skinink: A friend from college keeps posting stupid Tea Party crap. So many times I want to respond that he's wrong but I back off. I really want to just unfriend him because obviously he's miserable living in America under Obama's presidency.

I have a friend like that. I just keep posting references to Somalia in his threads.

In all seriousness, I think this is interesting and important research to be doing. At any given moment, my news feed has examples of depression, narcissism or self-aggrandization.

One buddy of mine actually is clinically bipolar (yes we're trying to get him help, but he flat out refuses it), and his rambling posts are a darkly fascinating look into mental illness.

Facebook explained:

step 1-
post pictures of food, a song you like, some pics of your vacation.

step 2-
complain about the food, biatch about Guided By Voxhaul selling out, biatch about mastercard taking your house because you can't pay for vacation.

step 3-
your short circuited reward system goes mental when people post replies of any kind.

step 4-

facebook is like winning a free game at pinball. no actual tangible reward for the time put in. that's ok though, your brain doesn't know the difference unless you are a centered and mentally healthy individual.

i do not use facebook. facebook is for morans.

Like smartest and funniest for this post, or scroll past if you don't care about dead kittens or Jesus dying for your sins, or our soldiers in Iraq, or hate your grandmother.
