6 Pics: When South Africa was White and VIBRANT! - The Hanging building!
This building still exists in Johannesburg. It was already built and looking great in the mid-1980s when I came to work in Johannesburg. Someone back then told me that the floors of this building are hanging. I did not quite know what to think of it, but its design is strange and when you look at the bottom, youll see the whole building is held up by a central column. (Just like those buildings of 911).

What a week its been for Facebook, the social media giant has plummeted $37bn in value after news broke of a so-called data grab on more than 50 million profiles by Cambridge Analytica, a political research company with links to Trump. Then there’s Alex Stamos, Facebook’s Chief Security Officer who seems to be refusing to step down. And we’re only on Tuesday.
Now it appears an IM exchange Mark had with a college friend back in 2004, might have been telling of things to come as he expressed disbelief that so many people would willingly hand over their information.
As reported by Business Insider, the conversation according to SAI sources, went as follows.
Zuck: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard
Zuck: Just ask.
Zuck: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS
[Redacted Friend's Name]: What? How’d you manage that one?
Zuck: People just submitted it.
Zuck: I don’t know why.
Zuck: They "trust me"
Zuck: Dumb fucks.
Sure, this was 19-year-old Mark Zuckerberg, not long after he had launched Facebook from the comfort of his own dorm room.
He might have just been bragging to his friend, he wasn’t to know the data treasure trove Facebook would become 14 years later with 2.2 billion users.
Back then he wasn’t the sixth richest person in the world, with a net worth of $70 billion.
He was just some student probably sitting in his pants IM’ing.
