Are Facebook’s Privacy Settings A Joke?

Let me start by saying that if you are going to stay safe online, never enter or post any data in social media that you would not want discussed on national news.

Recently Facebook changed their privacy settings making it harder to limit your posts to specific people.  That got a lot of people angry but the reality is that any company can change their rules at any time and your only recourse of action is to stop using it.  When you consider the size and scope of Facebook it is easy to see how most will simply shrug their shoulders and move on – social media is addictive and most are not going to stop posting regardless of the privacy rules.

Here are some gems from the late, great Mitch Hedberg

  • I called the hotel operator and she said, “How can I direct your call?” I said, “Well, you could say ‘Action!’, and I’ll begin to dial. And when I say ‘Goodbye’, then you can yell ‘Cut!’”
  • I like cottage cheese. That’s why I want to try other dwelling cheeses, too. How about studio apartment cheese? Tent cheese? Mobile home cheese? Do not eat mobile home cheese in a tornado.
  • I went to a restaurant, and I saw a guy wearing a leather jacket, eating a hamburger, drinking a glass of milk. I said, “Dude, you are a cow. The metamorphosis is complete. Don’t fall asleep or I will tip you over!”

Every winner has scars

Life is made up of a series of experiences. Each one will make you stronger, even though it may be hard for you to realize it at the time.

Life is your classroom in which you’re being tested, tried, and passed.

Always try to stay in the midst of life and activity.

Don’t isolate yourself from the action.

Leadership is action not position

All successful people became successful, because they gave some talent or ability in the service of others.

You can contribute in some way to others, no matter how small your talent.

Monty Python Poems

Horace Poem By Monty Python

Much to his Mum and Dad’s dismay
Horace ate himself one day.
He didn’t stop to say his grace,
He just sat down and ate his face.
“We can’t have this his Dad declared,
“If that lad’s ate, he should be shared.”

Belief makes everything possible

In order to succeed, you must first believe that you can.

The only true limit to your realization of tomorrow will be your doubts of today.

When you stop dreaming you stop living

If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and yourself.

Hold the image of yourself as you long to be, the image of what you long to obtain, the image of health, efficiency and success.

The Glass Is Always Half Full

There is a good side to every situation.

View your problems as opportunities.

You cannot have the success without the failures.
