The Net
Facebook in a nutshell:

Person #1 - This is a picture I took.

Person #2 - I like that.

Person #3 - I like that.

Person #4 - I like that.

Person # 5 - I like that.

Person #6 - I got an A on my midterm.

Person #1 - I like that.

Person #2 - I like that.

Person #3 - I like that.

Person #4 - I like that.

Person #5 - I like that.

And this is why I don't use Facebook.  It's not because I'm trying to be a social rebel.  It's because it's fucking retarded.  There, now people can stop asking me why I'm not on Facebook.  Except, no, they can't, because no one will read this.  Because it's not on Facebook.

However, I am extremely excited about The Social Network.  According to the reviews it's getting, it's maybe the best movie since The Godfather.  Nonetheless, I keep hearing people say things like, "Why would anyone want to see that?"  Well, I'll give you two good reasons: David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin.  It's like a dream team.

This is what I hate: hand soap that makes your hands smell strongly of foam rubber.  Why does such a product even exist?

Now The Sound is doing what they call "Alphabet Soup," in which the title of every song they play has to begin with the last letter of the title of the previous song.  And they're doing it all day.  It's so silly and pointless, and I love it!  Those Mormons know how to run a radio station.  Say what you will about the LDS, but they provide a lot of good things: a cool radio station, pretty architecture, and hot missionaries (okay, so I have a Mormon fetish.  It's those damn white shirts and ties and the backpacks).

In other (albeit less) words, the exact same as LJ.

LJ is a blog site. How is Facebook the exact same thing?

If you go down your friends' list on LJ it's basically people talking about things that happened lately, what they like or dislike, or posting pictures. I usually don't have time to spend half an hour or longer writing about everything I want to in several paragraphs. When I need to go into greater detail I will use my LJ but otherwise if I want to let friends and family know things that are going on I can do so in ten seconds with my FB. It's not exactly the same thing but a similar idea.
