Save the Babies
I keep seeing these ridiculous photos on my Facebook news feed of some child on a hospital bed with a crazy looking physical defect.
The premise for it is that if you like, share or comment on the photo, Facebook will send $1 towards treatment for the infant.
Anyone who believes that kind of shit is not very bright. Some of these things have one millions likes. Do they think that Facebook is donating one million dollars to help one child?
People don’t have any common sense anymore. They dive straight into things without thinking it through.
I think that they just like these photos straight away whilst thinking about how awful it is that this child is in so much pain because there is no way that they could click the button while imagining Mark Zuckerberg adding a dollar to the ‘Baby Fund’.
I suppose that’s sweet of them but they’d want to smarten themselves up before they get fooled like that in real life.
The people who came up with the whole idea are the ones who I can’t understand.
What is the point of it all?
Is it knowing that they are making a fool of loads of people?
Or is it for the attention?
I don’t get what satisfaction they could get by telling someone ’10,000 people liked my dying baby post yesterday’. Are people that desperate for attention that they become absolute scumbags to get it? I suppose it’s the way things are these days.
I think a lot of the people that got famous through things like Big Brother and other reality shows are acting different just so people remember them.
They probably don’t mind walking down the street knowing that people are looking at them, thinking they are unintelligent.
In fact, it’s probably exactly what they want to happen.
This whole need to be noticed and to make a name for yourself is getting out of hand.
It’s a pity that earning fame isn’t the drug that people crave instead.
At least that way, some attention hungry asshole could be slaving away in a laboratory working on the cure for cancer so they could get a big pat on the back from the entire population of the planet.
Sadly it’s easier to get your picture in Heat magazine by wanking off a pig on live television.
