Digital Crack! Facebook Better Than SEX!

Last week I told you how pathetic you are, acting as if twitter were a life-support device you couldn't exist without. Now comes word that you Sheeples are more likely to enjoy posting a line or two on facebook than engaging in sex. One facebooker likened it to "pleasuring yourself without the mess." Indeed!

This will help with
(1) Stopping the spread of HIV/Aids
(2) Family Planning
(3) Chinese efforts at population control - of course Sina could create it's own version - PeoplesBook!

Furthermore, all sexual deviants and rapists should be issued state-owned laptops that can only access facebook, as a deterrent to anti-social crime! It's wonderful!

Get the masses distracted, involved and off-guard has always been part of military strategy for Trojan Horse events, coups and government takeovers. Like that car accident you never saw coming.

THE STUDY ::: Diana Tamir and Jason Mitchell of Harvard’s Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab conducted the study and recently published a report showing that people find it rewarding to talk about themselves, especially if others are listening, (Well, D'oh!) The paper concludes "self disclosure" produces a response in the region of the brain associated with dopamine, the main chemical associated with pleasure or the anticipation of a reward.

Tamir & Mitchell say most folks devote 30 to 40 percent of their everyday speech to "informing others of their own subjective experiences" but put that on social media, and they devote nearly 80 percent!

The study was published last month in an edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
