of solid muscle. That's why BMI is such an irrelevant measure, after all -- it doesn't take into account that some people are just natural masses of raw power and energy.

While people who use Fark tend to have higher BAC, increased binge drinking.

I haven't yet, but the trend of businesses putting information I need (or at least sorta want) only on FB continues I might have to reconsider. I'm hoping the FB fad will crest and subside before that happens.

So let me get this straight.. they polled 541 people out of the millions on facebook, and come to the conclusion that the majority of facebookers are fat, cash strapped, no credit having people? I smell some bad assumptions here..

/not fat
//some credit debt due to being employed for only a month out of the last 2 years, but reasonable.
///great credit
////facebook user for many years.

I'm an outlier on Fark too apparently, I have no degrees in Law nor do I have a high BAC at any given time. I also never go to the gym.
 
2012-11-09 12:49:49 PM  
I walked away from social media more than a year ago.MySpace in its heyday was awesome.Im an artist and the MySpace artist forums were a wish come true for me.Turns out that hanging out in an online forum showing your work and appreciationg the works of others is not the same as wading through an avalanche of carny barker type ads though .Social media may once have been an eagltarian global forum but has since degenerated into a feverish marketplace where everything under the sun is up for sale including human worth. The 'anti christ' isnt a pope or a politician,hes a goddamn advertising exec.
The craven love of other peoples money spoils and befouls everything it touches. The god of shiat trades hot on the NYSE and is always regarded as a hold or a buy by its holy skidmarks and its methane funk cloys the senses of its parishoners,its fat,debt heavy and mentally stupified parishoners.
Amen
 
2012-11-09 12:54:55 PM  
I knew it! Outside of FB users there are no overweight people scarfing down burgers and pie (the cake being a lie), racking up credit card bills and defaulting on their mortgages! The recession must have been a social media conspiracy! I always thought...

Oops have to stop the rant here cuz I need to need to be at the gym in 26 minutes.

Unless they poll every single FB user this study is meaningless.

I removed all my "friends" from my newsfeed and now only see information from NOAA, local attractions I like to visit, and news sites.

Maybe it was just my friends, but it seemed like facebook was turning in to a bunch of depressed housewives trying to one-up each other. Posting shiat like "I can honestly say I still get butterflies in my stomach when I see my husband." and 20 million pictures of themselves. One lady's kid got snatched bald-headed by an industrial fan and had to get staples in her head, but she never posted about it. I did get to see twenty pictures of her wearing a ridiculous leather headband though.

Anything that makes me hate humanity that much cannot be a good thing.

Are they sure that study was done about Facebook users? Sounds like it's about America vs. The Rest of the World...

Nope, it wasn't just your friends... your "depressed housewives trying to one-up each other" description is pretty accurate...

What! Something I read on the internet questions my unshakeable belief in the value of something else on the inernet. I'm conflicted (and apparently fat).

It's too bad, because Facebook was fun for a few years. My friends and I would have "mother-of-the-year" contests, where we would all post how we were accidentally damaging our children. Harmless stuff that we felt guilty about, and it made us feel better to know we weren't the only moms struggling.

But now these same moms are on facebook pretending they really ARE the mother-of-the-year. And it's irritating. I'm almost 40 years old. I outgrew romance novels in jr high.

But the whole "my husband gives me butterflies in my stomach" thing was the straw for me. I have no idea why this sentiment suddenly became popular (I'm thinking it must be from Shades of Grey, or Twilight), but I saw three women post it on facebook in a week. What the hell. When did triggering your fight or flight response become the standard for love?

After that I said no more. That was about a month ago.

Mine is also the same, and there is also the guy equivalent as well. Usually its the "look, I actually am a good father" type stuff.

2012-11-09 03:57:05 PM  
My FB account only has pictures of me fapping to animal porn. I have to create a new account roughly 4 times a week, and my FB email fills up within an hour of attempting to re-friend with "You again?" messages.

I'm starting to think the 250 GB upload every time is not worth it.
