Facebook in the Twilight Zone

Instead of a group of funny Friday videos, I thought I would share just one amusement for the week.  I have spent most of the week sick with a sinus infection, so I haven’t done a whole lot.  I was watching a classic Twilight Zone episode with the kids last night though and thought I would show them one of my all time favorite episodes.  It can be found on youtube in three clips, the first and last of which is below.

The story is about a guy who pays for his paper on the way to work and the quarter he flips into the tray lands on edge.  From that moment on, he can hear others thoughts around him.  It is kind of a funny episode.

This last clip shows him at work.  The speech he makes about how bad it was to hear everyone else’s thoughts (just around the 2:15 mark onward) is what made me think of Facebook in the first place.  It is kind of like seeing everybody naked.  Figures that a young male college student would be the one who came up with the original idea.  This post might have lost a little of its funny, but no worries.

Penny for your thoughts?

One thought on “Facebook in the Twilight Zone

  1. To hear everyone’s thoughts around us would be hell.

    Rod Serling was a genius. Loved that show.
