Derived from the popular netspeak expression 'Fuck My Life'
(FML for short), fmylife.com is basically schadenfreude at it's best. It can
provide many solid hours of entertainment: laughing, or just being genuinely
shocked (or even saddened, for those empathetic types) at the unfortunate luck
of some people. The site provides a twitter-like feed of daily experiences submitted
by users. Each entry begins with 'Today' and ends with 'FML', and is limited by
a certain number of characters.
Users can rate each FML, giving it either 'You deserved that one' or 'I agree, your life is f***ed', as well as
comment on and moderate posts. Recently, the site has added a bunch of
illustrated FML's, so if the text and your imagination aren't sufficient to
fully capture the misfortunes of the entries, then these are for you. T-shirts
are also available if you want to display your adoration for this site in
public. To sum up, one of the best recent FMLs:
"Today, my friend had
to take my cat who has a tumor to be put down when I wasn't home since I
couldn't bare to take him myself. I have two cats. He took the wrong one. FML"
