I'm thinking I should maybe stay from Facebook for a while. Think I am having a bullshit overload.
Tempts me to easily to stir stuff I shouldn't.

This is what I do with the rainfall in town. Look at the comment at the bottom. Caps lock segregation! Apartheid is alive and well.

Perhaps they should consider changing the name from Facebook to Facepalm...

Grr. I am quite open with my atheism, even on FB, so why would FB suggest pages like this to me?

Maybe Mark Zuckerberg is trying to save you!

Xtianity is all about converting souls. Anyway, its Facebook for gods sake! What did you expect? Intellectual stimulating conversations?

I actually suspect it's very simple:

Xtian pastors are quite keen to secure their place in heaven by securing some atheists. They probably specifically target us.

"Sensitive" people are now carefully examining the entire universe, trying to find something to be "offended" at. It won't stop until such time as the "offenders" learn to stop apologizing, and saying "freck off" instead. — brianvds, The ShoutBox Classics, 02/07/2018.

Interesting to note that magnesium sulphate in solution converts acoustic energy into thermal energy. Perhaps I should dump a few kilograms of Epsom salts in the swimming pool mid-September, and ask one of the soprano kerktannies to sing a few hymns next to it for a week. Can take my first ghoef early October!

When even the salesman is so unsure of his product he feels the need to give you a plan B.

This is what Facebook suggest to me to follow.  (wtf!!) I already got Stars Forecasting and Psychic reading suggestions but this is a new low.
