"How to Make a Clean Break with the Clingiest Social Networks"

Now, to permanently delete your account, you'll need to learn where the delete option resides. The easiest way to find it is by clicking the "Quick Help" icon in the top-right corner, then the "Search" icon. When you see the search field, type “delete account.” You'll see a list of search results. Click on "How do I permanently delete my account?" and Facebook will give you the obscure instructions to “log into your account and let us know.” In this case, “let us know” is code for “delete my account,” so click on that link. From here, the final steps are clear: Enter your password and solve the security captcha, and your request to permanently delete your account is underway.

Yes, you read that right—it's just a request. Facebook delays the deletion process for a few days after you submit your request, and will cancel your request if you log into your account during that time period. You know, just in case you change your mind. It's crucial that you don't visit Facebook during this waiting period. Delete the app from your phone.

If you want to delete your account but don't want to lose all your account information, download all your crucial data first. The information you can download includes everything from the photos and statuses you post, to the ads you’ve clicked and the IP addresses you’ve used. The list of what’s included is extensive, but you can view it in its entirety here. Also, due to the nature of this data, you’ll want to keep it in a safe place.

To download your account, go into Settings> General Account Settings > Download a copy of your Facebook data and then click “Start My Archive.” When your download is ready, Facebook will send you an email with a link to download. For added security, this link will expire after a few days, so download it quickly.


In a nutshell, here's the link to delete your FaceBook account:

(Facebook will demand proof that you really are the owner of the account, so be ready to answer a few questions.)

Further down this Wired article you'll see instructions for deleting Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and a few others.

After many years of pretending I never had a Facebook account, and never having visited FB for 15 years, I finally deleted my old account yesterday, using these instructions. I got a nice feeling of accomplishment in doing it too.
Take that, Mark Zuckerberg!

Am I the only one who can't find Montenegro on the map?

OK I did find it, but only with help from my friend Google.

Montenegro is one of the countries that split off from the former Yugoslavia and it's closely aligned with Serbia culturally and politically.

Study Says Coffee Increases Longevity, Just Don't Caffeine Yourself to Death Like Balzac

(link) http://www.grubstreet.com/2018/07/study-says-coffee-may-increase-longevity.html


Coffee is many things. A finalist in the World Cup of Best Ice Cream Flavors. The only thing keeping you awake right now. A stimulant to which we’re all terribly, terribly addicted. It’s also, according to the latest food study, the fountain of youth humanity has sought for centuries and even crossed oceans for. To think: It was roasted bean water all along!

The study by the United Kingdom’s National Cancer Institute purports that drinking coffee can help you live longer. The study surveyed 500,000 adults in Britain, and found that after a ten-year period the coffee drinkers had a, uh, lower risk of death than non-coffee drinkers. Of course, everyone has the same risk of death, which is 100 percent.

Those surveyed answered questions about their coffee, smoking, and drinking habits and medical history, among other things. The coffee drinkers of all levels were 10 to 15 percent less likely to die than those who didn’t drink coffee. But! The great news is that, according to the study, in the meantime you can continue to be a caffeine addict and drink up to eight cups of coffee a day in your efforts to live longer.

Look, it seems like there’s a food or drink study for anything you want to believe is good for you. Food companies fund studies to prove that their goods are healthy; one major producer of studies, Cornell’s Food and Brand Lab, was found to be publishing shoddy research. So, broadly speaking, take these studies with lots of grains of salt, which is good for your blood pressure! Coffee alone has been the subject of other studies claiming that it’s good for your heart, prevents liver disease, and more.

This is great news my friends!

Appreciation thread for Pittsburgh editorial cartoonist Rob Rogers

Hi Penn friends!

I just posted this article in General Discussion with an update for Rob Rogers:

Appreciation thread for Pittsburgh editorial cartoonist Rob Rogers

Rob Rogers had been the popular editorial cartoonist for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette for 25 years, but he was recently fired for political reasons. The new editorial director of the Post Gazette refused to publish about 3 weeks of Rob's cartoons because they were considered "anti-Trump", and then he was let go in mid-June.

Rogers is still drawing his popular cartoons and sharing them on his website here: (link) http://robrogers.com/

Many Rogers toons have a liberal/Democratic/anti-Trump feel to them, while others deal with local Pittsburgh issues of one stripe or another. His popular cartoon series called "Brewed on Grant" satirize Pittsburgh city and county politics, and occasionally he'll do a toon for one of our beloved sports teams. Meanwhile Rogers is lining up paying work by getting published in a new liberal start-up publication called Pittsburgh Current which should be hitting the streets this week. Rogers also has a crowdfunding effort with support from many of his fans on Pantreon.

Here are just a few of Rob's recent toons that can be seen on his website, but didn't make it into the newspaper.

Thanks friends!
