The FTC and Facebook are negotiating a record, multibillion-dollar fine for the company's privacy lapses

Finally, billions, not millions. Fuck these negotiations: tell them it's $20 billion and take them to court if they don't accept it.

Richard Pryor is up there with the best comedians of all time for me. I'd never seen black and white footage of him, he looks completely different.
