I Really Don't Get It

?% | 1

Okay, here's what I don't quite understand:

What the fuck is the big deal about Myspace.com?

Seriously. I joined it out of boredom one night about six months before the big explosion of "OMG what's your Myspace?" I didn't get the point of it then, I don't get the point of it now. A lot of my friends are totally addicted to it and I don't understand why. It isn't like it does anything. Sure you can blog but there are 4551486246466 other websites that let you blog, their idea of "message boards" are pitiful at best and there are 4665768414238574 other websites that let you set up your own profile and "private message" other users on your "friends list". Oh and as for customization? Yeah, there are 385957197513461 other websites that let ya do that, too.

Can any of my fellow NAOees explain this phenonemon?

Its rather simple. Just follow these steps:

Go to a carnival completely wasted on Jack.

Get on the spinning top ride UPSIDEDOWN and ride it.

Throw up, rinse, and repeat.

Granted you don't actually learn anything its far more fun that trying to understand it. Thanks be to fucking peer pressure I also have one...

Re: I Really Don't Get It

I'm not even sure that would work really. But thanks for the advice, I'll give it a shot next time there's a carnival in town. But I may sunstitute Jack for Josť. ;)

As long as its hard liquor, none of this pansy "beer" bullshit, then it should work... :P

Re: I Really Don't Get It

You can also put hundreds of photos on one page and add video clips of your favourite bands that express exactly the way you feel as a superficial depressed teenager in the midst of puberty.
Or that's what those Myspace pages I've seen suggest anyway.

When life hands you a lemon, that's 40% of your RDA of vitamin C taken care of.

You kidding me? They don't put exactly how they feel, they have no clue how they feel, thats why they take 5.69*10^54 quizzes to tell them how they feel and how good at sex they would be if they could get some :P

Re: I Really Don't Get It

I must say, I've never seen it like that, but it makes perfect sense!

Re: I Really Don't Get It

Ah, yes, the video/music clips that make me want to hurt small furry animals. But that's part of a much different rant that may or may not bless the lovely pages of the NAO. Anyway, you're right about that, so is eljefe about the exponential number of quizes involved in the making of a myspace page. At least its semi-amusing to jack with the stylings of the page when the insomnia kicks in at three in the morning and there is absolutely nothing else to do.
