I am not 100% sure I have heard Zuckerbot's voice before.

Jesus.

Can Farcebook not afford a better voice synth?

$Billionaire's redemption arc, for most billionaires. Looking at you Warren Buffet.

I recall a quote my google fu is failing to find, "A philanthropist is a crook who gives back some of the stolen money."
I vaguely remember a Peanuts cartoon from many years ago about this. I'm posting from a crappy tablet and can't search right now. I'll guess that it was Linus talking to Lucy:

Linus: I want to be a great philanthropist when I'm older.

Lucy: To be a great philanthropist you need to have lots of money.

Linus: I want to be a great philanthropist using someone else's money!

Does JoPe have vm on ignore? He even thanked vm’s post! :freakout: (Though to be fair, for whatever reason, vm didn’t embed the image.)

Anyway, Blade Runner takes place sometime this month.

Why am I mentioning that in this thread? Oh, no particular reason.

That image JoeP posted is somewhat disturbing.

At the risk of being serious, I think it's just that his makeup is so bad in the right-side picture. The Tussauds people have been perfecting their craft for 242 years (for real?!). It's unsurprising theirs looks more natural.

Thank you, Facebook, for giving this 100% selfless patriot a vehicle for saying thanks to all those brave veterans.

This is also OK because it's probably just something from before they probably fixed something that wasn't that big a deal, really, after all.

Hmm. Not randomly selected. In fact, the study was how much you had to pay people to get off F******k. So while it may be a significant result in some ways, it doesn't demonstrate that an arbitrary person on Farcebook would report being happier off it. It might have pre-selected people who were already aware of its effect on them and thinking of quitting.

People who are currently happy with it, or who are aware of its flaws and addictive nature but think they can control it :shiftier: , might not respond the same way.
