Hey Shackers! It's the First Post! Time to officially start the day at Shacknews. Please take a look.
As I noted in last night's Evening Reading, LeBron definitely said something about China.
NEW: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been hosting secretive talks & off-the-record dinners with conservative influencers in recent months to discuss free speech and partnerships. Among the participants: Tucker Carlson & Lindsey Graham. scoop w/@dlippman:https://t.co/n5IV0N66X4— Natasha Bertrand (@NatashaBertrand) October 14, 2019
Facebook's CEO is actively trying to be awful. Poltico breaks it down nicely. Pretty sure I saw this posted as a subthread in yesterday's Trump Dump Chatty thread. (Turn on political filters to see that mega thread every day)
I also saw that Facebook may only have to pay a $40 million settlement for a video metrics lawsuit. Several content creators went bankrupt over this, and $40 million is nothing for a megacorporation like Facebook. Worst company ever.
Google Dat Sh...tuff

I wonder if the Pixel Buds 2 will be any good. The reviews for the first ten Pixel Buds left a lot to be desired, and at that price point they need to be fucking stellar.
Guess I'll play a couple rounds of fortnite to see the new map
You know, I've got to say, I've never been tempted to delete Facebook than I am right now.
I know, in the greater picture, it won't matter much, but I'm just tired of the bullshit.
Sadly my group of friends still rely on it for event invitations and such.
Make a final post about how you won't stand for the bullshit anymore, another method of contact, and then delete it in a week.
I feel the same way. I don't want to lose touch with certain people who don't seem to use anything else. I guess I could post my email address in a thanks.txt
I did it, it felt good, and more than one year later I haven't missed it at all
I havent deleted it, but I havent signed on in almost a year.
Damn I want tacos
