Facebook Is Serious Stuff

From Drudge today,

Husband Hacked Wife to Death with Meat Cleaver After She Changed Facebook Status to Single

A husband who hacked his wife to death with a meat cleaver in fury over her Facebook entry was jailed for a minimum of 14 years at the Old Bailey today.

Wayne Forrester, 34, drank alcohol and took cocaine before driving 15 miles to the family home to attack wife Emma as she lay in bed.

The couple had separated four days before the murder in February and Forrester later told police he had been provoked by his wife changing her marital status to "single" on her Facebook entry, the court heard.

Only 14 years of time? What, is there leniency for *Facebook Rage*?

I could imagine lots of violence stemming from Facebook *communication*. Every week I see Mrs. C-Nut get more and more immersed in this virtual reality.

I could very easily imagine West Coast Tom getting dumped (or cleavered) by his girlfriend if, say, he decided to remove his *single* status.

And then you have my brother, who is single, but uses a pic of him and some random chick on his profile. What's that all about?

Here is a very informative funny article on Facebook - The Ladettes Who Glofiy Their Shameful Drunken Antics On Facebook. The second picture in the article had me in stitches!
