Status Memes: Compare, contrast, and do neither

Two different statuses quoting the same statistics…

asked Jesus,”How much do you love me?” Jesus replied “This much”, and stretched his arms on the cross and died. If you believe in God put this in your status. 97% of you won’t put this in your status. When Jesus died on the cross he was thinking of you. 3% of you will stand up for him and put this in your status!!!

97% of teens would cry if they saw Robert Pattison (Edward Cullen from Twilight) standing on top of a sky scraper, about to jump. If you’re one of the 3% who would sit there eating pop corn screaming “DO A FLIP YOU SPARKLY F$#%^T!” then copy and paste this as your status haha this is funny!

There’s something fishy going on here.

So I wrote this one. I kind of hope it starts a Facebook revolution:

97% of status updates are from the 3% of people who copy and paste or follow the crowd. Come up with original and interesting stuff about yourself or stop thinking your status is making a difference. Facebook is for self promotion and posting of embarrassing pictures. Not for sharing your knowledge of the radio alphabet and stupid statistics. If you’re sick of the degeneration of Facebook statuses don’t copy this.

Status Synchronicity: Sultanas

I have this weird fixation with Facebook Status synchronicity occurring between non-mutual friends. I’ve decided I’m going to post them as they occur (sans names because I respect privacy). If a random Facebook friends stumbles here and identifies themself I will give them a prize of the value of a Freddo Frog.

 

Here are the first two, from within 15 minutes of each other today.

Friend 1: just received a cheque for $3 because my sultanas tasted minty.
Friend 2: Just found a grape seed in a sultana. Wow, this is the best day eva…

Was this you? Claim your prizeā€¦
