Facebook face book face book

Book of faces with Facebook reflected in them.

I just walked past someone's front room and they were sitting in front of a laptop clearly on Facebook, because their forehead was clearly slightly bluer than the rest of their face, and it occurred to me that with a sufficiently bright display with an ultraviolet component, just as there used to be screen burn, someone who spends a long time on Facebook could actually have the general features of Facebook tanned into their face, which would provide them with vitamin D. Alternatively, it could just be projected onto their face like in the movies. You could then take photos of people with Facebook face and publish it as a book. This book could then be opened, photographed and projected onto people's faces, and those faces could be published in a book, the Facebook Face Book Face Book, and so on.

As a slight aside, this has two other consequences. One is that a monitor which has UV light could provide vitamin D, and the other is that people who use Facebook too much might eventually develop solar keratoses and eventually melanoma in the shape of the site design, which seems strangely appropriate.

       The upside is people end up with a head full of mindless crap posted by mindless people like me to endlessly mindlessly read.

       This is so weird- I like it! one burned bun!

       So we would all have the HB header burned on our foreheads...

       I can clearly see the cataracts.

       I enjoy the term "facebook face". Enough so to give you a bun.
blissmiss, Oct 07 2011
  

       "Facebook face" would be the exact inverse of "farmer's tan." "Farmville tan," maybe.

       //Farmville tan// gotta use that sometime.

       This is a fine idea for shits and giggles, but I think you should lose the part about injecting any hope of medicinal value into the experience.
XSarenkaX, Oct 07 2011
  

       That's a [nineteenthly] thing. He still believes there's hope for humanity.   

       Poor deluded bastard.
Alterother, Oct 08 2011
  

       The medicinal value is balanced by the carcinogenicity, and how dare you suggest that i think there's hope for humanity?
nineteenthly, Oct 08 2011
  

       Oops... My mistake. Somehow I gleaned from our previous annoconversations that you have the interest of your fellow (hu)man at heart. I do hope you haven't taken insult from my erroneous aspersions.

       ...and if thou gaze long into an abyss,...
4whom, Oct 08 2011
  

       Thou shalt have wasted the day staring down a deep hole. Very seldom in human history has this worked out in anyone's favor.
Alterother, Oct 08 2011
  

       Here's looking at you kid!
4whom, Oct 08 2011
  

       Well it's not like anyone on here does that ever.
nineteenthly, Oct 08 2011
  

       If you two are trying to point out the casual hypocracy of my "wasted a day" quip, in that I have been on this forum all day today, yes, that was semi-intentional.   

       (All others please note that I do not consider HB a waste of time--far from it, in fact. However, in that I have contributed very little of value in my annos today, as is often my wont, I have successfully wasted all of your time with my drivel. Mission accomplished!)
Alterother, Oct 08 2011
  

       [Alt...] I was not trying to point out any hypocracy. I am of the firm opinion that you would have wasted your day regardless, be it here, or anywhere else for that matter.   

       My point was more to the sentience of the abyss itself. The longer you stare into the abyss the more the abyss knows of you. Much like farcebook.   

       I have a sneaky suspicion that [nine...] has been re-reading Nietzcthe (did I spell that right? I can never tell)

       And now, switching to a completely different subject. Is there a facebook page set aside for the Irish?
Ah Supp, Oct 08 2011
  

       Why should their page be set aside from the others?
swimswim, Oct 08 2011
  

       Cause we are the best there is.
blissmiss, Oct 08 2011
  

       Well, Oi was tinking more along da loines of an itsy bitsy teeny weeny soized page fer da little folk. Not meself ye understand.
Ah Supp, Oct 08 2011
  

       //Why should their page be set aside from the others?//   

       So the rest of us don't get any on us.
MikeD, Oct 12 2011
  

       Oi woz only try'n to save deyr bacon fr'm all dat Gammon radiation stuff. Instead of bei'n green dey would look loik dem Smurfs.
