Disturbed to see my son signing up to one of these apps yesterday which posted a graphic description of the projected mode, date and location of his demise (supposedly within the next few years) to his Facebook status. My wife was in tears when she saw it. Needless to say we made him disconnect from it and remove the post. I know there is some bad stuff on Facebook but this is a bit of a different slant on the usual annoyances. Anyone else think these kinds of things are beyond the pale or are we being wusses?
Just seemed like quite dark stuff for a 13 year old to be confronting, and unnerving information to have appear in my info stream. When I was his age I was playing model railways and watching John Noakes on Blue Peter.
Your wife cried? smacks head. Are you aware, Sir, that these apps randomly generate dates and strange ways to die? Only yesterday I found out that in 20 years from now I shall die after being abducted by aliens...
I was killed by a falling snowflake my mum went mad at me for doing it and I'm 30, married and have 2 kids in our own home. I think it's just a parent thing seeing your child's name on a head stone. In the end it's suppost to be a joke so don't take it to heart
