Just Like A Real App

Binky supports all the other stuff you do to make you feel like you're Doing Something while waiting for the bus or whatever. See a bink you like? You can Like it! You can also re-bink your binks, whatever that means. Do whatever the hell you want in Binky -- no one will ever see it.

Pathetic shit for the terminally stupid.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

Let me see if I understand this correctly.

This is a way to appear to be wrapped up in social media walking down the street, riding the bus, eating alone in a restaurant, etc without actually doing so.

Sort of like the old "boss button" idea but for the whole world.

Wouldn't want folks to think you're not doing your social media, right?

Right? :|

Yeah sure. "Ironic". :roll:

But if the app really exists and people are really using it, then they are really using it. Because they still look like they are doing social media and no one knows how "ironic" they are.

Perhaps I'm wrong (but don't give much of a fuck :P ) – I based that mostly on the logo. How people use the app is a different matter.
