In "Damn, Yeah, I'm Glum" News:

Christine notes that Facebook has bought What's App for absurd sums of money. I mutter something about play money. Christine snorts. I mutter about our retirement money probably being part of that nonsense and how there will be nothing when we are old. Christine looks concerned. So i rant:

And Facebook is buying What's App for billions.

Sixteen Billion ??!!?? For 53 employees??!!??
