In the (on)line of fire...

In this day and age it has become increasingly difficult to remain private. The government wants you to divulge your every detail every time you buy a loaf of bread. You cannot communicate anymore if you haven't filled out 16 forms in triplicate (in blood) and there are so many conventions that end in "ICA" I've lost count. We blog (erm...), we post, we comment, we even tag ourselves, no matter how em-bare-ass-ing the pics are.
And everyone bitches about it.
Why then, ladies and gentlefolk, do the hordes insist on airing their dirty laundry on social networking sites? Status updates are becoming easy-to-follow threads explaining the hourly evolution of peoples' personal dramas. Pretty soon we're not going to need soapies or private dicks anymore (LIKE Magnum, not FOR Magnum). If you want to know how the argument between person X and person Y is going, simply log onto Spuitpoep and follow both, including their hangers-on's comments and views. Awesome viewing!
Enjoy your Tuesday folks.

  1. I was JUST talking about this yesterday... Too much information and we are overloaded. With crap, quite frankly.

    And FaceBook let me know you had freshly baked cookies on Sunday ... haaa haaa!!
