Internet Freaks

WOOT! So Im finally back from Jamaica....Well I was back about 2 weeks ago but yeah.....Yeah! I was on this multiplayer roleplaying game called Runescape (yeah, Im a nerd. I role play. So what?) and I was wondering why the internet plays such a big part in society today. Besides the obvious reason about how anything can be found via web -from buying a rare Malibu Barbie from making Weapons of Mass Destruction-but the thing is that alot of people arent always happy with the life they're living at the appointed time OR even if they're greatly content with their life they might want to make it a bit can be anyone over the internet. You could be a 45 year old male pretending to be a 14 year old girl with acne and an eating disorder. I dont know why that would be sometihng to choose to be but hey, one girls nightmare is another man's fantasy. play my own little 'W.B. Manson' game with this new thought I created a couple of different Myspaces as different people which was actually real fun. My different account themes were -Goth Chick, Envolved in Emo, Homesexual Ganster, Retired Cop,Believed Vampire and an Anti-Christ theme.- All were very hard work and it was so interesting to see how people responed differently to each one. I had people request me, just so they could curse me out and tell me "you need to be saved..." and "prayer couldn't even help a wretched person like yourself'" A couple of those messages hurt my feelings too...but anway, my point really is that people can be anyone they want over the internet so as my personal P.S.A. you don't know who is who so DO NOT give your personal information to anyone, agree to meet anybody from the internet outside or trust any person you meet online. Take nothing what anyone says personally either because I know many of you remember the story of the mother who went on Myspace and pretended to be a young boy and led a girl to suicide...(click here to read the article)

BE CAREFUL!!!!! please.....

Oh and Runescape is really fun. Check it out. (Nerds are really cool people...just kidding, Dont call anyone names or make fun of people...its not nice....^_^ im so sweet....)

Sabrina, I always find your blog so interesting! I love the way your mind works. Great experiment and interesting commentary about role play on the internet. Also, thanks for turning me on to Kevin Rudoff.
