Research (likely a fucking survey, and we know how useful and reliable those are…) by Ofcom (the independent regulator that don’t do shit when you complain about getting ripped off by BT or Sky etc) out today, and immediately jumped on by the media, says that the average Brit spends nearly half of their waking hours ‘using some sort of technology’.

It says that 13.5 million brits spend a good proportion of that timeĀ  ‘surfing the net’ on their smartphone (no they fucking don’t. Sitting on Facebook playing fucking farmville or whatever it’s called for 5 hours a day does not constitute ‘surfing the net’.)

Well then, what a sad cunt the ‘average Briton’ is. GET A FUCKING LIFE.

Obviously, I don’t have a Facebook account and I don’t have a mobile phone, let alone a ‘smartphone’, because that would mean people could contact me whenever they wanted, and I really can’t think of anything worse. Well, other than sitting on Facebook for hours a day clicking ‘LIKE’ every time your equally sad ‘friends’ post some inane shit on their wall.

I really don’t see the big attraction, even if I were inclined to engage in social interaction with other people, Facebook is an incredibly poorly designed, poorly implemented pile of steaming shit full of gaping security holes. Why the fascination?

Still, Facebook could probably claim responsibility for suicide rates declining, since everyone is too tied up Facebooking to spend any time reflecting on how empty and pointless their sad little lives are, and they all think they have 175 friends who love them and hang on their every word.

If you want to read more about just how pathetically sad the average Brit is, simply clickie here.
