I think I was probably 19 when I was one of the “dumb fucks” who handed Zuckerberg my personal information without realizing the implications.: tweet via Julia Carrie Wong @juliacarriew, 17 March 2018

Fuck you

Your miserable offspring

Nothing good still exists

Serious Statesman Mark Zuckerberg, whose 2018 challenge is to "focus on fixing the important issues" facing his company, has yet to acknowledge the scandal which has wiped $25bn and counting from its market: 6:48 AM 19 March 2018

Both gripped by the Cambridge Analytica scoops on Channel 4 News. They've pulled back the skin and the foetid innards are on plain show. I can't be hearing any chat about democracy. As for Zuckerberg, his schmuck grin is wearing thin.

Your prerogative in life it seems
Is living out an ad mans dream

I'm glad you began in Ghouta where the memes have all dried up.

Thanks Duncan, lovely to think of and hear from you both.

Without ever having had or been on or whatever the term is, facebook, I have been convinced for some time that Zuck's "dumb fucks" are just that, and deserve no better than what they get from him - taken.

Social networking has made the world an awful place, or else is a symptom and symbol of the awful place the world has become, specifically since about the time social networking hove into view.

One of these days, most likely not til they are well gone, dead, silenced or offloaded to Idlib, it may be recognized that this revolution of Syria's meant something, and not only to those who fought and are still fighting it.

RIP Mark E Smith, the last northern white rhino of so called pop music.

The Fall: Birmingham School of Business School, from Code: Selfish (1992)

The car is at the roundabout
The policeman is at the roundabout
But I'm full of surprises now
And my friend, he said I'm full of surprises now
Let me tell you about scientific management
And the theft of its concealment
The Birmingham School of Business School
In Birmingham
It's main theme
Weave a web so magnificent
Disguise in the art of conceit
Give a very firm handshake
And take the bastards for everything that they rate
The Birmingham Business School of Business School
Deposits prisoner robotics
Home to their wives Stepford
Case-carrying
Business School
Birmingham School of Business School
Birmingham School of Business School
In the heart of Britain
The big heart of England
Lee Coopers [en effuse/on a fuse]
The Birmingham School of Business School
to walkin'
Hitching
Blazers
Builders
Tryna find a job
The jumped up prats
Birmingham Business School
The Birmingham School of Business School
Birmingham School of Business School
Laughing-stock of European
Olympic bidding again and again
Exciting developments
The Birmingham School of Business School
The Birmingham School of Business School
The Birmingham School of Business School
The Birmingham School of Business School
