instantjoy, in reply to the concept of a pet being microchipped: "reminds me quite a bit of 1987."

instantjoy, in reply to someone going "...don't you mean 1984?": "yess that one, i couldnt remember bc i read it such a long time ago."

with how often people on LiveJournal compare things to dystopian literature, i'm just amazed anyone would just forget that title. at least she vaguely remembered the book being about "hey something bad and i think technology right?!" so she can properly overreact to the concept of rfid chips.

meta-stupid: inawhile, being full of win, comments here with "God, next thing you know, they'll be freezing books out of existance, just like in Celsius 45." kristy2078, being full of fail, is doing it wrong with "Or burn them like in Fahrenheit 451."

So, if you turn on the radio or television in South Africa (and the rest of the world it seems) you will most probably be accosted by an image or soundbite of Paris Hilton.    A few of my Live journal friends have posted entries about Ms Hilton  - mostly wondering what the big deal is and why this woman (who has really done nothing to justify her fame) is in the news at all when the world has more pressing issues to attend to.

And that there is the question:  Why do we care about the movements of Ms Hilton?  

Most people don't seem to think very highly of the lass and use words like "dumb" and "barbie doll" to describe her.   She is the topic of much debate: her motives, actions and decisions talked about and judged.   I can't help but grin at the irony of the many pages dedicated to "spending less time focusing on Paris Hilton".

My thoughts?  Wake up people!

You think Paris Hilton is stupid?  50% of people in the world are.
Why does the fact that she was born rich come up?  Because money is important : it is the reason you drag your arse out of bed every morning and go to work - probably in a job you are not that fond of.  It's the reason that you don't drive the car you have always wanted, don't wear the clothes that your heart desires, and can't travel, learn scuba diving or horse riding.
Why is she in the media?  Because she gives you something to talk about.
Why do you care?  Because she is the dream realised.  Because the rest of the celebrities out there are "lucky", in that they were born beautiful, can act, dance and sing - and the chances are that you are can't do all of those things.  She is you.  Only rich.

Paris Hilton won the lottery without buying a lottery ticket. 

You love to hate her.   And so do I.

So lets get over it and move on shall we?


Wrong community.   Sorry people.   I have been sufficiently told off.  I deserve the ridicule.  I accept the laughter and abuse.  I am not defensive.  I am the idiot of the day.  I hereby vow that I will never, ever post anything like this in stupid free again.  Apologies.

bestoffreecycle is a fun, if misanthopic, community that mocks posts to Freecycle that don't quite fit the mold of what Freecycle is all about. shaden joins the community, and then is horrified to see that its members are
making fun of Freecycle requests
. She flounces. How DARE you make fun of outlandish requests on Freecycle? On a SNARK community, no less!

No comments yet, but keep an eye out.

My poor subculture

Proving you can macro anything these days, goth_macros is created. Everything is fun and games until saint_ama steps up to the macro plate.

Racist goth wank aka you mean black people can't be goth? (deleted)

Retaliation macros ensue(deleted), as well as massive tagging on the post proclaiming it as fail. saint_ama keeps up the lulz by fighting with everyone and trying to be edgy and sarcastic.

Ah, goths. Why can't we all just wear eyeliner and get along?

Edit: Flounce! Internet goths are serious business, apparently (deleted)

Edit 2: Aren't we not supposed to go and provoke and troll the stupid? Plus, grudge wank/macros = not funny (deleted)

Edit 3: Community goes boom and mod deletes nearly everything

Yes, it's an ONTD stupid.

And yes, that is like shooting particularly immobile fish in a barrel, but according to the wonderful anthonyy23, giggling makes you a bitch.

Oh, crap, I'm a bitch!

Also: unlocked at time of post.


Over in thequestionclub, riotfairy posts a question. She asks, "I'm going grocery shopping in the morning and I need a diet-friendly grocery list. Help?"

Cue coflower's entrance. She goes on a bit of a tirade about DIEting. You see, she comes from a family of non-fatties, and she learned everything she knows about diet from her weight-obsessed anorexic step-mother!

brokensemaphore sums it all up nicely by saying "HAH! I knew yesterday it was only a matter of time before you went batshit again!"

I'm on a roll tonight.

But apparently alimony is bad for all women and makes them seem lesser. Yay for judging every situation!



The Internet was invented in 1992!!
Bringing you quality stupid since 2005!
