What the fuck does a basic string variable have to do with anything?

You are so absolutely stupid, it's a wonder you can even get out of bed. How many times do you bang into the wall before figuring out it's the wrong side?

Perhaps I should have clarified that things going extinct is universally bad for humanity.

You are incredibly self-absorbed if you think anyone other than the slash-shit echo chamber cares the slightest whether you would ever sign in to FB. It's not like it's an achievement worth crowing about. There are thousands, if not millions, of sites with sign-ins that I haven't signed up for. No one in the world, including my wife and daughter, give even the slightest shit.
