3 months have passed since I’ve started this website, and this is my 107th article. So friends, lets celebrate! On this note, I’ll share one thing that has irritated me a lot in the past few days! To spread awareness about my daily articles, I recently joined facebook. Also driven by one more reason- I wanted to socialize. A stupid friend complained that these days, I’ve become a baba with beard who has lost touch from all regular guy stuff (hooting girls, discussing filth). So I hopped in! I was welcomed by my best friend-
Did you notice my smile? Atleast, I was happy to be noticed! It was just around the time ‘My name is Khan’ was released. This was the time when facebook (and twitter) was flooded with ‘my name is crap and I don’t give a dammn’ statuses. Here are a few examples I came across-1) My name is Rakhi and I am a Virgin 2) My name is Bal. My Nemesis is Khan 3) My name is Tiger and I wish Tiger Woods was one amongst us! Our population would not have gone down to 1411 4) My name is Obama. Yes we khan
5) My name is Sourav and I’m not funny 😦
Soon I realized facebook is all about horoscopes, mafia wars and an idiotic game called farmville, which has its graphics drawn straight from the video games of 1990s! I wish our virtual farmers were left in the middle of Vidarbha to grow cotton. Secondly, I came across something called “the hot girl pseudonym” as researched by my friend Jayanth Tadinada. He claims that it is lot easier for a girl to get recognition on the internet than it is for a guy. Even when she writes about her boring (and often narcissistic) shopping “adventures” or neighbor’s cute puppies, she gets two pages worth of likes and lols. And to add to it, she fights for women reservation 😀 Read his article here.
Maybe I’m an idiot, but I haven’t understood the idea behind ‘lol’. Till date, I have not accepted any comment on this website that has a ‘lol’ in it. Imagine Gabbar Singh’s legendary dialogue followed by a ‘lol’! 😦 I hate the pics these wannabes upload in their facebook albums. A girl showing her cleavage is her birth right. I am not gonna voice against it and incur the wrath of male readers. But guys showing their cleavages! If you have buttons in your shirt, button it up. Unbuttoning the top 4 buttons and revealing your chest doesn’t make you look cool. Your chest hair is disgusting and given a chance, I’d happily pluck them off. No, let me speak! I’ve posted over 100 articles, Bal Thakarey won’t shut his mouth and I’m not gonna stop writing!
Now, from a web developer’s perspective, Why the hell are the two chat lists present- one on the left side bar and one on the bottom toolbar. Only Dan Brown can find an answer to it! To make things worse, facebook is still using AJAX chat functionality! It bloody hangs! So finally I decided to leave. But where is the logout icon? Even when I have to close this crap, I have to click the ‘Account’ tab which would then drop down and show a list of tabs and ‘logout’ is at the bottom of the list. Is this what user friendliness is all about? But like a classic example of hypocrisy, I’ll still continue with facebook because of the socialization and site awareness bakwaas I did earlier… Join me here!
