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 Gave Device Makers Deep Access to Data on Users and Friends

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.

I read somewhere that FB plunge of ~19% yesterday was the biggest 1d fall of a US stock ever. Is that correct?

19% is nothing! Black Monday was worse...and that was for the entire market! $ value perhaps. Inflation adjustment though?

It also seemed to me modest losses, but it was written in big on CNBC....
Please don't ask if I buy/sell on Cramer's daily act.

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.
