Facebook & Myspace

I'm watched the Dr. Phil show today about myspace and facebook.  I would have to say people need to open their eyes.  Facebook is fun, but some people have become so superficial through using these social networking sites and too many people are screwing up the real relationships in their life for relationships with others on the net.  You can't blame Facebook or the other social networking sites. It's a business, they are there to make money.  It's the people using these sites that take things to far.  According to the latest report put out, facebook is cited in 1 out of 5 divorces. People screw up their marriages and relationships for brief online encounters with others.  They go from one person to the next. Is it really worth ruining your marriages and relationships for brief encounters with people online.  Pictures can be deceiving and they can post anything they want to online.  That doesn't mean it's real.  The average person who you probably wouldn't give a second look in the real world has figured out ways to catch attention of people online. Did you ever stop and think that if they have to use the internet to get someone, maybe they are not worth your time and effort? Maybe they are on the internet meeting people because they have a difficult time meeting people in the real world and lack the social skills and appearance to do so in the real world. Online is a fantasy world and people need to wake up. In my opinion, people are getting lost in the online world and are forgetting about the ones in their life that are there for them in the real world.

Detroit Rated In The Top Ten Worst Places In The World?

CNN rated Detroit, Michigan in the top ten most dangerous places in the world, right up there with Baghdad. Seriously, I know Detroit is bad. But, come on. I have been in Irag, and I would much rather be live 30 minutes outside of Detroit than 30 minutes outside of Baghdad. I haven't had to worry about a bomb going off while I'm sitting in my home yet.  But, when I was in Irag, the post office was bombed. Everyone was scared at first, then everything went back to normal shortly after the bomb going off. It's a way of life in the Middle East. I wasn't even in Baghdad, I was in Samawa. I think that is a serious over statement about Detroit. It is farely safe to walk around in Detroit during the day, but you never now when a bomb is going to go off in Bagdad, day or night. I am sure I could come up with my own top ten worst places in the world to be, but Detroit would be up there in the top ten.
