It is said that the lonely eagle flies to the mountain peaks while the lowly
ant crawls the ground, but cannot the soul of the ant soar as high as the eagle?

You're funny.
Je bent grappig.
Vous êtes rigolo.
Sie sind lustig.

I see a lot of UFOs, because I don't trust myself to reliably identify things that are flying far away.

Drunk thoughts 

I did it. Quit Facebook. I had many personal reasons, but philosophically, what moved me was Aral Balkan’s critique based on cyborg ontology and theory of surveillance capitalism. This, combined with a vision for decentralized planetary democracy, combined also w/ @Rushkoff's point about it just not being nice to your friends to link them there (like poor hygiene, or knowingly spreading a disease) finally broke my inertia.

Where my grandmother worked, they had problems with snacks and other food items disappearing, figuring they were being eaten by the night cleaning crew, right out of people's desks and the fridge.

She decided to bake some ex-lax brownies and have everyone put them in their desk. The brownies were gone the next day when they came in.

They never had a problem with any food disappearing ever again.

Your choice will impact my career. Choose wisely, and boost this post!

I shouldn't ask people to boost a post while they're all sleeping.
