Fakebook.

I've thought about this so I have to debate you, but I'll go ahead and contend that you are brilliant.

In fact, I think we are all everything. Facebook is as real as anyone is. Outside of Facebook is as real as anyone is. When you send someone a smiley face it's like a hug. When you send a message it's like calling. When you send someone a friend request it's like their name came up.


Here's where it gets me. When you grow up there are more people in the world. And you were sent here to show only good because who's got time to waste on the rest. But then you realize on Facebook that there is so much good out there and need, so many people need and it scares you that there may not be enough time in this world. So you tell yourself that everyone's just fine and you take a break for a little while. Or you stay on it and possibly lose your mind which is fine because what good did that do you anyway.

Radiolab's current run on "When Brains Attack" talks about a long distance runner. The pace, the breath, the no time before, the no time after. The focus she gained by losing a kiwi size portion of her temporal lobe. To me, Facebook is a part of the brain which takes some pretty intense focus if you have friends and you care for them and you want to encourage them and tell them how much you love them but it takes about two hours a night to have just 300 friends. That number makes my brain explode.

You just faked the loss, didn't you. ;)
