Facebook Fibs

by duncanr

Facebook is a great tool to enable family and friends separated by distance and years to maintain ties

However, there is a downside as the wish to appear ‘cool’ and be ‘one of the crowd’ can lead to exaggeration/lies as folk compete with one another to show what interesting/exciting lives they lead

Wee fat juicy ones, big long skinny ones,
See how they wriggle and squirm.

they say money can’t buy happiness but for one lonely boy, it bought him a whole lot of new chums on facebook (

Friends of Mike Patterson

by duncanr

mike-patterson-mum-vickie-1-522x293Mike Patterson dived into a creek to save a stranger’s 4yr old child from drowning. Sadly, the water was shallow and as a result he broke his neck in three places and severed his spine. He is now in intensive care and doctors have confirmed he is paralysed from the waist down. Mr Patterson has no health insurance. A Facebook page – Friends of Mike Patterson’ – has been set up for those who wish to make a contribution to help his family meet the cost of his care

Full story here –

[Hhmm, is anyone, like me, wondering why – if the water was shallow – the child’s mother didn’t just wade into the creek and grab her kid ?]

Facebook Appeal Frees Dog from Pound

by duncanr

dog_5This is the sight that tugged at a good Samaritan’s heart – a man, Dave Thomas, – sat holding his dog’s paw through a gap at the bottom of a cage, saying a last goodbye before the dog is put to sleep.

The dog, “Buzz Lightyear“, was taken into the Pound when Thomas was jailed for a few days for a traffic violation. Now that he was out, though, he didn’t have the $400 needed to free his dog from the Pound and Buzz was scheduled to be euthanised

Touched by the sight of Thomas and Buzz together, Maria Sanchez posted the pic to Facebook and . . .

catherineThe Norwegian teen has long fancied his friend Catherine (that’s her on the right) but been too chicken to do anything about it.

We Are All Daniel Cui

by duncanr

This vid is starting to trend on the internet

And it’s easy to understand why – a rubbish goalkeeper. Some photos posted on Facebook making fun of him. Friends rally round. Goalkeeper gets new found confidence, pulls off wonderful last-minute save to give his team their first victory. A heart-warming tale of a loser being bullied, friends rallying round in support, and loser turns into hero. Could almost be a comic book story.
