Seinfeld - the best tv show ever ;D. By the way, Jerry Seinfeld predicted Facebook in 1992:
"So here's two people who hate each other, don't really ever wanna talk...
...but the phone machine is like this relationship respirator...
...keeping these marginal, brain-dead relationships alive.
We do it so when we come home, you can see the little flashing red light.
You go, "All right, messages." You see, people need that.
It's very important for human beings to feel popular and well-liked...
...amongst a large group of people we don't care for."

One Amazing Thing I've Done
