    I like the Zuck.
    The people that hate him are the ones that share / shared, believe / believed too much on FB.

      Do you know him? Do you know much about him? When you say you ‘like’ him; what do you ‘like’ about him?

        I meant I like his business ethics and technology brain, I like his work, as is the context of this post. I don’t know him personally, no. I like him the way some people might like Kylie Minogue for example.

      I always wondered if these guys carry guns and it’s something the authorities just turn a blind eye to.

        Interesting question. I assume there’s some diplomatic agreement regarding state representatives, but what about celebs or wealthy people?

      Pat Kenny (erectile dysfunction) and Miriam O’Callaghan (face cream) are very, very, very angry about what they claim are fake FB ads.

    I know he’s all powerful and all that, but have you heard him speak out loud? It’s like a squeaky stuck pig whose voice hasn’t yet broken.

        It’s like the sound of Roadrunner’s voice coupled with one of those kiddie xylophones being played with headbanging abandon.

        I’ve never been attracted to geeks I’m afraid, I find them insufferable

          I unfortunately have to work with them,

          Genius at a coding level and zero common sense in the real world. Imagine yourself as the client I say- which results in either a confused look or a blank stare. K.I.S.S.- Keep It Simple Stupid is a concept they just cannot comprehend.

            Perhaps they are keeping it simple.
            But ‘simple’ for a genius is different than ‘simple’ for your average bear.

    He has that smarmy look that convinces me, that he is as big a creep as I have always thought he was.

    (Shiver!)

    Mr. Greenberg is looking even more robotic that usual.

    His grandfather, Mr. Rockefeller, would no doubt be pleased.

    Not to mention Mr. Tubal-cain.

    Rashi noted that he ‘spiced and refined the Cain’s craft to make weapons for murderers.’

    No doubt.
