Morning Mail - 3.10.11

Gage: Mr. Zuckerberg, do I have your full attention?
Mark Zuckerberg: [stares out the window] No.
Gage: Do you think I deserve it?
Mark Zuckerberg: [looks at Gage] What?
Gage: Do you think I deserve your full attention?
Mark Zuckerberg: I had to swear an oath before we began this deposition, and I don't want to perjure myself, so I have a legal obligation to say no.
Gage: Okay - no. You don't think I deserve your attention.
Mark Zuckerberg: I think if your clients want to sit on my shoulders and call themselves tall, they have the right to give it a try - but there's no requirement that I enjoy sitting here listening to people lie. You have part of my attention - you have the minimum amount. The rest of my attention is back at the offices of Facebook, where my colleagues and I are doing things that no one in this room, including and especially your clients, are intellectually or creatively capable of doing.
Mark Zuckerberg: Did I adequately answer your condescending question?

Preface: This is not the quote I wanted. The quote I wanted was the one at the end of the movie, but I couldn’t find it. Actually, wait…

Found it!

Marylin Delpy: [Last Lines] You're not an asshole, Mark. You're just trying so hard to be.

That's called live blogging.

This movie not as good as people said it was. I still can name at least five better movies with a similar story that are better. However, it reminds us that drive can take you far in life.

A minute for my Harvard readers. This Type-A shit has got to stop. I was discussing this last night with a friend. I don’t think Mark was grimy for the way he treated his friend Eduardo because Eduardo should have seen it coming. Here’s something about Type-A personalities, they always have to be right. They may concede in an argument, but their mind never changes, they still think they’re right and they will just wait until they have the opportunity to revisit the point to let you know they are right. However, this only works in the world of academia and science, when there is a right answer. The problems that Harvard grads run into are in their interpersonal relationships, mainly friendships. There are no right or wrong answers in real life. You try some shit and I try some shit and we both may be right or wrong. So you see, the thing was Mark wasn’t able to let it go, and people should realize that and note that if I was Eduardo, I would have lawyered up well before I was pushed out the company. You’ll see this with your Harvard friends. They have a very weird approach to friendship. You’ll find that their friends are just as weird as them. Not to say that these people don’t have a lot to offer, but it just seems that their whole circle is homogenous. I mean, how else would it work when you are constantly bumping heads with everyone in your world to prove your right?

A word for thick soul sisters, I want to get with ya, I won’t cuss or hit ya… but I got to be straight when I say I want to…

Beyonce used to perform for Ghadafi.

I don’t know how to spell his name, I also don’t care.

Do you think it impresses me when you big me up at the expense of others?

Hi, my name is Jackson and I own a BlackBerry. Today, I left my charger at home.

Is there a place for BlackBerry owners Anonymous?

This weekend is St. Patty’s Day and today is Thursday, the chances of me being slightly hungover tomorrow are high and I may forget this. Last year, the Metropolitan Police Department gave out over 500 DUIs on the Saturday alone. Please, don’t drink and drive, they are looking for you. Not that I think that driving while intoxicated is the WORST THING in the world. I’m human, I know shit happens. (I do however think that driving when WASTED, is the worst thing in the world.) Anyway, be safe, you don’t want a DUI, and you don’t want to put lives of other drunk people on the road in danger. Have fun, and hope to see you all at Shamrockfest 2011!!! DJ Pauly D! I’d like to tell you where I’d be that night, but I don’t plan on remembering.

It’s all fun and games until you’re on the train with the Young National Rife Association Convention members from Silver Spring metro until Metro Center.

I wasn’t going to go without a fight!

Let’s go Orange.

Life is good. God is good.

I'm laughing. BlackBerry owners Anonymous? I am loving the randomness. I need more random in my blogs. (I don't know many Harvard grads personally...or maybe I just subconsciously avoid them).

I too enjoy the way you write. Reads like my journal. I love green apple Jolly Ranchers. I really hate my job and want to snatch my boss's wig off. I am always perplexed about the end of what they call the "honeymoon period" of a relationship. When things start to simmer down... is that supposed to happen? Feels wrong to me.

Anywho, like your blog.

Marvie: you can snatch that wig off, think about it this way. snatching wigs and hair pieces off is perfectly within bounds. a person really can't get mad. it's sort of like laughing at someone who just peed on themselves. it's messed up but they are in no position to do anything about it. don't snatch her wig off if her name is like Shenanthiasha tho... she probably used to those fights that end with 3 or 4 packs of yaki on the ground.
