Do not bleeping invite me to join Facebook

Because it’s bad enough that our social security numbers will have longer lifespans than we do without having to be told that my friendship with you means about as much as a few pixels on a computer screen. The fact that teens have bought into the so-called social networking sites bigtime should tell you a thing or two about their intrinsic value: youth is as ever pretty much wasted on the young. Buy yourself an airplane ticket, steal one if you must, and come up and see me sometime. Because face it, a bond based on mappable streams of 1s and 0s is more like a digital excuse for friendship than anything like the real deal. And a disagreeably sedentary scenario at that.
