Something's wrong with your amygdala, ppauper.
When the amygdala is damaged, previously threatening stimuli come to be treated as benign.
I'm too mellow these days?

Facebook plunges more than 24 percent on revenue miss and projected slowdown
zuckerberg lost $16B in minutes. He's still got plenty left Paul Posts: 8996 Joined: July 20th, 2001, 3:28 pm ### Re: Facebook According to some experiments one typically says that to feel happy/safe you need 50% more than you currently are worth. But that only applies to normal people. tagoma Posts: 18233 Joined: February 21st, 2010, 12:58 pm ### Re: Facebook I read somewhere that FB plunge of ~19% yesterday was the biggest 1d fall of a US stock ever. Is that correct? ppauper Posts: 70239 Joined: November 15th, 2001, 1:29 pm ### Re: Facebook in dollar terms it would seem so Paul Posts: 8996 Joined: July 20th, 2001, 3:28 pm ### Re: Facebook 19% is nothing! Black Monday was worse...and that was for the entire market!$ value perhaps. Inflation adjustment though?

dinner with the zuckerbergs
What was your most memorable encounter with Zuckerberg?
Well, there was a year when he was only eating what he was killing. He made goat for me for dinner. He killed the goat.
In front of you?
No. He killed it before. I guess he kills it. He kills it with a laser gun and then the knife. Then they send it to the butcher.
A . . . laser gun?
I don’t know. A stun gun. They stun it, and then he knifed it. Then they send it to a butcher. Evidently in Palo Alto there’s a rule or regulation that you can have six livestock on any lot of land, so he had six goats at the time. I go, “We’re eating the goat you killed?” He said, “Yeah.” I said, “Have you eaten goat before?” He’s like, “Yeah, I love it.” I’m like, “What else are we having?” “Salad.” I said, “Where is the goat?” “It’s in the oven.” Then we waited for about 30 minutes. He’s like, “I think it’s done now.” We go in the dining room. He puts the goat down. It was cold. That was memorable. I don’t know if it went back in the oven. I just ate my salad.
It’s hard to find a metaphor in that.
I don’t know what you’re going to do with that, but hopefully that’s not the headline. Revenge is a dish best served warm. Or cold.
