I've never had a Facebook account, and never will.

I have never had ANY social media account and never will.

I can't stand seeing everyone on the road around me looking down at their phones instead of watching where the **** they're going! They're so addicted to texting on Facebook and Twitter that they're truly powerless to tear their attention away from their phone to see what's ahead of them on the road. During a 5-month span of time in 2015-2016 I had both family cars get totaled by being hit from behind by some social media addict who had their head buried in their phone instead of paying attention to the fact that traffic had come to a complete stop ahead of them!

Texas (and my hometown Arlington) has laws against texting while driving, but I've never seen them enforced, so no one pays the laws any regard.

I commute on my bike. At any given stop light, it's a certainty that several of the cars surrounding me will have the drivers with their faces buried in their phones. It makes me want to jump off the bike and reach into those cars and grab the phone away from the driver and throw it as far as I can, and then yell at the driver, "Put down the **** phone and drive!".

Addiction to social media is a mental illness, and has become an epidemic. Statistically (and tragically), it's going to get some of us (bikers) killed on the road. So please count me out of your Facebook fan club.

Sorry for the rant.

Oh, forgot to mention -- I also have four ruptured disks in my back from one of those occasions of getting rear-ended by someone texting. Everything I do anymore hurts -- standing, walking, laying down, sitting in a chair. My quality of life is permanently changed for the worse by someone who was so addicted to social media they couldn't even bring theirself to watch where they were going.

I was on facebook many years ago and I'm very happy to be off it. Pretty sure some people think I'm dead because I'm not on social media. I'm OK with that.

Instead of joing facebook..photocopy your passport, drivers liscense, credit card number,social security card and bank info. Then, post it online followed by a spam email to everyone just to make sure its out there......youll have that half of the facebook experience covered
