Social media was not nearly as common prior to the onset of my incarceration . In short things of this nature were just in there infancy and I was far from interested or computer literate. In being honest I also Couldn't spell Cat if you fronted me both the "C" as well as the "T." During this time an entire generation grew up in the computer age and those older managed to get involved blowing this whole thing up to proportions no one could fathom. Although the technology has changed drastically, unfortunately the people utilizing it have not. What we used to call telephone tough guys have now evolved into Facebook Gangsters. Call me old fashioned, but At least over the phone you had to at least sound aggressive , as if you you had the voice of Michael Jackson It truly took something away from the whole experience. But in this day and age with the aide of computers a Facebook tough guy can not only rehearse what they send before hand, you can put your face on any body one may desire to further their confidence level. I guess this amounts to what we used to call Beer Balls.
All in all I liked the times when some idiot on the phone could recite a few lines from " Goodfellas " it was far more realistic and at least to me a call had a more personal touch. But this tough guy on the computer thing truly leaves something to be desired and to really ruin it sending someone a threat and misspelling words becomes comical as now everyone knows your functionally illiterate. But in short, I did not have this page created to beef with anyone as if I wanted to do as much I could easily do that in the Prison yard on a face to face basis which I am more comfortable with. To be honest though I choose not to do it there either if at all possible. At one point of my life I decided to try and live a bit more righteously, no beefs, scams or schemes and if I can help someone who really needs it I will. Sounds corny or something one might say to the parole board but the one gift I have over the free knowing in all likelihood I am never leaving prison, I really can say what I please.
I guess this is why I learned to express myself with paper but in not trying to turn this into a "Zap Tale" In the future if you really have any animosity towards me please feel free to come up and voice your grievance in the visiting room. If anything at the least I can get you hooked on phonics, unstuck from stupid and if I think your trying hard enough to act correctly, I promise to buy you an ice cream from the vending machine....
