Facebook provides a wealth of can’t-live-without knowledge.
I mean, what would we do without knowing what became of the child stars of the 80s, how proficient we are at recalling Seinfeld episodes, or seeing what we would look like as the opposite sex? SPOILER ALERT: Most 80s child stars became fat drug addicts, I score a 100% on every Facebook Seinfeld quiz and I’d be a really, really hot guy.
Because, like horoscopes, Facebook apps predict with pinpoint accuracy, I play along. I don’t know how they do it, but Facebook apps just know us so well – perhaps even better than we know ourselves.
It is for this reason that I was overjoyed when a Facebook app recently described me as “a lioness who never gives up, even if it is sometimes difficult.”
Until I saw this, I was convinced that it was stoicism preventing me from throwing in the towel.
Now I realize that while stoicism may provide the perseverance, it’s my children that give me the motivation.
Sometimes all it takes is a silly Facebook app to be reminded of why some fights need to go the distance.
