What a load of w*nk! And why anyone would follow the instructions and c&p it as their status is just unbelievable! Some people really are thick (OK, I've copied and pasted it here, but I'd never perpetuate it on FB!)
For the same reason they would fall for phone psychics, Justin Bieber having cancer, Nigerian princes, politicians' promises to fix the economy or any other obvious bull-product!

There are two on mine that make me laugh/despair.

One is a guy who used to be a bit of a dick but has become all postive thinking and seems to think of himself as some kind of inspirational leader. Every morning he is grabbing life and loving going to work etc and wishing us all a great day...high fiving life!!! GOD GIVE ME STRENGTH

The other is a 30 yr woman who gives us about 10-20 statuses a day, all bollox I might add, then occasionally has a rant about ppl that clog up her news feed with shite!!!

I'm still utterly peeing myself laughing at the post about 20 pages back about not being able to believe that Jan is still dead, I know I shouldn't but the wording had me keeled over laughing.

Another annoying one for me is: ''OMG Student life is so absolutely incredible, I haven't had a sober night in weeks, so completely pissed and totally hungover for this lecture. YOLO!''

Fair enough once but not when basically the same status is being posted 10 times a day, yes we get the point, you like your drink, now shut up about it please.

One of my friends has arranged an event for this evening. I bet later they'll be complaining about those who haven't turned up even though they said they would on the event group.

Update: " It's a pity but the guy I liked isn't interested in me romantically :-/...At least I can still be friends with him I guess "
Aw. Poor girl. But why share her innermost thoughts on facebook? That may be the reason for his disinterest. He can see every aspect of their relationship being posted online for her friends to comment on...scary stuff.

I'm a complete and utter twonk who has just posted something completely trivial and/or stupid who thinks it's cool to say YOLO (which I think means "You Only Live Once").

I had a school friend on Facebook who made a point of updating his status to inform everyone of whenever he was going to the gym, clearly just to flatter his ego. He's actually not even muscley yet.

I grew tired of his constant Groundhog Day style updates and removed him.

Right now my FB friends have started using the phrase "fight the whitey" (fighting sickness when drinking). It's SO overused. Every ****ing person is saying it, each of them getting about 10 likes each.

I've never understood it. I go out and get pissed but have NEVER felt the need to head to Facebook and talk about how drunk I was, or how ill i'm feeling the day after. I can't stand it when I read conversations like this (this is like one that's at the top of my news feed right now)

Girl - "Can't believe _________ fell last night, so funny, what a drunk lol"
Boy 1 - "did I really do that?"
Girl - "yeah it was so funny you were so totally steaming lol"
Boy 2 - "Was anyone more drunk than me, though?"
Boy 1 - "Me"
"Boy 2 - "I can't remember walking home lol"
Boy 1 - "I can't remember anything"
"Girl - "safe to say we were all really drunk never drinking again"

It's just so obvious they're trying to look mental because they *gasp* had alcohol. It's like a bunch of 12 year olds stealing alcohol from the fridge when their parents aren't looking.

Your post and the memory of the status update you're referring to is making me laugh and I'm trying to stop, to avoid being asked what's so funny!

It's 'carpe diem' for people too young to have seen Dead Poets Society.

I have a guy on my Facebook who is job hunting, and every few days we go through the same:

"Interview today at 2:00" (followed by good luck hun, hope you get it xx etc.)

"Interview in half an hour... feeling nervous" (followed by more good lucks and you'll be fines)

"Well I think that went OK... feeling positive" (followed by some more encouraging comments)

Then the next day:

"Well another unsuccessful one... sigh. Why doesn't anyone want me?" (followed by generic sympathy comments)

Then he just continues to post depressing statuses for the rest of the day, moaning about everything in his life.

I feel bad for him that he's struggling to find work, but do we really need to go through this every few days?

It's a guy.

And yup, he posts everything on Facebook. Failed dates, thinly-veiled digs at other people, his latest psychotic diagnosis, the 'evils' of capitalism and why we should all adopt to socialism. All that crap. Actually the political preaching is the worst one. He is then aghast when people call him an attention-seeker.

Has it occurred to him that perhaps potential employers see all this crap on his facebook, realise that he's been rejected by others, so move on to the next person?

Apologies for linking to the daily mail, but this one's a classic:

An officer from the West Midlands told how he had advised someone complaining of Facebook abuse to ‘unfriend’ their abuser, only to be told: ‘But I won’t have as many friends'

There are no words, really.

Someone I went to secondary school with posted a picture of her hand holding something small and pink with the caption "Freds died "
Someone asked her what it was and she replied "my baby mice fred. he died"
Why would you post a picture of a dead mouse on Facebook?!
