I don't know man, I get a lot of naked pics sent to me through there. I just wish more of them were women :laugh: I just figured they had me mixed up with Doug. I've been using a clone of his account since he deactivated it last year. :cheers  /'/  V:;

I don't get all the facebook hate. The reporting on the latest supposed bombshell seems to be vapid political nonsense. Facebook is a tool like a pipe wrench.  Yes, one can murder grandma with a pipe wrench, but that does not make the pipe wrench evil.

As far as news feeds go, who in the fuck in their right mind allows google, facebook to  suggest content.

A pipewrench doesn't have an internet connection and a company running interference for it.

I feel FB has the potential to expose our credulity, our tribal biases, and our ignorance.

The "pipe wrench" analogy is interesting, but I know of no one that has been manipulated by a pipe wrench or has become obsessed or addicted to the tool.

Only humans can create something evil, and FB has the capacity to be vile.

An FYI for my fishy/outdoor friends.

I've literally lived, worked and played outside my whole life.

I'm a pre-sunscreen era guy. 62 y.o. We used oils and stuff to get a darker suntan!

Never wore sunglasses at work. IMHO, tough to sell if you can't look someone in the eye.

Fast forward after 45+ years of working/basting in the sun.

Dermatologist visits stared 8ish years ago.

Every 6 months. Lots of pre-cancerous stuff frozen off on head and face.

Cataracts repaired 2 years ago. Eyesight is great!

New, aggressive dermatologist. 2nd session of photo dynamic therapy today.

Cancer drug cream on face and scalp (clipped bald as a baby, BTW).

UV light therapy for 16 min. 40 sec. Yes, that precise!

Anyhow, I look like a lobster.

But I'm cancer free. Knock on wood. The odds are against me.

My dad died of esophageal cancer at 58. Yeah. That sucked.

Anyhow, take care of yourselves. Take precautions.

Esp on open water.

Now, I wear long sleeves most days. Buffs. Wide brim hats.

Sun gloves. SPF 50 lotion.

I have a good friend who had melanoma in his early 20's.

He's done these precautions for almost 20 years.

He has 2 young kids he'd like to see for a long time.

Play hard. Play smart.
