This is a question Faking it

Rakky writes, "We've all done it. From qualifications to orgasms, everyone likes to play 'let's pretend' once in a while."

So when have you faked it? Did you get away with it? Or were your mendacious ways exposed?

Oh noes!
I have another stalker!!

I remember that day well. We'd been taking part in the Volcanoes On The Beach competition and I gave in to the urge to show off....


Gah! I've been conned. That's really rather clever

Tell me thats a mod that shows your own facebook.

Otherwise, theres a picture of me there :P

I'm seeing me. That has to be a mod.
And one that scared the crap out of me at that. Not cool at this time of night.

Got me very worried for a second.

But then I thought, who the fuck would stalk me? And I calmed down.

Nicely done!
Oh crap, I wasn't even logged in and my FBK pic showed up ... Nearly sent an abusive message to a mate who lurks here occasionally 'coz I thought he was f**king with my head!
(, Tue 15 Jul 2008, 3:26, closed)
That is very clever. How'd you do that?
(, Tue 15 Jul 2008, 4:20, closed)
Having just sent you a message...
The penny has dropped that people are seeing their own facebook image rather than mine.... Doh!!!

Its 05:20, you can't expect me to be awake, surely.

Excuse me..
Can you tell me who is going to refund me for the pants I have just shit. lol
(, Tue 15 Jul 2008, 8:59, closed)
how does this work? it's really clever, but slightly worrying too.
(, Tue 15 Jul 2008, 9:00, closed)
It's Simple
It looks for a cookie from facebook and displays the image for that user.

Delete your cookies then look at it again - it'll show a broken image and it'll stay that way until you visit Facebook.

Still a good trick though.

That is why you are an IT guru!

this shat me up for a second!

I'm glad
I'd read all the replies before I'd signed into facebook...

It's clever though. How do you do it?

EDIT: Ah, I see now... still very clever though.
(, Tue 15 Jul 2008, 9:20, closed)
thats a mean little trick
especially as my status mentions my injured ankle which has prevented me going into work

which isn't being faked.

proper benny on there... i thought someone was taking the piss out of me :( :(

My heart is beating incredibly fast, that startled me so much!

I just went and changed all my privacy settings to the most stringent they have, and then read all the replies to this thread...

You clever fucker.
Have some clicks for nearly giving me shit in my pants.

My first thought was
'Oh god, not another b3ta stalker!'

Very, very clever.

I know how it works but I still have a lingering uneasy feeling! Nice one!

I feel cheated
Obviously not being the facebook whore everyone else is, I didn't have any cookies for it to work on and as such just thought it was a broken link :(

I, like everyone else, nearly had a trouser accident.

However, my status at the moment: 'is sick and tired of fucking renting'.

As it appears in the picture? 'is sick and tired of fucking...'.

That was particularlly worrying as my facebook status is about a certain female person I might have met up with last night. It was also cryptic - so thought I'd been caught out by someone :)

Anyway *clicks* because its a fake and this is a winner.

Here's the messages I've received:
"Thats My Fooking Profile Picture
And I really did get to go to Top Gear,honestly!"

"I have no idea why you should find it funny to put my details on b3ta, unless it was because I 'sorted out the animals'.

I have no desire to see myself on here, and would appreciate its removal before this time tomorrow.

Feel free to change it to a message about what a boring old fart I am, but I do not want randon b3tans logging on to my profile and sending my friends messages."

That's me!!!!!!!!!!"

"And who is this?
Ok, I know that you must know me then..."

"Who you?
That's just bizarre."

That's just unfair... plainly unfair..."
