Came across this – original version said to be written by someone from the UK – and I thought it’s too hilarious not to share it:
Right now, I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles. So every day, I walk down the streets and tell passers-by what I ate, how I feel, what I did the day before, what I am doing, what I will do next…
I also give them pictures of my family, my dog and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, mowing the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch and doing what anybody and everybody does every day.
I also listen the conversations of others, give them the “thumbs up” and tell them I like what they do them and give them my opinion on every subject that interest me…whether it interests them or not.
I also poke strangers at random and hope they poke me back.
And just like Facebook, it works!
I already have four people who are following me: two policemen, a private investigator and a psychiatrist.
