The IN-ternet.


Lately, I have been visiting Facebook a lot. Like A LOT! And, somehow I realised that I know more stupid people than I should. I mean, shouldn’t there be a limit to the amount of stupid people in your life? I guess not. Not that I claim to be the smartest but these few traits are BEYOND me. So, here goes another of my *pointless* rants.

* Wishing someone “hbd” : So, it’s someone’s birthday and you want to extend your “heartfelt” and “sincere” wishes. But, seriously, how many lives are you expecting to save by a “hbd muaahhh xoxo” (I don’t even know if that’s how ‘they’ write.) instead of a simple “Happy Birthday”? I mean HOW DIFFICULT IS IT? Even a “Happy B’day” would suffice, thank you!

*Typing in the tOgGlE case : This is one of the many mysteries of the Web that I will NEVER EVER understand. How is it any easier or cooler than the normal AND sane form of typing? How do you even KNOW which letters are to be capitalized and when? Not to mention the amount of pain one has to endure to “read”. Not that anyone who writes like this writes anything worth reading.

*Writing “happiee” (happy) or “mah” (my) : I get it. You are from the 21st century. I get it that shortcuts are the in thing. BUT, this is NOT even SMS lingo. This is pure MURDER. DEFAMATION. Shoot yourself for you have successfully proved that formal education is futile.

*Sharing/Posting “LIKE if you love your Mother/Father/Backbone/Neighbour’s fingernails/the poorest hyena in the world/whatever is the trend nowadays” : STOP. PLEASE. You are killing brain cells.

*Using Photoshop to insert yourself in your favourite celebrity’s picture or vice-versa : Uh, really? Who are you trying to fool exactly? More importantly, are you sure you are mentally stable?

*PDA on Facebook/Twitter/Any other social network I couldn’t bother to research upon. : I don’t think I have to write more about this.

*Posting ‘feeling’ updates every hour. : That too on Facebook. HAHAHAHA! Nope, we don’t want to know about it. Sorry, being honest.

*Putting up <Working at “Student”, “Not yet”, “MaH lYf”> on their Facebook Profile. : Just so you know, it is NOT a mandatory question. You CAN choose to keep it blank. Trust me.

P.S. You don’t have to be a Grammar Nazi or Einstein. Just utilize that organ protected by that thick skull of yours.

P.P.S. Don’t comment.

P.P.P.S. I am sure there are more kinds. And I am sure I belong in one of them.

    This is what SMS generation is.

      This is beyond that. I don’t mind a few acronyms and such. But these are beyond it.

    The tOgLe case typing has to be a new kind of encryption system which the normal sane group of people can’t decipher. I tried reasoning it out with a colleague of mine, in vain, as expected. Sigh.. Brilliant write up though :D

    Whenever i find a post really funny which makes me smile, i comment “hehehe”, then thinking, its more than enough i delete one “he” from “hehehe”… Its not Facebook, its Innerself kindda book, ppl write what they always wanted to be, and pose themselves lyk that. By the way, i agree with ur Stupids around theory.

      It’s hard to find like-minded people, so, thank you.
