Wow... now that's a whopper Myspace

How is this even possible?


Apparently I am connected to 1/6 of the world's population through MySpace. And if I believed that, I am sure there is a gentleman on his way to my doorstep right now to sell me the Brooklyn Bridge.

1 Billion people... I am connected to almost everyone in India or China now.

Are there even that many people online? Has there ever been that many people online living and dead combined?

I wonder if a FoxNews analyst tweaked that statistic?

If that number was true, a dollar from each person in the network would net Murdoch and NewsCorp almost twice the buying price of the site(1 Billion dollars for a 540 million dollar investment)

And does that mean that Tom has somewhere in the neighborhood of a billion friends now? That is a scary thought... as he could conceivably send an army of 14-19 year olds to wipe out the rest of humanity with a simple call to arms.

Be afraid, be very afraid.

Well, if you are connected to all those people in China, where were you when I needed that help getting Chinese readers?

I thought we were friends :)

BTW, for some reason now, when you come up on BlogMad I can't comment. But rest assured, I am rating you!

Semaj said...

That's pretty funny.

Tom probably could assemble an army of teenagers, but they won’t do much, but write bad poetry and sulk, because they’re Emo kids.

BTW, I think its time for Tom to change that goofy photo of his.

Geez... why does everyone insist on rubbing my nose in how popular they are on My Space... I KNOW! I only have 7 friends... * pout *

Anomie-Atlanta said...

I agree with Semaj that Tom needs to change the picture. That picture was obviously taken when he was at least five years younger. :)

MC said...

Mr. Fab: Figures Blogger would find another way to deny me comments...

And I will help you with your Sinophiliac urges ;)

Semaj: That's why one of the tags is Emo Kids Attack, because they'll cry all over you.

Dutchy: I am about as popular at MySpace(if you remove bands from my friendslist) as the police at a party.

AA: And when he was a few hundred million dollars poorer.

I'm still not getting MySpace, a comment which immediatly brands me as old. I've got a page, it's ugly, but I don't see the point. Maybe I need to go back and see what else to do with it.

MC said...

I'm there mainly for the music/comedians now.

Karl said...

Wow, dude, when you say you're connected you ain't kidding! You must have more friends than Tom.

MC said...

44 friends... and most of those are musicians/abstract concepts or companies.
