... It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury

@ben not a TLDR but there's interesting stuff: The 13 Strangest Moments From the Zuckerberg Hearing

My mom watched it all day and will report to me later tonight. Very curious about what transpired. She told me that she couldn't tear herself away from the tv lol.
