Facebook is shit

I succumbed to peer pressure about a month ago and started a Facebook account. I feel that I have given it a fair crack of the whip, and once the initial novelty wore off I found it to be a load of childish boollacks. I have, therefore, deactivated my account and in doing so I instantly felt more grown-up and mature.

EDIT 8 Sep 2012

I started this blog in 2005 and, disappointingly,  this post, written nearly 5 years ago, represents my biggest impact on the internet to date.
At the time of writing it has been viewed 4,531 times and received 177 comments, the most recent of which is only a week old.
Admittedly, this level of traffic is pretty paltry by today's standards but, be that as it may, it remains my most effective advertising platform. With this in mind, I am going to be an absolute whore and use it as such:

I have written a book...

...and no one wants to read it. Well, no agent at any rate. I have decided to admit defeat, give in to vanity, and publish the blasted thing myself. I've created a new blog to document the process. I'm not sure why - it just seemed the thing to do.
The book is called 'Unbelievable: Christianity as a House of Cards', a title that, I hope, speaks for itself. A brief synopsis of the book can be found here, but the following is the blurb that adorns the back cover, as well as the description section on the Amazon web page:

What happens if, for the sake of argument, one indulges the faithful by accepting as many of their claims as possible?

What happens if one accepts the existence of God and the Gospel account of Jesus?

In short, what happens if one takes Christianity seriously and then plays it at its own game?

It would appear that even with these rather charitable concessions, Christianity still doesn't make sense.

If any of you fellow Facebook haters want to buy the book, please follow this link where you will find further links to Amazon, Amazon Kindle, the iBookstore, and NOOK books.
You would be making a chubby nobody very happy, and that should be reward enough in itself.
