I want to stand on a mountain and scream, "How can you be so gullible?"

Yesterday, my phone starting pinging with instant message alerts. Several dozen people had forwarded me the latest "Mark Zuckerburg" instant message, informing Facebook users that they would soon have to start paying for Facebook.

I want to shout, "How can you be so gullible?"

The real Mark Zuckerburg testified before a congressional panel last week. Did you not hear or read anything of what he had to say?

Apparently not, because I've received all these forwards of this crappy instant message and video below.

I want to shout, "How can you be so gullible""

Let's talk about the crappy video. Zuckerburg has access to state of the art production facilities and technologies. Don't you think he'd make something with a little less blurriness?

Then there's the written message from "The Zuck Man" himself. Um, don't you think Mark Zuckerburg knows how to use spell check - or at least could afford to employ an army of individuals to spell check for him?

I want to shout, "How can you be so gullible?"
