first, you need context:
during the time when the idea of a forum seemed to fade away and i drank the facebook koolaid, i was getting close to leaving i remember. i was getting particularily sick of the narcissim, the empty likes and the even more superficial conversation. so i decided to change up my tendencies and engage and post with a purpose, something meaningful. so i would read up on local and state news and target my posts. at that particular time, there was a bit of a crisis emerging in regards to the truth about the water shutoffs in Detriot. Now Detriot is not far (1.5 hrs.) from my own community, so you can understand how one could use this as an opportunity to become active and at least try to get people to care, or at the very least, a dialog. now mind you, this was right during the hieght of the ice bucket challenge.. (rollseyes) and i thought why not put together a satire comic to shine a light on this problem while everyone is out dumping water on themselves for a cause. genius, right?! wrong! i got a few likes, i think, maybe a comment, i bumped it once, and then it was buried and forgotten.. it was a wrap. i mean, i understand how fb is a tool, but tool was not designed to elevate any pursuit other than vain pursuits in my eyes. it is just a trap, to introduce for complacent and naive people to kind of fall into, where the soul eventually dies from nothingness. but yea, that might be a little harsh. i just feel like its just one of many black holes on the internet. it is leterally a vacuum..
anyway, here's the comic.
*off topic, btw you can still donate if anyne feels so inclined.
This... This is brilliant. Clearly it will probably be lost on the ninja video Facebook as well, but at least we have 13 thousand members. It's shit like this that reminds me exactly why you are so fucking important to the world
