Does anyone know what the frack Google + is all about. And will switching it off cause Mountain View to have a hissyfit (itself might be sufficient reason). Somehow or other it installed when I set things up on the new computer. When it came out a few years ago and when at the time google were pushing it I made certain it never got onto the old one, but somehow it’s now prompting me with mails from blog posts that went seamlessly into Reader before. And anyway how ‘do’ you switch it off.
Catfishing; Now that was a totally new one on me. It seems the term sourced itself in a 2010 film which explained the phenomenon. It seems there are people out there that dream up false ID for themselves on FB, Twitter and other such sites. They have entire transcripts from uni’s, high schools, employment histories. All with stories. For why. Well it seems these scum want to ‘fuck’ with some poor lonely person that will believe them. And why wouldn’t you believe them. Why would you instantly assume the ‘relationship’ you are having is totally fake and what sort of fucked up mind would do it.
Manti T’eo is an American college football player with Notre Dame. He was caught in such a sting. But what lifted his experience well above was the death of his granny, followed within days the death of his ‘on-line’ girl. Can you imagine the hell that man was in on the passing of his Nan. And then to have it raised by infinity by this scum. I can only think that this bastard was out to utterly destroy T’eo from the core.
I cannot for the life of me think what crime this dirt committed but I’m sure something could be dreamt up so we could all see them. It really wouldn’t matter if they are committed to jail or not. Just so we could see the person.

I rarely use four letter words. Mostly I can find an actual adjective that will fit better. But I reserve the right to use them when they fit the context. Using ‘To fuck with someone’ here is apt, as is the description of the horrible twisted mind being ‘fucked up’.
