How come when you make friends with people on the internet that’s weird, but if you make friends with people IRL (ha), and then only communicate on the internet, it’s okay? I am not disagreeing with this idea, just wondering why everyone, even people who are power internet users, seem to still feel the same way. The corrolary is that everyone you meet on the internet is weird: “You know, they were INTERNET PEOPLE!” but your friends, when they go to things where they meet people from the Internet are never Internet People.
It sounds like a horror movie…..They Came from the Internet!
SEE: The awkwardness!
Hear: The strained conversation

Read: about yourself on their blog the next day!
THRILL: about noting….it’s the Int0rn3tz, man
