The Types of Facebook Photo Commenters

The 14-year-old Boy

What they comment on: A girl's picture (a "pretty" one)

What they say: " look retarded"
"EWW don't take pictures lol"

Why they say it: Young teenage boys do not know how to talk to girls, and think insulting a girl will make them like them. They have not yet grown the balls to know how to compliment, and get by this insecurity by doing the complete opposite. About 126% of 12-17 year old boys will do this.

Why Text is a Crappy Form of Communication

Our generation has grown up with and become completely accustomed to this rise of digital communication. We praise its availability everyday, citing common advantages such as "it's faster for me to text than to call them" and "I don't really feel like talking to this person, I'll just IM them". These things are what make digital communication so convenient, and sure, it's easy. You can send people mass e-mails or texts to let them know about that meeting tomorrow night, and it will all be done in just a few seconds.

Unfortunately, there are obvious disadvantages, and these disadvantages stem from its misuse. People these days have become accustomed to using it in place of face-to-face contact.Teenagers are texting constantly, and most of the time spent on the computer involves an instant messaging program open in the background. What people don't realize is that these faceless forms of communication lack the ability to convey emotion, and do nothing to further relationships and more often than not cause problems due to misunderstandings.

My Top 5 Cartoons of the '90's

I grew up in the '90's, and while I don't know about previous generations, I personally think the '90's had the best Saturday morning cartoons ever. It was the golden age. Me? I watched a crap load of cartoons; every episode of every cartoon at least ten times each. In recent years (2001-present), Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network have lost all of its great classics (except for Spongebob) and have been pumping out crap after crap after crap. It really makes one miss the old days, when cartoons were actually good. I'm feeling the nostalgia right now, so here's my list of the top 5 cartoons (English speaking of course).
