Friended John Adams

I'm not a big Facebook person. I think I've been on for a year? Maybe more? I thought I would get addicted, but I vastly overestimated how much free time I have to play online. And I also vastly overestimated how much I would be interested in stalking people from my previous lives. Sure I looked up a few high school crushes or long-lost college friends ... but there weren't that many.

So yeah, I'm not on Facebook very much. But this morning I did get a request to friend John Adams, who is looking for "Networking," and whose status since last Tuesday is, "Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." And I accepted the request.

His employer is United States Congress, and he is a fan of Statler and Waldorf.

It's "inside jokes" like this that make me value social media.

I love stuff like that :) The even better ones are the clever jokes that targetted ignorant people don't get (like the Flying Spaghetti Monster stuff)
