This LIFE is semi-retired.

Hi! I'm updating this space to tell you guys that this second, seemingly, kinda, sort of unsuccessful attempt at deeply documenting my thoughts I call a blog will now be semi-retired. Facebook status updates and tweeting are a lot easier these days to blab about things like my views on life, society, and current events. Blogging, however, takes a little bit of thought. Heck, even THIS pinned post takes a while to be typed too.

The NARNIA division, however, I shall try and actively live it up; where I'll say good or crappy things about films, TV series, music, video games, events, or literature I have read... if this lazy-leech thing ever comes off of my brain, that is. 'Till then.

Another stupid yet addicting invention. You see interesting stuff/statuses on Facebook or anywhere else that implements the above button. And then kinda lost for words to describe how much you love it, so you click this button. However, this is also an invention that encourages people to like stuff they weren't suppose to like.

For example:

"My mom is dead. Please, say your prayers to her."

When you see that status, I'm damn sure that you would wanna say...

"Damn. I feel for you, man."

But sometimes... you just don't feel like saying it, so you wanna give a quick feedback instead. Thing is, there is no other options than the 'Like' button. I've seen quite a handful of the above situation I just said occurred in real life. It's actually a tragic story and yet lots of people 'liked' the status posted. It gives an impression that you actually 'like' to see/know that the person dies. Seriously... not everything in this world is likeable. Death is one of the things we fear of so badly. Why would we 'like' it?

Hear me out, Zuckerberg. Consider putting 'Dislike' and '50-50' buttons in the near future if you wanna keep yourself and Facebook breathing.
