    Ha Ha. And, another advantage is that you get to look like the dork you really are when you walk like this!

    If only someone could hack FB with a virus that would render it dead in the water permanently. I would gladly contribute to the effort in that Virus's development. Then use it on Insta Gram, Snap-chat and Tik Tok. We might just have a snowball's chance in hell of flattening the curve to our inevitable societal demise.

    Facebook is the wrong terminology. The right ones are Farcebook or F**Kbook.

    But now they changed it to META, which is much more relevant.

    Need to abolish social media and keelhaul the moron that decided putting cameras on a cell phone was a good idea.

    “Social Media” does include Internet forums like CSR. And the old iPhone I keep on the boat the take pictures in hard to reach places has been more use to me then when it was my phone. So I’m more inclined to give the “moron” a medal.

    My mistake on the social media comment, Henry. I meant sites like Facebook, Twitter, etc. As for phones on cameras, there have been many problems because too many people have instant access to a video camera and use them for the wrong reasons. Tiny cameras exist without having a phone attached.

    There was a fight at a local high school a few weeks ago. 4th time this kid has been attacked by the same kid and 3rd time he has suffered a concussion. Picked the kid up and slammed him on his head in the hallway. Kid laid there unconscious while the other kid began stomping on his head. And what happens? Everyone pulls out their cameras to record it. To me that is more of a social media problem than a camera problem and granted, if there were no phones those kids would probably just stand there and cheer him on anyway but it is disgusting that another human can stand there and record while a kid is being attacked like that.

    "To me that is more of a social media problem than a camera problem"

    Lets back up to the root cause, and it has nothing to do with the kids.

    But that's not this thread is about either, so, back to @ocgrant.

    To edit; I don't give a flying F about z-boy. Crazy cool Yacht is only where my comments where pointed.

    Thanks for the post Grant.
