SOCIAL MEDIA CAN KILL YOU!

SOCIAL MEDIA CAN KILL MORE THAN YOUR RELATIONSHIP!

THE AVERAGE AMERICAN WILL SPEND 57% of THEIR WAKING HOURS

 CONSUMING INTERNET AND TELEVISION

IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 25 YOU SPEND 31 HOURS A WEEK ON THE INTERNET

IF YOU ARE AN AMERICAN YOU ALSO SPEND 33 HOURS A WEEK WATCHING TELEVISION

That means in one year you LOSE 139 DAYS of Your LIFE in front of your computer and television.

In politics they say,” If you want a friend in this world, get a dog.” (Harry Truman) Frankly, if you are sitting in front of the television and computer for more than half your day you don’t even have time for the dog; unless you want it to crap in the house.

FUN FACT  #1

LEARN THE REAL SECRET BEHIND HUMAN EVOLUTION

IN CHAPTER 10 of FACEBOOK ATE MY MARRIAGE

HINT:  Dog Crap and Boredom

 If you can get even HALF those days back you are doubling the amount of time you are spending with, meeting and becoming involved with people OFF LINE.   Imagine it!  Leisurely lunches, walks on the beach, visiting theme parks, shooting pool, jet skiing, snowmobiling, racquet ball, skydiving, bungee jumping….

….And that is just what you will do with your New Friends!

Imagine the things you will do with someone you are in a deep and meaningful relationship with. (Look I know you have been on-line – A LOT – so you don’t have to imagine all of it.  But imagine it being even better than that.)

Are you starting to get it?

                A huge friends list won’t curl your toes at three in the morning .

                Posts and “likes” don’t buy the beer while everyone is out bowling or shooting pool.

                And you will NEVER have to worry about who is poking the person your care about on-line if both of you are living your lives, happily, together, offline.

If you don’t get “IT” yet, if you don’t understand NOTHING MEANINGFUL HAPPENS UNTIL IT HAPPENS OFF-LINE….

….then you will struggle, fail, suffer and become a member of the motionless masses who click their way through what they call a life until you keel over, dead and alone in front of your computer or tablet.   Then it will be the smell or the unpaid bills that causes someone to come around and find you….

…..several weeks later.

Is that what you really want?

INSANE FACT Number 2

LACK OF DAILY ACTIVITY IS A MAJOR FACTOR IN DEVELOPING TYPE 2 DIABETES

Do you think maybe 139 days of sitting on your butt might be a “lack of daily activity?”   Yes, I am really talking about you dying from this Social Media/internet life you are living.   When people lose fingers and toes to diabetes, when they turn red and then blue from a massive heart attack at age 27 it isn’t pretty.    Is this what you really want?

But, let’s pretend….just pretend for a minute that you run on a tread mill the ENTIRE time you are online and/or watching television.  Let’s also pretend you eat an ideal, calorically balanced, organic diet and somehow you have developed a MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIP on Social Media that is fulfilling.   Heck, let’s even imagine you are doing all this with six pack abs and a body that anyone else would need Adobe Photoshop to achieve.   The fact of the matter is you are on SOCIAL MEDIA and if you haven’t read the headlines let me bring you up to speed.

FACEBOOK IS INVOLVED IN 90% OF ALL DIVORCES *

In other words, if EITHER of you are on social media your relationship is at risk!

So, have you found your “Honey” on EHarmony?  Delete your facebook account immediately, log out, log off, get hitched (if that is what you want to do) and get on with your life!

Start having friends over for dinner.

Get involved in local groups, charities or organizations that share your values.

Participate in local sporting activities.

Feel strongly about politics?  GET OFF THE COMPUTER AND GO DO SOMETHING FOR WHAT YOU SUPPORT!  Who knows, you might even make friends while you are doing it.

Heck, go and develop some offensive hobbies!

Just another “Insane Fact” From Hell Bent Press & Cusper Lynn copyright 2011

share, link, cite, laugh….then repeat

FACEBOOK ATE MY MARRIAGE  is a work of fiction.  The Headlines, statistics, and purported “Facts” listed above are suspect as they are all derived from the internet and questionable sources such as National Television News Agencies, the CDC, Divorce Lawyers’ association news releases, Google News archives and the usual suspects that shape public opinion.   The “fun facts” from Novel itself are equally suspect as it is a comedy about divorce in the age of Social Media.   Author Cusper Lynn sincerely doubts anyone will ever actually leave facebook and the internet… and get a real life.   But if you manage to, he invites you to email him at facebook and tell him about your discovery of life in the outside world.   He is not a well man, we are told he went through a very nasty divorce and has developed some interesting  and oddish habits; like writing bizarre long form direct ad copy.   But after all we are publishers, not therapists and are only interested in selling you quality books  “One Soul At a Time”.   Copyright 2011 Hell Bent Press.
P.S.  You can find the one true religion on page 114…at the bottom.   Just in case you were confused.
