  •  You have a point, but.. (6+ / 0-)

    I have a number of FB friends/associates/relatives who do in fact resemble such "idealized" families; even when seen in person.

    •  Oh, I do too. (6+ / 0-)

      Heh, I was just talking to a sibling  of one of them. The gushing about their "happily ever after" family life was betrayed by what she told me: screaming matches that last for days, so the (very attractive) teenage children often stay at their friends' home for days on end.

      The picture-perfect family is once again betrayed by reality.

      I should have been clearer. What looks "beautiful" on FB often isn't. Of course I have some perfectly normal friends who also happen to be attractive (so their kids are too).

      But they're the ones usually posting funny stories about how goofy their lives are.

      I'm very skeptical of "beautiful" people. I'm not a fan of the constant complainers and victims, but FB has lots of people who seem to spend much of their time in spin.

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
