- Facebook == human harvesting.
The film soylent green is about people being harvested for food. That's how I see Facebook. Your details are being harvested for business and advertising. Sure, it can be beneficial to stay in touch with each other, but there's a bigger price to pay. I've come to the decision that the amount of information I'm getting from other people isn't worth the price I'm paying for that lack of privacy and having my details flogged to advertisers.

stopped on my way home to take this shot
I wish I'd taken longer to take it, but it was on a narrow road. It captures the sense of what I wanted. I'll see if I can get a more please shot another day.
