Turdberg Thursday

1a

There’s a whole meme community that doesn’t think Mark Zuckerberg is human.

If you click enough times through the website of Saudi Aramco, the largest oil producer in the world, you’ll reach a quiet section called “Addressing the climate challenge.” In this part of the website, the fossil fuel monolith claims, “Our contributions to the climate challenge are tangible expressions of our ethos, supported by company policies, of conducting our business in a way that addresses the climate challenge.” This is meaningless, of course — as is the announcement Mark Zuckerberg made today about his newfound “privacy-focused vision for social networking.” Don’t be fooled by either.

Like Saudi Aramco, Facebook inhabits a world in which it is constantly screamed at, with good reason, for being a contributor to the world’s worsening state. Writing a vague blog post, however, is far easier than completely restructuring the way your enormous corporation does business and reckoning with the damage it’s caused.

    Not in the mood to do much today but it’s time to eat. More bean soup, broke it up yesterday by making scrambled eggs with onions and green peppers mixed in. Made enough for one more serving, but I’ll do soup again today.

    Thawing out a small turkey Jill gave me a couple years ago, bought potatoes last week so a few more days from now I’ll make the turkey, lots of leftovers which I’ll pass over to Pete. Hope he comes over around then, but I can also freeze the cooked turkey.

    Yeah, getting that bird out to cook has been on my mind for quite awhile, it wasn’t getting any younger in that freezer.

    I have a big turkey in there to which I’ll make for the family Easter Sunday.
