Yeah twitter is nice and fun. I like using it, though I sometimes get a little lost/sidetracked and loose/miss posts. It is also nice to have followers.

Best Chat Thread name ever! :D

As for social media... I tried Facebook. Found it to be a waste of time.
I may, however, one day try twitter.

So, HP!F, what was your best post of 2014?

Personally I think mine was this old gem.

...wow, it's hard to believe that Chat Thread 41 lasted more than an entire year. That's incredible.

In terms of social media, I actually have a Tumblr.

It was a terrible decision to get that. If you're lucky enough to not have been there, do yourself a favor and don't go. Ever. You will become an apathetic husk of a person that fears saying anything about anything because your personal information might find its way to some seriously messed up people if you do.

I have a mouth but I cannot scream, for if I scream those I scream in fear of will find me.

Tumblr isn't so bad - as long as you get on with the right people :P Most of my internet friends come from Tumblr!

That might simply be because I joined with a roleplaying blog

I've been avoiding getting a Facebook or Twitter account like the plague ever since I first heard of them both.

I tried out similar profile sites in the past...(one of them being Bebo, I forget the names of the others)...and I just didn't really do anything with them, so I kinda figure profile sites aren't really for me.

Also Facebook had that bad reputation right from day 1 of people committing suicide coz of bad stuff other users have commented. That kinda put me off in the early days.

I do have a Tumblr account of sorts...it's more for a character of mine at the moment. I will be creating one more for myself in future.

Tumblr doesn't seem to be as much a profile site as the others...it's more a "post whatever" kinda thing. I don't recall having to enter any really personal info that hackers could get at.

Hahahahah that quote instills fear in me. But yeah, I'm gonna say it, when it comes to ruining the lives of others, Tumblr is by far worse than any other website.

I had a Tumblr. I tried it once then I said never again. Of course, one of my favorite comic authors moved to it so I have no choice.

I used to follow a lot of Housepetters on Tumblr. All the fan posting... it got overwhelming. Way too much to read.

I got my Facebook in 2010. I used it for the Facebook games like Farmville and Cityville only. It was my dad's Facebook. At some point I started to make posts, and changed it to my Facebook. So technically, I don't have a Facebook, I use my dad's. :lol:

Now I only use it for looking at Housepets and posting random pictures of me (most of which are on the thread for posting pictures of yourself). I hardly ever log on. I do remember setting my birthday to April 1st one year for April Fool's Day. I got so many random Happy Birthdays that day. Then I changed it for the last time it would allow me to.

I think Tumblr is the same case with Twitter, now that I think of it, I think I made one in 2012. I never use Tumblr anymore though.

I have no idea what my best post of 2014 would be. Even if I came in the last 4 months of 2014, I still have over 400 posts to look through. I will eventually find it.

On another subject, I don't get fire drills at my school. We get our stuff before the last class on a half day, go to class, and at the end of the day the fire alarm goes off and we get out of school and go home. This does teach us how to get out of the building, but we were never told what to do or where to go if there was an actual fire. I suppose the teachers have a plan though.

I have both facebook and twitter. My twitter is @FurrhanB if you wanna follow me. I'm more of a watcher than a poster but I do post things occasionally. I won't give out my facebook here though just because that's under my real name.

In my old high school there was one wing that didn't have any fire alarms and the alarms from the main part of the school also weren't audible in that wing so the teachers actually had to either jump on the PA or go doorknocking to get everyone to evacuate.

Ha, sounds exactly like the art, music, and band rooms in my old school. We would be sitting there, and a teacher would come down and say the fire alarm was going off. It was even worse because there was no PA system int hose rooms, just a phone. It was the basement of the school, don't think anyone intended it to be a class room, as the art room used to be up where the middle school is now.

My middle school used to do fire drill dismissals. It was a unique experience.

As for my high school, 3 years before I entered it (sixth grade which half of the schools counted as elementary and the other half counted as middle school; my elementary school counted it as elementary school), one of the buildings didn't have their alarm system hooked up. There were three buildings, the main building (which had a north building and a south building with the south building being newer), an aquaculture building (which was converted into two classrooms) and the modular building. The modular building didn't have their alarm system hooked up until I was there. They had to announce there was a drill over the PA system and if the alarm was triggered some other way, one of the secretaries would have to go running to the building to tell them to evacuate.

Also, I'm a big fire alarm enthusiast. I can name most fire alarms, I like watching videos of fire drills on YouTube and I was on a forum where people collected them (I don't though). It was actually pretty interesting knowing how many different fire alarms there are. xD

Though I doubt no one will care, here is what we had in high school:

I went to Pokemon Symphonic Evolutions today, it was great. Far better than the Zelda one. I also got over 100 street passes. :D

The fire alarm at my old school is probably about 50 years old. It is a solid siren that doesn't go off until the drill is over. The pull stations are ones where you break glass to trigger the alarm. Those fire drills were always fun.

In my basement there is an old pull station and one of those boxed that went on a phone pole to signal for a fire. Those are nice, I like them.

Also, this fire alarm is cool.

No, the ones in my school had a cone horn coming out of a box, and the pull stations didn't have a hammer, they had a metal plate that said pull back and break glass to trigger alarm. The metal plate was covering the glass, so you couldn't really see what was under it.

Also, this would make a great holiday 2011 card. :lol:

Taking away a squirrel's acorns just makes it angry and then it attacks you - what makes that a win=win situation? :|
