    While I agree Zuckerberg stole their idea how can you bring six lawyers to a mediation hearing and claim you didn't understand?

    Lawyer jokes now please! :-)

    OK, here's one of my favorites:

    One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw a lady and her two skinny children along the roadside eating grass. Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate. He asked the lady, "Why are you eating grass?"

    "We don't have any money for food," she replied. "We have to eat grass."

    "Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you," the lawyer said. They all entered the car, and once underway, one of the children turned to the lawyer and said, "Good sir, you are too kind; thank you for taking all of us with you."

    The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it. You'll really love my place. My grass is almost a foot high"

    They agreed to $20 million cash and $45 million in stock that was worth $36 a share at the time. Now the company is worth $50 billion and they want to back out. Was it really their idea? How much different is the concept then myspace is/was. Zuckerberg wrote the program and made facebook what it is. Not saying what he did was right but these two jack wagons didn't have to take the offer.
