Yeah, I guess the thing for me is i don't post things that I would only feel comfortable doing with "some anonymity." So maybe that's why I don't get it. It just seems like a more limited format to me.

In other news, everytime someone mentions a keggle here, I picture a woman with her own beer tap.

Dont look at me like that.

But kids have no self-filters.

Here's a copy of my last conversation with my daughter (the mother of my two-year-old grandon):

Ok. That's it. Time to up my amount of daily kegels.. Peeing your pants sucks!!!

Me: I do NOT want to know what prompted that moment of self discovery.

This made me chuckle.

Oh, on an off topic... Yooper, have YOU ever done anything that might cause embarrassment to her, say on a public forum???

Speaking of sharts,I was on youtube the last 4 days or so looking at model rockets. A hobby I was into as a teen designing them. Ran across a vid of one of those big,high powered muti-K rockets. It & the solid motor propelling it were called a sonic skidmark.
I couldn't resist replying,"& there you have it folks,the world's 1st super sonic shart!". They do sound like a butt jet at that...but the name really cracked up my benny hill side.

I've been on a hiring spree across the country and most of these recent college grads have friended me on FB which gives me a chance to look at photos of their their extra-curricular activities. I don't mind a few pictures of their drunken antics but I would be concerned if there were lots of pictures of them passed out in lawn chairs or face down in the yard. It makes me feel like a creepy old man but I want to know something about them before they start working for me.

Let me just say this.

I "unfriended" Homercidal.

I remember when Facebook came out and it was exclusive to just college students. Then opened it up to everyone and it went downhill. My parents are on it and I've declined their friend requests multiple times. They don't understand that they are my parents and not my friends, and that degree of separation is good for all of us. Plus I don't want to delete every embarrassing picture or comment that they wouldn't like.

Now it seems like Facebook has devolved into constant baby picture updates - at least that seems to be what a lot of my peer group is doing now.
