    I agree completely. I'm terrified to imagine how youth will be in 50 years...

    Do you think they're lost and confused and looking for friends? Wanting to stand out from the crowd, but really in fact, blending in?

    Yes
    *cough* Emo freaks!

    I think its sad, i have few people on my friends list that are like that, im always half tempted to send them a message telling them to get over themselves. But i never do.

    The more i go on myspce the more i hate it. My girlfriend is into doing these bulliten quizes...meh! What a waste of time, as if any one cares what color pajamas your wearing or what the last sms said on your phone!
    There is no sig... Less there be no life...

    Great Post Marisa

    If these people remain on this same track...How do you imagine their marriage/family will be in the future? How do you think these people will end up?
    For those of us who are a little older maybe (I'm a 35yr old man) and look on this from an outside view i.e. I'm not still at home / school / college / university... I firstly want to applaud Marisa for starting this thread, it's good to see all aspects of life open to discussion on a video game forum. Spot on.

    My take on this has been unchanged from when I was at school to now and it centers around the media - we have always had idealistic models, actors, tv presenters, pop stars, media personalities which have been hand picked to represent the more generally aesthetic appealing attributes of the human form - there is a reason why they call them models and this is where the problem starts - because "sex sells" and sells big, media corps want to push it down the throats of all who are not so "beautiful" into thinking that we all can become famous, rich, popular etc... if only we had: long legs, full lips, a six pack, big tits, flat stomach, blonde hair, blue eyes: hell even Hitler realised this....let's not get into that tho.

    People of all ages are suckered into thinking that they can become popular if they buy this and buy that product which will transform us overnight - and it gets them hooked into the media centric trap of wanting to be like....Clooney, Pitt, Aniston etc etc and plays on this.
    Now taking that notion and looking on MySpace at all these wannabees clamouring for attention: because that's all they really want isn't it: you realise that the people they are trying to impress are not looking for them per se but an image - it's everymans' reality tv. They will have their "woo you go girl / boy you look hot..." blah, then realise that it's not really that exciting when people stop looking at your site because there really isn't any content to go with the cleavage and six-packs and they will wander off and blend into the scenery once they leave their little pack of admirers and join bigger pools like uni and work etc... Their star will fade, which is nothing out of the ordinary - the main fear for the ones that are really obsessed will be that cosmetic surgery route and we all know where that will end... check out the mass of overdone "celebrity" surgeries

    The realistic outcome of how the majority of these vane people will end up is just like all the rest of us, regardless of height, weight, looks etc. etc.. it's one of house, car, 2.4kids(maybe) and a work-a-day job, if being beautiful ever brought true lasting happiness take a look back into history and see how many falls from grace there have been once the tits sag or the hairline receeds.....

    It'sthe content that we really want to buy, the packaging just draws our attention to it - imagine getting up on xmas morning to a present wrapped in glamourous paper and when you opened it all that was inside was a leadless pencil....

    Wow! That was beautifully writen! I especially love the Christmas gift example, fits perfectly! There's nothing more I can add because you've pretty much said it all. Basically, all I can say is that I pray one day these people wake up and realize that there is more to life than outside appearance and that all those chemicals they add to their bodies will - in the end - make them uglier.

    me personally i cant stand the a-typical im thin and pretty and half naked girls on myspace with 10000 friends who TyPe LyKe DiSsS and want nothing but guys to drool over them. it makes me naucious and if i have a kid that does it i swear to god i will lock them in the basement forever!!!! its stupid, its idiotic and a waste of time. in the time it takes these girls to post a pic where the caption says "DoNTchA TiNk I LoOoOoK PhAt?" and they could use another 10000LBS put on them and get the guys that say "yo shawty you look MAD HOT!" they could of been doing their homework!!!!!!!! it boggles my mind

    my page is private. those that know me or i extend an invitation to may see my page. i have 2 "provocative" pics on there one in my NYPD uniform and another lifting my shirt. reason they are up there is because i KNOW the crowed that is viewing them. i know these people personally and i am not asshamed. however if it were openly put out in public someones head would deff be rolling!

    myspace=devil plain and simple!

    Well, I don't care for that My Space scum. Sure, I have an account but I'd probably gas them all if I had a chance. I guess the world needs people like that as a counter-balance to those who actually contribute and make humans worthy of their continuing existence. As I've gotten older I've gotten even more distant from people and especially people like that.
    The Nazi's used Jews as an excuse to why their people were suffering and it was unfair and unjust. These people on the other hand perhaps deserve something awful to happen to them so maybe then they can realize what worthless pieces of human waste they are.

    On the other hand, it is a nice ego boost knowing that I am breathing the same air they are. Happy in my stride knowing how I am superior.

    Be touched by his noodly appendage
