dont worry pops, social networking is just a fad--like rock music!
I would never want anyone to (be able to) know where I was, when, and with whom. Especially when photographs are a part of the equation.

Sometimes go out to check-in at other places, post that I'm going to be there for 5-6 hours, and actually go home and wait with a shotgun for people to rob me.
I only check into places if theres a "nanna nanna boo-boo, I'm at a cooler place that you" scenario that follows with.
Next week on my business trip, time permitting, I'll be a the NFL Hall of Fame. You can bet if I make it I'll be checking in.
Some of you guys are making strange leaps of logic in response to a JOKE.
The dynamics of internet has left me seriously disillusioned with our world.
It's become a breeding ground for the absolute cheapest shots possible towards total strangers without any fear of retribution or contest. People aren't like that in real life... If you get into a disagreement about something trivial at the bus stop, do you call each other "faggots" or swear at each other or talk about how you f*ck each others Mums? No... We're much better than that when there's a real human with a real presence, face and a voice. A casual mood and tone presents a good, friendly debate and by the time the bus boarded it wouldn't matter. But the minute identities are gone it's the inside of a sewage plant converted to text.
That's just the comments... Think about what YouTube allows us to do. It's great for information, entertainment and sharing. But when a kid makes the usual kid stuff that we've all done before, that kid isn't just sharing it to their friends to giggle at and for them to giggle at later on in life... but the whole world.
We've all done some funny and embarrassing things as kids... But we didn't have any way of being publicly embarrassed all around the world for... The only people who'd have a laugh at our expense were our friends/enemies/parents who got ahold of the tape.
But instead of that happening to Star Wars kid for example, he's all over the world even getting referenced in popular culture. Lawsuits came out of it.
Cry foul all you want and say how he needs to "toughen up". Compare it to "back in your day". But remember that back in your day, this wasn't possible. It feels a lot different when you actually put yourself in the shows of a young kid who's just been publicly humiliated on a global level.
So they become a "meme" and suffer a global level or bullying over the internet just for being kids until the next one does it.
It's ruining our sh!t and I started out with zero faith in humanity. Now it's in the minuses.

If this is a joke, I think you missed the punchline. Either that, or I don't get it.FTR, I think this is a moronic activity if for no other reason than you alert the thieves that you are NOT at home. On a broader scale, how narcissistic must you be to believe that ANYONE cares that you went to Burger King, the ballpark, the restroom, etc.?
Nope. No sympathy here.
Many folks have their address, phone number, and email listed in their profiles, newking.
Jumble, you're correct: you don't get it.
BTW, there is an emoticon to the left of the thread title intended to assist those with humor deficits with comprehending the gist of the thread.
