The Absurd

A couple of years ago, I created a fake Facebook account under the name 'Søren Kierkegaard'. I then edited my (Karl Smith) Facebook info to show that I was "in a relationship" with Kierkegaard. I thought it was pretty funny, because existentialism.

Søren's account lasted for about two weeks. Then I was notified by Facebook that my shenanigans had been brought to their attention, poor Søren's Facebook page went to digital Hades. 

You know, if I had tried the same stunt on Google+ it would have been fine. A platform that allows 267 "Hugh G Rections" isn't going to fuss over one dead philosopher.
