Goodbye Facebook

Once again, someone -- or some disembodied electronic entity -- has slipped into my Facebook account and emailed everyone on it a message, supposedly from me, saying, "Hey open this!"  A virus of course. 

But since I hardly ever use Facebook, I just deleted the whole dang thing.  I suspect there are lots of people wondering if I'm dead. 

So I wanted to let you wonderful folks who follow me on Blogspot know that I am not dead.  Although the next few days will be quiet, I think.

Of course, if the disembodied hack actually had away of killing me and I really was dead, it could also probably write a blog just like this to fool you into thinking I'm still alive. will I be able to prove that I'm alive?   Deep question.


  1. "... I think therefore I am...." Descarts.

  2. You would be only in trouble in proving yourself live and real if you ever had to get a birth certificate some 20 years after a legal name change!

  3. Are you sure you're alive? Are you even real...? How would we know?!

  4. Hmmm, I am at that point I dislike facebook...kind of boring, but great for photo swaps with son, and friends in Texas. I agree with Ginger...

  5. No techie hack could have your sense of humor. We'd know right away!

    Unless the techie hack really did have your sense of humor, then, of course, we'd only think we knew.

    Hmmmmm. This is a tough one Mark (if in fact you actually are Mark).

  6. Oh that really stinks. I do worry about that on FB because I've heard some strange stories. I'm not on there very often but I find it a fun way to keep in touch with some people.

    Hopefully, you really are who you say you are...but we can't even check your photo ID. :)

  7. We have no way of knowing if you are still with us or not. You could write directions for someone who knows your computer to send out a message to us all. But then we aren't even sure anyone else knows you. You don't even know if we are really out here. I don't even know if I am out here.

  8. Facebook is totally worthless; you're not.
