Technology is NOT always a good thing

It’s Sunday, the RFM board is closed to posts, and it’s General Conference so the Mormons, so things are really really quiet.

I ended up at You Tube and found a few videos that were quite inherently, well, disturbing, along with a few that were amusing. So I thought I’d share.

First of all, here, apparently, is a video of Ernie the teenage Rock star, who, again apparently, WANTS TO DIE. Suicide is his dream. HE WANTS TO DIE. I’m telling you, he tells us this a lot. Please, someone, if you know ERNIE, call the Suicide Prevention Hotline. I am NOT sure if this is a stunt, but this kid needs some meds. People who TELL you they want to die, do not really want to die. The ones who really want to die just do it.

Ernie, I hope this is just your teenage rock angst video.

Here’s another Ernie video. Ernie needs a hobby. This one is about suicide, too. I’m really worried about Ernie.

Now that my stomach hurts, I found THIS video with a decidedly more upbeat spin on youth.

Then, of course, there is always this guy’s take on the Village People. I’m a little alarmed. Although after Ernie, is hard to take it too seriously.

This one is hilarious. Here we are in hell. And why? Because YOU picked the wrong religion? And which one is right? Here’s a hint: YOU are at TRAPPED BY THE MORMONS.

After I tormented my friend Suzy with the above videos, introducing her to YouTube, she sent me two that are absolutely hilarious. I think I’ve created a monster…. I laughed so hard I cried.

So there’s some fun, er, uh–let’s just say an interesting mix of videos to brighten your Sunday.

    Whether I needed therapy before was questionable, but not now.

    I totally miss confrence! Yeah!

    I hung out on You Tube too… I liked the South Park one about the Mormons where the song started with – “Joseph Smith was called a prophet. Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb”!

    Unfortunately, that is a cultural myth about suicide. Really, most people who follow through with a suicide HAVE in fact told someone that they wanted to, or at least alluded to it. =( I hope someone finds this young man some help
