what the %^*()#@! are they doing
whos running the show for them
some guy with aspergers syndrome that has no social skills
oh yea
thats it

anyone who understands american minds knows that you cant
make changes like this on us
just ask netflix

i have two facebook accounts
one for me personally and one for this blog (the one you
can click on to the right) and they now look different
ones got the new ^&%* and the other one has the old stuff
you know which one i know how to use dont you

maybe mark should have eased a small piece into the system
a little at a time so we all would not have such facebook shock
i feel like i did when i was first given a smartphone to use
its like youre on your own to figure it out yourself
are we all just mice trying to work our way through the facebook

yesterday i got stuck on my profile page and couldnt get off
wonder what will happen to me today
maybe mark needs someone to help him understand the rest
of us

ok google + let me in
their loss(es) will be your gain(s)

back in august i had to undergo an 8 hour neuropsychological
exam by a neuropsychologist to satisfy the disability insurance
it was not good enough that i had records of all this from a
well-established medical institution who is involved in the research
on alzheimers disease
think now they wished they hadnt done it
although it was a lengthy tiring exam i gave it my best effort and
felt like since i knew i had a problem that it would show up on
the exam
well it did
included in the exam are ways to tell if your are faking it or if your
are just crazy or if you are not giving a good effort
i passed all of those

the end result were that the abnormalities that ive noticed
personally and those that have been seen on all of the other
five neuropsych exams are all consistently present
(including the brief mental status exam that was done for
the video taping my wife she and i did this week)

the end result was that the np exam i had done showed the
persistent deficits and that the insurance finally agreed that
i had a problem and
will now give me my disability checks until i reach the age of 66
unless it all goes away
wish it would but i doubt it

the policy as written requires that i be able to do the same
medical practice as i was doing which i can not
heck i am giving up my medical license, cant get malpractice
insurance, life insurance, disability insurance, health insurance,
or long term insurance
luckily i had these all in place before all this happened

  1. I tend to agree but I kind of like the fact that Facebook is attempting to improve itself...


    ... I think this extends to a more "CNBC" look where you are met with a more active screen.

    I like it... but I like blinky lights.

    I also have a strong gut feeling this is why the iPad facebook app hasn't shown it's face, yet... no pun intended.

  2. Have you tried Google+?

    I have and it is quite different than facebook.

    Some things are better and some not. Facebook is much better for news and commercial items, since they have not allowed those kind of accounts yet.

    The one thing I have found on Google+ is an outstanding photography community. It is very active with some real good photos.

    Give it a try and see what you think.
