Setting up a secret Facebook page where members of your frat post photos and videos of their "conquests", many taken without the woman's knowledge... what could possibly go wrong? :roll:

I'm posting this here as yet another example of "bad ideas of the digital/social media age" - I'm not posting it because of UCF being a conference mate, and we probably shouldn't comment on that school in particular because, let's face it, the same type of thing probably goes on at our beloved institution.

Not directly related but still gets to the comment of skewed behavior in the social media age.

I am a volunteer “Pony Patrol” at Assateague Island National Seashore just across the bay from where we retired. The purpose is to educate visitors about proper behavior around the 81 wild ponies we have on the seashore and to physically step in where necessary to ensure the safety of both shore visitors and the ponies. They are wild but have gotten used to people. This is not a petting zoo. Federal statutes with hefty fines mandate a 40’ separation but that is not always possible, especially when a band of horses walks the beach.

Yesterday, I was on the beach keeping a band of three ponies out of mischief and 99% of folks were respectful and moved when I asked them, and the ponies were generally behaved. However, this time the band started moving rather quickly along water’s edge and one family of four with two toddlers were right in the path—the horses had closed to within about 10’ of the family and what were the parents doing? Filming with their iPhones. While their two toddlers were on the beach in the direct path of three 1000 pound wild horses. :xmad: In my best military voice I yelled at the parents “put your phones down and pick up your kids!” This could have gone very badly but it didn’t.

When I got home last night and told my wife that this generation is more interested in documenting their deaths than preventing it. I don’t know if I am the first to say that but it just about sums it up.
