That's... deep. And Sad. like depressing. Aw. fuck. I was having a good day.
HAHA, it's mine now!
I already nominated it, I am hoping others do the same.
It is not mine anymore, Ant gave it back to PocketPie.
Yes, but if you have kids then at least some part of you will continue living.
Make that an amirite post or I am going to steal that.
fine, if you don't make it, I will.
worst case scenario, it gets taken down.
Maybe this is the true purpose of Facebook. Because your page will still be up even after you die. Or will someone delete it? Or will it just be some kind of online history book? (shrug)
According to the changes implemented from the Canadian report, pages become memorialized and become read-only. It prevents people from logging in as a dead person and wrecking havoc.
What, so they take them down? My friend died in February, but I don't want to see her page go.
they get memorialized. It becomes read-only.
Who knew the secret to attaining immortality would be as simple as having a really common name?
Name your kid Muhhamad. They'll never die.
I was just checking to see if you were still alive.
i think they mean saying your name while referring to you.
Oh god, right in the feels.
It's sad to think that'll there will be a last of everything when you die. Like your last genuine smile, last hug, etc.
feel is Arabic for elephant.
Oh god, right in the elephants.
Please don't sully this post with your dirty talk.
Elephants aren't all that dirty. They're pretty much a walking car-wash with those huge trunks
I have huge trunks. I'd have them fitted, but they are dirty, so I don't see the point. I'm gonna die of having dirty, oversized trunks...
Nothing wrong with having some junk in your trunk.
Are you suggesting that I procure implants for my tush?
Well at first, we were talking about elephant trunks, but then I assumed you were now discussing about actual trunks- like pants, for example. So wanting to help your self-esteem with your dirty trunks, I said that without meaning to imply your actual buttox.
So you didn't want to imply buttox. You just wanted to imply BOTOX because I look too old, and you think I should tighten my face up.
Here is my response to that:
Tempted to steal this and make it into a post as well.
Good posts are quoted, great posts are stolen.
I was going to do it, but then it reminded me of how babies have the most genuine laughs- so I did a post about that instead.
Girl you cray imma follow u.
I disagree. People can remember you and think about you without saying your name. Sometimes, you encounter people who will remember you and think about you and they don't even know your name. For example, there are quotes attributed to "anonymous" and these people's words will live on and on even though we don't know their names.
Not to mention, the actions you make have a lasting effect on the world. Whenever you interact with someone, you affect their thoughts and emotions. This then affects their interactions, which affects other peoples' thoughts and emotions. which affects their interactions, etc. It's a ripple effect. A similar chain reaction happens when you interact with objects.
There's a lot of people who have actually been pretty influential in my life, but I only knew them for a few minutes. I don't even remember what they look like, but their words and actions in those few minutes live on.
You know lots of people were saying they were depressed by this. I find it comforting, personally. By this thought, we haven't yet lost our most brilliant thinkers and scientists; The names Newton, Socrates, Plato, Albert Einstein, Tesla, are all still spoken of, and so still live on.
I read your comment and felt all warm and fuzzy inside. Then I remembered that I have a big project on a bunch of scientists due tomorrow. Shit. I need to go work on that...
John Smith will live forever.
My heart sank a little thinking about that...
can someone please help me find where I saw this before, I want to give credit where credit is due.
I'm pretty sure I've seen it credited to Banksy before
Uh... what? First off you were just asking where you had seen it before. Secondly, no you didn't come up with it, I've seen it floating around the net for years.
Some people found this comforting, some found it depressing, I don't understand... I found it awesome and it just makes life that much more awesome. Especially if your name gets remembered.
So the last person who said their name is a murderer?
You make it sound like the hospital I was born in isn't the most historical place many people will ever go to
Nice work man. Suggested for POTD.
It worked, thanks.
As much as I do love this, I read the exact same thing (in the same words) in a Johnlock fanfic about a month ago.
Also, there's a differently worded variation in an old African parable.
tell me more anonymous
I couldn't find the source, I just posted it as I remembered it.
