Today I shared a link for a joke video on FAILBlog with my friend on IM. He told me he didn't want to check it out for the following reasons, in order: 1) FAIL Blog sucks, he only reads other material 2) Joke websites suck in general 3) It's wasting his time I pointed out that in arguing his point, he has already wasted more minutes than that 20 second video. Yet he claims that instant messaging isn't a waste of time. It's not that he's wrong or anything, it's just very strange (not wrong, but weird) to flatly refuse to check out something somebody shared with you. Imagine, your friend is in the room and you go "Hey look at my ROTF Prime!" and he stares away and says "No it's wasting my time" and in trying to look away, he has already wasted more time than simply looking and saying, "Meh, okay...". Just sharing, and wondering if you guys found such experiences and what you make of them.
