It's just a fad, like facebook and the rest.
I don't even bother with it.
I'm on P.O.T.N. for hours each day anyway, if I spend some time on those sites, I'll never get any work done .

Yes....what is it that the mindless heard? Inquiring (or Enquiring for you tabloid fans) minds want to know.

myspace, facebook, twitter, linkedin ad nauseum are just the latest fad for people with too much time on their hands.

POTN absorbs all my free time and most of my work day, I haven't got any left over to post updates about what song I'm listening to "right now"... :lol:

Maybe....but what if whatever it was that the mindless HEARD (herd) SAW made them feel RAW?

[This could actually turn into an interesting thread....]

Sawing mindlessly is very dangerous...

Vincent Van Goh sawed mindlessly in an effort to give a girl a tweet and he ended up unable to heard anything!

Don't get yer hat....it's just turning good!

....'cos if I give a girl a TWEET (treat), surly I could expect to take a shot or two as a TWEET of my own, until the Missus HERD (heard) about it, and then I'd be SAW (sore) for sure!

I think I SAW what you meant, but I'm surrounded by photogenic lovelies in Japan, so SEA-KING out AMUSE with what I'm after is TWO easy by far.....if only the Missus wouldn't see RED, HERRING those words, "please take me" wouldn't be SEW dangerous!
