Here's how thoroughly ingrained in my head some pieces of MTV became between the ages of 5 and 20: While watching VH1 Classic's weekend-long MTV celebration, they showed a clip from an MTV Movie Awards. When Scarlett Johansson and Jake Gyllenhaal were announced, I immediately thought, "MAPS! MAPSMAPSMAPSMAPSMAPS."

Why do I keep getting Facebook friended by people I don't know? And I don't mean complete strangers or spam/sexbots, I mean people I obviously went to school with at some point, and with whom I share mutual FB friends, but who I don't remember whatsoever.
