As excited as I am about this platform being opened up to more users (I am getting tired of seeing nothing but CmdrTaco and Lady Ada updates), Google is still lacking the one thing that would help it dominate in the social networking market:scantily clad 16 year old girls. Say what you want about how annoying 16 year old girls are on the internet (OMGPWNIES layouts and such), but they really are the catalyst to social networks taking off. Once high school girls start to establish a presence on a website, other high school girls want to join to keep up with their friends, and every male on the internet wants to join so he can creep on those girls' profiles and fap to their bikini pictures. That may sound offensive to some, but it is the one truth of social networking. Until Google has a large userbase of skanky girls to lurk on, it will not take off as the dominant social platform.

I'm sick of us jumping in every time a species is about to die out. Too cute to fail? I say let them go extinct. The ones that survive who looked to the future instead of eating all the grass in the field this quarter are doing what's morally right, and will lead to a stronger society.
Before you know it, the lazy lower-class animals will be living in human-provided housing, with food handouts and arranged marriages, and the predation the superior specimens take part in will be outsourced to the hunters!
A lot of people forget that before Al Gore became the poster boy for global warming, he was one of the most conservative Democrats. His wife tried to ban heavy metal albums for example. It makes me think about how much this country has changed in the past thirty years. The political climate has moved so far to the right that it’s sometimes difficult to appreciate the shift.
I’ve always thought of myself as a moderate, but I think that the world is turning me into a liberal.
