Cutting down on FB feels better

I’ve cut down on my Facebook use last few weeks and it really feels great.

Now I know what you’re thinking, you just posted on Facebook, how does this work?

Simple, my blog post is automatically posted to Twitter which in turn are auto-posted to Facebook. That way I don’t have to see Facebook itself.

I still check Facebook periodically but not nearly as much as I used to and I really feel better for it.

I found that I didn’t need to know what other people were doing.

Having my own blog has replaced the need to use Facebook as a place to vent. And I don’t have to worry about the liberal FB police not liking my posts.

Facebook Exile day 3

I can’t say enough how not being on Facebook is so liberating.

Yes I still have my account and I will occasionally check in to see what’s going on. But I won’t be posting and I won’t be looking at it constantly like I have in the past.

I thought I’d miss not checking up on people every hour but I don’t miss it at all. It’s actually very freeing.

I can use my own blog and scream into the void and say whatever vile things I want about people and I won’t be censored.

Here are some examples

  • The the people in Boone County neighborhood group is the largest selection of stupid people in my area.
  • Liberal is just another word for overeducated stupid person.
  • The the last thing I posted on Facebook was a joke but my liberal friend had to check it on Snopes and tell me that it wasn’t real. No shit Sherlock it’s a joke!

These are just a few that I came up with off the top of my head. I’m sure I could come up with more if I tried but I’m tired of posting so I’ll post more again later.

FB Exile day 2

Until recently I had forgotten just how wonderful things were in 2006. Back in the day when you created something and it was your creation.

People were able to see humor for what it was. It wasn’t fact-checked, it wasn’t criticized, it’s just what it was.

Context has become meaningless, minuscule facts are all that matter anymore.

So what’s this rant that no one else is ever going to see about?

It’s about Facebook that fucking cesspool of humanity where your so-called friends correct you at every turn.

These douchebags that never created an original meme of their own because they don’t possess the skill to get beyond the like and share button.

And then there are those wonderful folks who want to point out that your post is fake.

Of course, it’s fake, it’s a joke you dumbass. Can you show the entire world what a fool you are because you don’t know it’s a joke?

I feel better now. I’m here in my rubber room on the interweb. Safe and sound from the fools on the other side of the door. I can scream as loud as I want and no one will hear me.

My facebook exile continues on to day 3 and more happiness.


Why is retirement different?


It occurred to me this morning as I got up at 5 o’clock for no real reason but I could never have gotten up at 5 o’clock when I was working at least not without considerable effort.

It was wonderful though interesting how retirement changes you.


All the poor people still trapped in the Matrix

I just got an ad from Newegg for Symantec’s Norton Internet Security and I felt a great sadness for all the people who are still trapped in the Matrix and believe they can’t live without Windows and Office.

People need to get over themselves

I’m so glad I was born in the late fifties and grew up in the early sixties and seventies. I was very fortunate to have a family and friends who didn’t see my disability as something that gave me some form of entitlement.

I survived growing up making fun of my disability. I’m fairly certain that if I was growing up today the type of comments I made back then would be completely unacceptable today.

Someone would be offended and would tell me that I shouldn’t talk that way about myself.

I read Facebook posts today where someone got very offended because the other person was using sarcasm that offended their sensibilities.

There doesn’t seem to be any kind of comment that’s intended as a joke by the person posting,  where someone from our liberal politically correct culture doesn’t get offended.

My Job Is To Tell White People When To Shut Their Mouths

My Job Is To Tell White People When To Shut Their Mouths

I love Digital Ocean

I love Digital Ocean.

Every time I log in I find something new. Yesterday I created a new Minecraft server for Nicholas and found out when he’s not using it I can create a snapshot and delete the droplet so I’m only paying for it when he wants to use it. When it’s not online it’s costing me $0.20 a month. I know a lot of people think AWS is great, and it has a lot of features, but it’s way more complicated than Digitalocean.
