I don't mind the fake quotes attributed to famous people when it's obviously a joke. Like this for example



I've seen heaps of funny ones like that attributed to MLK, Albert Einstein, etc. It's the ones you speak about, "insightful", "inspirational", "meaningful" quotes attributed to famous figures that are fake, that piss me off.

oh yeah, i don't mean the obvious joke ones, but rather ones in the vein of the fake marilyn monroe quotes, where the person posting it seems to think the historical figure said it. sometimes i wonder if the person even knows who the hell these people are and just share the quote because it sounds deep and meaningful.

Anyone who has ever tweeted, Facebook status'd, or instagramed meal should be stabbed with the utensil they then used to eat it.

I recall Dairy Queen ads asking people to tweet pictures of their $5 value meal or whatever. I can't for the life of me imagine a scenario in which someone would actually do that. Much like Hulu giving you the option to tweet the ads they show.

Here's today's two minutes of your life you'll never get back

After I saw this, I put down my phone and didn't pick it up for the rest of the day...

I think I know what that is without having to click it... I wonder how many people have shared that through their phone (and then not put it down at all).

I had to educate one of my FB friends recently, who posted a probably-ancient screen shot of fake numbers claiming to represent government benefits received by pensioners vs. "illegal immigrants and refugees". I provided links debunking the bogus figures (fortunately this gave me time to calm down sufficiently to avoid violence), and we exchanged a few comments. Five minutes later one of his other friends commented in righteous outrage "if this is true". I had to comment again just to point him at the links I'd already posted.

Conclusion: a depressing percentage of the human race would rather believe something that makes them angry than spend 10 seconds googling or even thinking.

Ohhh I've seen at least 15 people post those figures. I always comment on them. Should I just leave it? Probably. But if stops one idiot from getting sucked it, good. It infuriates me.

You know what really grinds my gears?

When people post Amber Alert pictures, but without checking the information first. Majority of the time the person has long since been found.

But, people's hearts are in the right place, obviously, so I don't complain too much about it.

This bullshit is old.

Also, it was probably shot on the phone they're telling us to stop using.

I had to respond to it not just because it was grossly offensive to me, but mostly because it was plain, factually WRONG. I can bite my tongue if it's just someone's opinion that annoys me, but I don't think anyone should let blatant lies that are designed to fuel bigotry go unchallenged.

So what, are these people your (plural you) friends for you to be receiving this stuff? If so, why?

Yep, I can't believe anyone could be stupid enough to think there is such a thing as "annual hardship allowance".
