    Is this "owned" by the same people that started FML?

    If not, this is a pretty lame attempt to trump FML.

    If by "a pretty lame attempt to trump FML" you mean "a ridiculously awesome attempt to trump FML that completely succeeds and is hilarious," then I agree.

    I think its clever and hilarious. Kinda makes fun of the immaturity of the FML approach to life.

    I prefer this to FML personally. Thanks for the link.

    Haha, I find it funnier than the complete BS people make up and post on FML. FML got old after a week.

    This is good for around 5 minutes. After that, it's very below average (aka: bad).


    FML is better. A lot of them may be crap, but I'm bound to laugh a bit harder at FML than I am at MLIA.

    Seriously, these things happen to me everyday, why do I want to hear about them? The clever wit associated with creating the MLIA site wore out after reading about 1/2 a page of bland material. At least on FML some of the outrageous ones are still funny. Plus there always seems to be at least a few that are plausible.

    But whatever, to each their own, as long as you get a laugh I suppose.

    Although this one did make me laugh: "Today, I got a boner in class. No one noticed. MLIA."

    Yawn...if I want to read about boring things that happen in everyday life, I'll just think about my day today.

    Gotta agree there. It's good for a few pages until it starts to grind. But it seems both sites could interchange each notes ending and they'd still be relevant.

    Maybe ten for me. :) FML is funnier at first, but much more predictable than MLIA.

    Yep- same here. People can't think of more creative ways to fill their web space? :confused:

    A sad, lame attempt to copy FML.

    Example
    MyLife
    "Today I had rice. I'm asian. MLIA "

    FML
    "Today, I heard my sister masturbating in her room. I took the dog around the block to get out of the house, and I came back to see her leaving her room... my electric toothbrush in her hand. FML"

    No comparison.
