Jaybird gets honors for the comment of the day:
Anyway, don’t expect *TOO* much of me on Facebook. I’ve promisciously friended people. Not in the “please help me and get a free cow” sense of the word, but I’ve friended:
High School Friends
Some of these people are evangelical christians. Some of them are evangelical atheists. Some of them are flaming lefties. Some of them are unreconstructed reactionaries. This means that I can’t say so much as “Happy Easter! Eat the ears of your chocolate bunnies first!” without starting a fight.
The first comment would be “Easter isn’t about chocolate or bunnies, Jay. Christ is Risen! CHRIST IS RISEN INDEED!”
And the second comment would be “HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR MITHRAIC FERTILITY SYMBOLISM!”
And, god knows, the third comment would be “I haven’t had any chocolate since I found out I was diabetic! I am hurt that you weren’t more sensitive in your status today.”
So I generally just talk about movies or videogames or trivial crap about the state of my day.
According to some quiz I took, about half of my friends (that filled out the profile entry) lean in one direction and about a third lean in the other direction with the final sixth being libertarians or other. I don’t know the Christian/Athiest/Other distribution, but I’ve got some loud members of each of the first two. Nearly everybody hates the BCS except one… and, of course, me.
