Members of a Facebook group assume themselves as prehistoric humans
Facebook groups are very popular these days, specially among the younger generation. Several Facebook users with common interests getting together in to groups , is a common scenario these days all around the world.
Although most of these groups are regular groups, there are some bizzare groups among the users.
Boobquake is a Group Trying to Prove that Boobs Don’t Cause Earthquakes. Benjyo Soujer is a Japanese Group that Meets to Clean Public Toilets. Accomplishing Something Before the Microwave Reaches :00 is a group of people that tries to accomplish a task before the microwave beeps.Dear Pringles, I Cannot Fit My Hand Inside Your Tube of Deliciousness is a group that urges Pringles to enlarge there container, so they can put their hands inside. That Moment of Shame When an Automatic Door Doesn’t Open for You is another group who discuss this issue of automatic doors and the shame caused through it. These groups have millions of subscribers and are very popular than we imagine.
As a new addition for these set of groups, Sri Lankan users have created a group where the users post and discuss things assuming that they live before 66 million years.
Although it’s not clear if humans existed 66 million years back, these group members assume that a kind of ancient humans did exist. So they assume themselves as these ancient humans and behave that way. They also seem to be assuming that the Facebook is available at that time.
As noticeable activities in this group, they discuss about ancient food, Dinosaurs and hunting etc.. Their most popular creature seem to be the T-Rex. Their discussions also involve a lot on “how to hunt dinosaurs”. Lot of them discuss how they ride Dinosaurs as vehicles and how they raise dinosaurs as pets replacing modern day dogs or cats. Some members even post ancient hunting equipment such as daggers and dinosaurs to ride as vehicles for sale in this group. Although these are not genuine sales, users seem to have lot of fun through these by inquiring the price, bidding on the items etc.. The members also discuss a lot about the discovery of “fire” and “wheel”.
This group however is in Sinhalese language and its concepts are somewhat similar to the concepts in The Flintstones cartoon. Although not realistic, a lot of subscribers seem to be enjoying and having fun in this group through using their creativity to entertain the others.
