But Facebook, that's so unfair!

Timeline, Facebook's hypergraphical profile triumph, has been around for almost a year—and there are still people either ignorant of or averse to the redesign. Tough pokes, says FB: you're getting switched before the year is over. TechCrunch reports all of Facebook's Timeline holdouts will soon see a message prompting them to prepare for the switchover, providing a chance to hide photo albums of you shotgunning beers and add "Life Events" like marriage and lockjaw.
Then, after seven days, boom—you're Timelined, and there's no going back.

A Letter From Mark Zuckerberg About Facebook's Earnings

Dear Facebook user:
 Hey it’s Mark.
It seems like just yesterday that Facebook had its historic I.P.O. and, thanks to you, my net worth soared to a staggering $20 billion. What an awesome day that was for both of us.
Today was a different kind of day. Facebook shares are plunging because the geniuses on Wall Street expect us to, and I quote, “make money.” That’s why your Facebook friend Mark needs your help. Facebook only makes money if people click on its ads. Do you know what Facebook ads are?
They’re those things on your Facebook page that you have never clicked on even once.
 But at Facebook we’re looking to change that. After doing extensive market research, we learned that there is one time when people actually do click on Facebook ads: when they’re drunk. This is the same business model that iTunes is based on. I’m sure a few of you have had the experience of using Facebook late at night, only to wake up and find that you’ve gotten seven auto-insurance quotes or enrolled as a criminal-justice major at the University of Phoenix. Why am I sharing this information with you? Simple. If you want to save Facebook—and I know that you do—I need you to start drinking now. At Facebook headquarters, we like to have all-night coding parties where we get shitfaced and write algorithms and other computer stuff you wouldn’t understand. I want you to do the same thing, except instead of coding, I want you to click on random ads for Ancestry.com and Christian Mingle, over and over and over again. You don’t even have to buy anything—just keep clicking. And drinking.
Now, you might be asking yourself, “Why do I have to help Mark out?
Isn’t Facebook’s stock price his problem?” Well, in a sense, yes.
But maybe this is a good time to remind you that I have cached all of those photos you posted of yourself doing J├Ągerbomb jello shots at that Tri Delt party in 2007.
 And I’ll bet your future employers would love to take a peek at them.
Kthxbye Mark

Compliment

A man was reading the newspaper during breakfast and said to his wife,
"Look at this. Another beautiful actress is going to marry a baseball player who's a total dope!
 I'll never understand why the biggest jerks get the hottest wives."
 His wife said, 'Thank you.'

Step Back, I Know First-Aid

When a car skidded on wet pavement and struck a telephone pole, several bystanders ran over to help the driver. A woman was the first to reach the victim, but a man rushed in and pushed her aside.
"Step aside, lady," he barked. "I've taken a course in first-aid!"
 The woman watched for a few minutes, then tapped him on the shoulder.
"Pardon me," she said. "But when you get to the part about calling a doctor, I'm right here."

Van Gogh from Space

NASA asked the public to vote on their favourite images from more than 120 images in the online 'Earth as Art' collection acquired by the Landsat programme over the last 40 years. The winner was this image, called Van Gogh from Space due to its similarity to Van Gogh's painting "Starry Night". In the satellite photo, acquired on 13 July 2005, massive congregations of greenish phytoplankton swirl in the dark water around Gotland, a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea.

Cat Hammock

"If you have pets you've already accepted the fact that your home will be perpetually covered in a layer of fur. Visitors, though? Probably not as keen. So this tiny hammock lets your cat still use your furniture without leaving it covered in hair."
