I forgot the cardinal rule of facebook today...

Facebook is not a place for actual discussion. It has all the appearance of a place for discussion, but don't you dare try to have one! Facebook is a place to post memes trivializing important discussions down to a soundbite and seeing which of your friends agrees with your particular idiosyncracies so they may contribute to your echo chamber. God forbid you learn something or change your position on anything.

Dear Trump Supporters, WTF?

You're fighting for the Christian soul of the nation because you're worried about Muslim infiltration? The Constitution, that you claim to love so much, provides freedom of religion for the citizens of the United States and a separation between church and state in the government, so this is not a Christian nation. While most of the people are Christian, the government is not and there is no mandate that the people of this country are Christian, and can never be under the Constitution by design. Contrary to your xenophobic beliefs Muslims are welcome in this country and there is nothing legal you can do about them coming here.

Oh, you're posting memes about the other candidates but they only contain false information? Okay, let me refute that with a few charts and graphs, and some facts about what the truth is. Oh, you "heard Trump speak and that's enough for you" to decide to vote for him? Maybe you should research a little about economic policy from the government's standpoint instead of a business' standpoint. This country is not a business. Not going to do that? That's okay, I'm sure your chosen candidate hasn't bothered to do it either, just like you. You're posting memes to "lighten things up" during this election? Fighting sound bites with sound bites is how we prove the populace is stupid. Can we please have a serious discussion here? This shit is important.

People suck at choosing passcodes

I work in a commercial building that, unbeknownst to me before this morning, doesn't open until 8am. Made it into work a little early today only to find myself locked out of the building. But there was a handy little keypad next to the door. What could the entry code be? Well, let's try the street address. Holy shit, that worked.

What's the deal with people wanting to go stay in a cabin with no electricity or running water for a month in exchange for $100,000?

Look, if you want to go stay in a cabin like that go rent one. There's plenty. No one is going to give you $100k for it, though, unless this is the advertising for some upcoming reality show of which I'm unaware. Seriously though, no one would care if you went and lived in a cabin off grid for a month. Instead of posting about it go do it. Please. That's one less car on the road for a month.
