Well, it would appear that I’m getting into precisely the right frame of mind to go live on national radio in an hour and a half.

… and that said “reporter” is too fucking stupid to understand that everyone’s view of the world on “social media” is unique. Fucktards.

via Janetter for Mac

I have come to believe that such stories reflect nothing more than the tiny, personal filter bubble of the alleged “reporter”…

I love how daily news outlets report “social media trends” that I, a person more than averagely active on social media, HAVE NEVER SEEN.

It’s true, @GreenJ, and I am even looking at legal arguments as we speak. This is my life. Also, drinking Peroni. It’s hot in Canberra.
