Lent starts today, commemorating a story of Jesus and some friends trapped in a desert, starving, hot, miserable, and tempted by Satan. A sign of piety. It’s also a joyless sign of how cripplingly dependant we are to Facebook.
The thought behind Lent, if I’ve review this Wikipedia entry correctly, is giving adult a clamp (let’s say, smoking, greasy foods, or booze) and adding an activity that brings we closer to God. Like, we don’t know, assisting broach babies (???). But a giving up bit is what gets a many attention, as it’s a lot easier to gloat about your deprivations, quite in a age of easy online sharing. But some discerning acid shows that a best proceed a teens, tweens, and other American imbeciles can bond their lives to a Biblical pang of Christ is to abandon Twitter or FB for a few weeks. Which is… arrange of blank a point.
What these dual don’t comprehend is that by tweeting about giving adult Twitter for Lent on a initial day of Lent they’ve already busted Lent and are going to Hell. Bye.
This is my final chatter for a subsequent 40 days. Giving adult Facebook and chatter for lent!

Tempted by a Facebook mobile app as Jesus was tempted by a Devil himself. This is low stuff, @Nagz2007.
Here’s a design we found on Google Image Search of Jesus in a desert. we gamble he wished he had Facebook so he could poke his buds.
There competence be an evidence that Facebook indeed is one of a good vices of a time, some-more mortal to a self and others than any candy bar or bottle of beer, some-more alienating than any cloud of cigarette fume or swear word. Or maybe it’s only a easiest purgation magnitude accessible to us, and hey, during slightest we’ve got Pinterest, y’all!
