Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses



This is one of the creepiest things I've ever seen, I really do not understand why somebody would post that on Facebook. If I had an ultrasound and found out that that's what the inside of my belly looked like I would be more frightened than proud

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

I forbid my wife from posting the ultrasound pictures on facebook. Told her she can just email them to her mom if she wants them. Then her mother posted them on facebook and tagged both of us.

+1, I actually think it's fascinating.

I understand how it's not for everyone, though, so yeah, maybe FB isn't the place for it. I almost think the early ultrasound pics where the fetus is just a white dot are more acceptable.

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

Sure the ultrasounds are cool but its retarded to post that on facebook. If you wanna post a couple belly pics, fine. Just not one every day or every week like some girls think is necessary. But we don't need proof that there's an actual baby in there. And an entire page/album of basically the same picture, thats completely ridiculous.

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

A girl posted one of those ultrasound pics on FB and I was creeped out the first time I saw it. Last ultrasounds I saw were probably from the '80s and didn't look like some creepy "realistic" wax figure.

I guess I don't blame women for wanting to post them, I mean they can see their kid already, which is pretty cool for them. But those images are still creepy. I'll get used to seeing them though.

They are creepy - but not really disturbing creepy (if that makes sense).

What's the deal with people who post all 197 pictures of their beach vacation, many of which are exactly the same shot, just a very slightly different pose?

Can't they do some editing, only put up the best pictures?

Ah, I thought it was a single picture (made up of all the individual pictures). I whole-heartedly agree with your objection.

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

People who post a picture/status and are then the first to like it themselves.

One girl who's ALWAYS complaining about her allergies, noise from her neighbours, being tired, getting screwed over by 'a so-called friend'.. man the f*** up already and stop asking for pity.

Pictures of sushi, as if it's still really special and some kind of accomplishment to eat it.

Pictures of any food bother me*. I don't give a **** what you are about to eat or how good it looks. Almost-fully-eaten plate pictures are even worse. For some reason, pics of draft beers or wine don't bother me, though. I can't really imagine being about to eat something awesome and thinking "oh wait I should really document this meal that will disappear in 10 minutes. My friends might want to have photographic documentation of how awesome I am."

*Though I don't mind perusing the bbq thread on 2+2. I just don't care about your ****ing half-eaten crab leg from the 4th night of your honeymoon.

disagree, i think the like function can imply the necessary ironic detachment to posting a status/picture in the first place. to really emphasize it, add a comment write after you post it and like the comment as well.
