The coming depression isn't all bad

Zuckerberg Facebook IPO to Make Him Richer Than Ballmer 

Facebook Inc. (FB)’s $11.8 billion initial public offering will cement the status of 27-year-old Mark Zuckerberg as one of the world’s richest men and put his social network among the highest-valued companies in the U.S. 


What has this guy done for society but give a bunch of narcissistic, preening, massively-entitled exhibitionists an opportunity to advertize and mythologize their vapid self-serving lifestyles?


And this is who society showers with accolades, massive wealth, and florid paeans in the press. 


Talk about massive misallocation of resources.


Now whole generations of brain dead twenty somethings are spending all their time figuring out how to become compensated for ever new methods of wasting each other's time.


Yeah, I know, I just don't get it.


Neither will they when the economy turns down again.  


And yeah, you damned kids better get off my lawn.
