Facebook is broken, the world weeps as addicted farmers all over the world lose crops, world hunger ensues, and life as we know it…

Oh never mind, Farmville is not that important. Neither is Facebook. In related news in the last hour, US productivity is up 200%, the sun actually exists, and we don’t really care if you “like” this post or not.

Luckily, for now, Twitter is still up so we can all discuss Facebook being down.

Welcome to the new Matrix!
