"Oh, you dumped me because you think you're too good for me and my political beliefs? Well, maybe this evidence that I'm committing multiple felonies will change your mind."

I can't get the TPM article to fully load, so I don't know if there was a pic. I didn't see an age. Here's a pic from another article:

Looks 25-30 years old. I don't think that generation is "dumb" in general. In fact, I think they are quite bright. In many respects, they have a much broader skill set than I do. With the massive exception of posting everything on the internet and texting everything to someone and sending pictures out via any number of channels with no way of getting those pics back. Everything. It's like it's not real unless posted and liked and circulated and, god willing it goes viral!!!!  I just don't get the need to make everything public. For godsakes, don't text, just make a f'ing phone call. It probably doesn't bite most people. But when you should know it could bite you, expect to be bitten.

I know I sound old. I guess I am. Makes no f'ing sense to me.

No, I agree with you there. If I have something to say that's more than three lines I just call the person unless it's not feasible for some reason. But one can be tech savvy and still be a farking moron for advertising your attempted overthrow of our government.

I know. That's the disconnect that I don't get. They know virtually everything is permanent. But the need for recognition outweighs the knowing permanence.

I'm telephonophobic, always have been. making calls gives me the same reaction I've heard claustrophobics describe. answering is very slightly better. even as severely introverted as I am, I'd rather go talk to someone in person than call them.

...not that I think this guy is doing it for any reason than other than "look at me I'm an attention whore trying to overthrow the government."

Anything that you could even remotely go pear-shaped and leave you with exposure, you simply don't text about
Phone calls, and private conversations for things beyond that, exist for a reason.

C-Span

The thing is, C-Span calls them protests... I guess Trump must've got to them somehow.

Regarding using the phone instead of texting or recording, the electronic footprint is still there.  It puts him squarely inside the restricted access area on the day of insurrection.  It's slightly less damning, because then it's a matter of he said, she said.  That geolocation feature on the cell phone is amazing and very useful to law enforcement.

You don't use a cell phone or even carry it, during the felony event unless you are intent on helping the cops.

Only the dbags do it.  Sure, it works out for a few, but for 99.9% of people social media immersion has negative consequences.  These people would have been crackheads in the 80s and meth heads during Shrub's adminstration.

The only problem there is that over half the population seems to consider a cellphone like a fifth limb, and are incapable of parting with it.

It is a useful piece of tech, I admit.  But I am just as happy without it.

Interesting side note, it is now impossible to get a cell without txt features.  I consider txting the spam of the Devil Himself, and avoid it whenever possible...  but you can no longer do so.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: I never dreamed that one day The Marching Morons would become a true story


One of my favorite stories from when I discovered the SFBC in high school back in the.. um, a long time ago.  I've thought we've been in a version of The Marching Morons for about the past four years.  I'm waiting to see if a John Barlow analogue emerges.

Also Tinny-Peete is a great character name.

I...what?
I'm trying to recall the last phone I had that didn't have messaging....you're looking for something that stopped being a thing 30 years ago?!!

/in regards to calling someone, I can write and send a whole paragraph in a shorter time than it takes to go through the pleasantries of a phone call. And that includes messaging pleasantries.
//plus messaging is asynchronous, so I don't have to worry about the other person being in a meeting or in the middle of something
///don't get me wrong, calls will always have a place, but my life now has become mostly messages and face2face (precovid). Calls are for catching up or debating.

Fark loves that word, insurrection.

Sadly they are too blindly bigoted to realize it applies to the summer-long BLM assaults' on the Federal buildings in Seattle as well.

But fairness, equity and honesty long ago left the Left.
