    Apocalypse
    1 (often the Apocalypse) the complete final destruction of the world, as described in the biblical book of Revelation.

    Origin
    Old English, via Old French and ecclesiastical Latin from Greek apokalupsis, from apokaluptein 'uncover, reveal', from apo- 'un-' + kaluptein 'to cover'

    I tend to use the true root (Greek) to define the word and not some hijacked religious slander/libel.

    I never really got the idea of facebook, it's kinda like Live Journal, Xanga, etc. but with pictures.

    I mean if I want to put pictures on the net I can just put them on my own web server. Most ISPs
    provide web space with each account their users could use to host pictures (or sounds, or video to
    an extent) of course that does involve learning how to use an FTP client which isn't particularily
    complex but for some reason most people don't "get".

    Also Facebook is a bit too popular, a little too much opportunity for incompatible groups of people
    to clash. At least the old blog sites seemed to each have their niche groups. I tend to think of the
    internet as narrowcasting to a more relavant group than trying to broadcast to everybody. Maybe
    my philosophy is just stuck in 1997. ^_^

    Overview: The truly staggering valuation of $50 billion that Goldman Sachs has placed on Facebook, the Internet social networking website is significantly higher than the estimated $30 billion value of silver held in the vaults of the world. Does this mean that Facebook is hugely overvalued in a tech stock bubble reminiscent of the 2000 crash? Or that silver is massively undervalued as a commodity that still trades for less than its all-time high 30 years ago? Or both?
    Big deal.
    The porn industry is worth $13 billion with a base of 43% of ALL internet users.

    Just sayin'....

    My opinions might change.
    But I'm still right.

    Lightbulb I used to wonder how inferior M$ always seemed to come out on top. Now I know.

    Logically and fundamentally both Google and Apple should have been short not long plays.
    But when the hidden hand works its magic, anything goes.
    Facebook & Google are CIA Fronts

    As a youngster, I was awed by people who ''made it to the top'' by creating and innovating corporations, technologies, or simply establishing themselves through sports, music, entertainment, etc. thus becoming millionaires.

    Now as I have grown older, I realize how illusory this paradigm really is. I came to the conclusion that if you want to reach the ''top',' you have to give up your soul.

    Take Mark Zuckerberg for example. He is one of the most ''successful entrepreneurs'' in the last decade. Having made a fortune through his Facebook empire, he reaches more than 500 million people worldwide. It seems like a fairytale. A student creates a new interface to connect the people throughout the world. Well, it sounds great doesn't it? It would, if we were true.

    Here is a good video that demonstrates that Facebook was indirectly funded by the CIA with the goal of learning and storing everything there is to know about you. Why? To monitor and ultimately control.
