Is life always good in social networking?

With twitter, facebook status, etc, people are increasingly letting everyone know what they are doing "in the moment". Outside of angst-ridden teenagers, most people in the 25-30+ age group almost exclusively post their happy thoughts, how great life is, or what they are doing that is amazing. What you see is typically:

"_____ is enjoying a night on a patio!"
"_____ is recovering from a great night out!"
"_____ is looking forward to the weekend!"
"_____ is looking forward to the big party with great friends!"

I think we should start a petition to only post negative thoughts. How about:

"_____ is disgusted with his friends, most of the time."
"_____ is trying to find ways to get out of the night out tonight."
"_____ is generally un-happy with his neighbours. They're idiots."

Alternatively, we could post some Seinfeld-esque updates. Such as:

"_____ is wondering why he didn't pee at his normal 10am timeslot?"
"_____ is determined to park in such a way that the walk to the office is shorter. Don't have to walk around the car."
"_____ is back to his desk, after getting a fresh cup of coffee."
"_____ is using a new bic pen from the supply closet."

Any other ideas to change from the boring old ".......happy to live life to the fullest!!"
