After yesterdays weighty discussion of tolerance I cheered myself up today by looking at a couple of recent incredible Internet stories.
- Facebook to Close on March 15th. Ok this one has been about since January 9th but according to unreliable source the CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg thought the site had gotten out of control and for the good of his sanity and normal friendships everywhere he was going to shut down the site on 15th-March and delete all profiles, pictures etc. Of course if you put such a delicious hoax on the Internet it grows legs until even the company itself is forced to deny it.
- George Lucas believes the world will end in 2012. The creator of Star Wars sitting down with Steven Spielberg and some actor who is in the Green Hornet says he believes the world will end in 2012 and allegedly he wasn't joking. The media lap this sort of stuff up but they failed to explain what exactly his reasoning for this why. I for one would like to know if I should be worried given this is the living Jedi who instead of asking for alot of money to make the iconic Star Wars film asked for a cut of the merchandising rights instead and became rich overnight. If George Lucas thinks the world is going to end in 2012 then is he then expecting to re-release it a few years later with a few CGI tweaks and bonus material.?
