Should I laugh at other people?

"FML:  F My Life.

LOL.  I read FML every single day.

Some of the stories are just hilarious.  But, just like laughing at someone falling off their bike, there's a bit of guilt involved.  Hey, if it's on the Internet, then it's OK to laugh at people.  Just don't laugh at people in real life.

FML follows the same format as Twitter.  You get about 140 characters to say your FML.  It always starts out at "Today," and ends with "FML".

For example, "Today, I received my passport in the mail. They got my birthdate wrong. Then I picked up my birth certificate that I had sent in with the application. Turns out my parents have been celebrating my birthday on the wrong day for 16 years. FML".

You can submit your own FMLs.  Anonymously, you can also vote up an FML by saying "I agree, your life is f***ed" or vote down an FML by saying "You deserved that one."

In either case, the worst FMLs are in some cases, the best FMLs.

I really cannot wait to read someone say, "Today, I found out I was reviewed on Lunch.com.  I'm a negative 5."

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

I love FML.  No guilt!  I also love TextsFromLastNight, which I discovered from @fashionista3's review of it.

When you become a public figure, I'll make sure to add you as a data point, and then rate you a -5, just so that I see, "Today, I found out I was reviewed on Lunch.com.  I'm a negative 5.  FML." ;D

I looked this up and some of it is pretty funny stuff. Like QueenB says, I'll do my part too!

I read your review about this site I've never heard of and just spent way too much time reading the posts, they are hilarious and sometimes sadly funny - but so addicting I had to drag myself out of there! You should include an 'addictive' disclaimer in your review ;) Some wiki info would be helpful.

:) I thought that "I read FML every single day" would be a disclaimer enough. I'll definitely update the Wiki on this one. It's one of my favorite sites to date.

This site is too entertaining! I almost feel guilty for laughing and feeling better about myself by reading about the misfortunes of others.
