    Better summary: A decaying remnant of a once funny show hosts an actor from a crap movie and the douche the movie was about.

      Zukerberg is trying to salvage his reputation with this appearance (among other things), but the world knows he's a douche.

      I wonder how forgiving people will be.

        "Zukerberg is trying to salvage his reputation with this appearance (among other things), but the world knows he's a douche."

        So what...look at all the money he has. Many people do the douche thing for free

        Hell, I'd turn up the 'asshole' factor as much as needed if I could somehow figure a way to make loads of money....most people would I dare say.

      People have been saying that exact same thing since about December, 1975. But somehow, the show is still on the air.

      Why is that? I think that it's because the episodes seem better with age. When they think about the "good old days", they remember the 5% of sketches that were truly funny. When they see new episodes, they focus on the 95% that are mediocre or worse. So, people always think that the show is "going down the tubes".

      However, just like always, there is enough good stuff sprinkled in there to keep an audience, and they'll still be able to glean enough material from old seasons to put out more "Best of $RETIRED_CAST_MEMBER" DVDs.

        Zuckerberg is younger than me and I was born in 1980. Are you sure you got your facts straight about people calling Zuckerberg a douche since the 70's? Maybe his parents were douches too so that last name got stuck with douches or something?
        • One of the attributes of intelligence is a capability for inference, which allows one to develop generalized concepts from experience with particular instances. I suggest you check it out.

            Now you are talking about army generals. Sorry, I am a computer programmer and know nothing about concepts it takes to be a general in the army.

        SNL has stretches where it's good, sometimes great, and just plain bad. Checking Wikipedia [wikipedia.org] for the cast list for the years really shows the ebb and flow. Obviously the original cast was great - iconic. After that, in the 80s there are very few recognizable names in there. Eddie Murphy, Martin Short, Billy Crystal were the very few that had any great comedy chops. Everyone agrees that the Joe Piscopo era was pretty bad. The 90s were once again pretty good: they had Phil Hartman, Adam Sandler, Mike Myer

  • I can''t make out if this is some facetious humor, but what does he mean when he says " snubbed KDE 3's performance."
    • Gnome got ignored by the academy for its role in Antitrust too, so I guess its even handed.
    • What you think it means. The OP appears to believe that the KDE desktop systems appearance in the movie deserved some sort of kudos. There is a link up there that will tell you all sorts of stuff about it. Just click the bit that reads "KDE 3's performance".

      OK. Coffee. Now.

        Well, did it appear in the movie or not? TFA says "Of course, this scene is probably completely different in the finished film, KDE will likely be replaced by an Apple desktop, seeing as the characters are seen using Apple computers a couple of times in the trailer." I'll refuse to see the what is likely a really crappy movie myself to find out whether they made such a faggot stunt or not.
  • This is Monday morning. The MSM already spent the weekend hyping this up.

      well, I consider it "news" that facebook has it's own icon...that's something I really wish I could un-see...
      • They could at least merge Zuckerberg's face with that of a Klingon. . .

      • After the social media bubble bursts, we'll look back and laugh at it...to most of us it will also be a sad reminder that we didn't become the next generation of dot-com boomers...

    • It was just posted here an hour ago. You think that qualifies as OLD?
    • by Jack9 (11421)

      It's not news. It's more frontpage trash that's completely irrelevant because the approved submitters are trying to bring up facebook, as if that makes /. look hip. Heck the story about mexican drug smugglers using catapults is more interesting and relevant to the core purpose of the site.

    still not on it. an old girlfriend was able to track down my brother via facebook. will never sign up. can't even figure out what the fuss is about.

      I resisted for ages, however if you have friends out there in real life it is convenient to use to keep track of what they're up to and also to let your friends know about events and keep track of invites etc.

      Its a tool. If you use it badly it can do bad things. Like a bandsaw or a hammer. If you use it appropriately it can help make things simple.

  • Zuckerberg is a VERY poor actor.
    • by eln (21727)
      What a got from his performance is that he's a HUGE nerd. He looks and acts like the kid in middle school that all the other nerds made fun of. I used to doubt the whole myth that he created Facebook to get laid, but after seeing him in action I kind of believe it now. It's not like he was going to be getting a lot of dates based on his suave personality.
  • When did they stop saying, "Live from New York, its Saturday Night Live!"?

      they didn't?

      Not that I was SNL much anymore (due more to me getting older and struggling to stay awake that late) but I always thought the saying was "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night".

      They changed it after receiving a memo from the office of redundancy office who sent a memo telling them to change it to "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!"

    fitting the stupid facebook icon isnt working

  • by horza (87255)

    Well KDE 3 could get best supporting role, but its performance is steady and not very flashy. They tried KDE 4.0 but found it a bit of a prima donna, with an unstable temperament. I am not sure *nix is going to regain the heady glory days such as with Sandra Bullock in The Net, though Ubuntu made a debut on the small screen with Big Bang Theory.

    In The Social Network (which Zuckerberg says is fiction) he said people wanted to be in the clubs because they are exclusive. How exclusive a cameo in SNL?
    (especially by a software guy)

  • Think we might add "fan boy" as a new category?
  • Jesse Eisenberg Looks and sounds like John Carmack.
    He'd the candidate if someone decided to make a movie about JC.

  • Zuckerberg, Eisenberg, Semberg. Does the role require to have a surname ending in "berg"?
