this is a nift idea:
Live Journal Ancestry: Who made you get a LiveJournal? Post that person's LJ, and if this meme spreads, see, you'll eventually be able to click click click and see who your LJ grandfather, great grandmother, great great grandthing, etc, etc, is all the way back to the pioneer days.


For me, that'd be the group mslulu, mahdi, gregory_geiger, tobin, ox_number_10, and I can't recall if there were any others at the time.

This meme breaks down when it was an ex-girlfriend you aren't on any terms with that got you to LJ in the first place.

Granted, she didn't want me on LJ, because that's where she vented about our relationship.

how's it break down? if link to her, even though you don't like her, and she'll get the meme through other connections (the joy of LJ memes -- they spread like wildfire) and she'll link to who started her, etc...

Just 'cause you link to someone doesn't mean you like them.

But it does mean that I'm willing to give such linkage my time and effort, and that I, on some level, endorse that link - either as someone/thing to condone, or as an example of someone/thing to condemn. Or, at the very least, a point of interest. My friends are a point of interest for me.
