A friend of mine sent me a link to http://www.lamebook.com – a website that is something akin to watching a train wreck. You want to turn away from all the horrific stupidity, but it’s just too fascinating. I mean, who on earth would tell a former partner they had herpes over facebook?

This page is a showcase of moronic things that people have posted on the social networking site, such as pictures of blood-stained sheets, break-up messages and admissions of hit-and-run driving offences. One girl, and I kid you not, even posted a photo of a positive pregnancy test with the caption, ‘How am I going to tell the father?’*

I can’t even begin to imagine what goes through someone’s mind when they sit down at their keyboard, log on to facebook and begin to type “Do they speak English in London?”, “I didn’t know I was eating actual lamb when I ate lamb chops” or “Soon to be divorced”.

I just… well… I don’t have words.

I want four hours of my life back.
