A new warning from FEMA about Irene:
As Hurricane Irene batters the East Coast, federal disaster officials warn that Internet outages could force people to interact with other people for the first time in years.

Residents are bracing themselves for the horror of awkward silences and unwanted eye contact.

FEMA has advised: Be prepared. Write down possible topics to talk about in advance. Sports...the weather. Remember, a conversation is basically a series of Facebook updates strung together."

3. Ha!
I'm glad I saw this, because I was just sorely tempted to go off on someone else about their penchant for posting death tolls and such. Probably not a good idea.

"Remember, a conversation is basically a series of Facebook updates strung together" = brilliant. :D
