Those Twins From Harvard Who Hate Mark Zuckerberg For Creating Facebook? A Court Of Appeals Is Sick Of Their Whining.

Published

on

If you saw “The Social Network,” or follow the story of the birth of Facebook, you know that two twin jocks at Harvard had a similar idea (or rather, the same idea, depending on your school of thought) and eventually sued Mark Zuckerberg for stealing it. In their initial lawsuit, they got $100 million in Facebook shares as settlement.

Unsatisfied, they continued to fight, arguing that they were misled about just how much Facebook was worth, and fought for yet more money. (Keep in mind, they weren’t exactly destitute in the beginning.)

Well, the Ninth Circuit Court has had enough… ruling that they are not entitled to more.  But they went a step further, issuing a ‘quit yer’ bitchin’ sorta language within the ruling:

It reads (via Gawker)

The Winklevosses are not the first parties bested by a competitor who then seek to gain through litigation what they were unable to achieve in the marketplace. And the courts might have obliged, had the Winklevosses not settled their dispute and signed a release of all claims against Facebook. With the help of a team of lawyers and a financial advisor, they made a deal that appears quite favorable in light of recent market activity. For whatever reason, they now want to back out. Like the district court, we see no basis for allowing them to do so.

At some point, litigation must come to an end. That point has now been reached.

Meow and hurrah! Natch, still the Winkle-kids (wait- that sounds like a great children’s show!) vow to press on. Honestly, if I ever receive 100 million (scratch that – when I make 100 million – fingers crossed,) I will spend my most trying times soaking up sun on a yacht somewhere and stop my complaining.

AWKWARD: Ross Didn’t Like His Pet Monkey On ‘Friends’?!?

Published

Remember back in the 90’s on Friends when Ross got a pet monkey while living in New York City and no one batted an eye? Those were truly simpler times. Here in the jaded 2019, we just discovered that David Schwimmer didn’t like working with that monkey and now I don’t know what to believe anymore.

Last night, Matt LeBlanc stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote his latest sitcom, Man With A Plan, but it was his chat about a particular Friends star that has the internet buzzing. When Jimmy Kimmel coyly asked if Matt keeps in touch with Marcel the monkey (who is actually named Katie in real life), Matt shared a nugget of information that I wasn’t prepared to ingest. David Schwimmer did not like working with the monkey!

“I liked the monkey! I like animals, and the monkey was really cool. Schwimmer… Not so much. He’s the one that had to work with it the most, so he was like, ‘Again with the monkey?’ But I got along great with it.”

Ouch. Right in the nostalgia. Apparently Katie the monkey wasn’t always the most cooperative co-star as Matt recounted the time she forced taping to come to a complete halt when she climbed above the lighting grid to hang out on the ceiling. It took about thirty minutes and a few mealworms to finally get the monkey back down to the set! Talk about a diva.

VIDEO: The 38 Seconds Of Video Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Olivia Jade Is Regretting Right Now.

In a video from last year, Loughlin’s daughter says she will balance trips to Fiji and NYC into her school calendar, “doesn’t know how much of school (she is) going to attend” but she wants the experience of game days, partying, and “doesn’t really care about school, as you know.”

As mom Lori Loughlin faces allegations she paid 500,000 to help get her daughter Olivia Jade into college as a member of the crew team – even sending photographs of her daughter on a rowing machine to create the impression she was an athlete – a video made by her daughter in August is making the rounds again for the embarrassing references she makes to not even caring about getting an education in the first place.

Follow @brianbalthazar on twitter.

In the video, an entitled Olivia Jade, a YouTuber followed by 2 million people on the video platform, says she will balance trips to Fiji and NYC into her school calendar, “doesn’t know how much of school (she is) going to attend” but she wants the experience of game days, partying, and “doesn’t really care about school, as you know.”

Why she hasn’t taken this video down yet completely escapes me.

Naturally, social media has unleashed upon her, although it is unclear whether Olivia Jade even know her entrance into college was a result of bribes, (if the allegations are proven correct.)

In either case, the social media celebrity had to apologize days after this video first came out, and is more than likely wishing she had taken it down entirely now…
