    No offense but...

    I'll take pictures of topless women over topless men, thanks.

    Putin maybe an evil SOB... but he looks like such a badass in that picture.

      Joking, yes?

      OK everything is comparative, and this is an IT site, but if Putin looks tough in that photo I ought to be auditioning for Chippendales.

      To wit - gobs of fat round the rib cage, poor muscle tone in the shoulders and especially in the forearms.

      He AIN'T no Popeye.

      On the other hand, he would look badass if that was a Les Paul, he had front teeth missing and was wearing a headband.

        Re: Joking, yes?

        Be fair, the guy IS nearly 60. I'd like to see more 60 year olds looking generally that fit (disclaimer - I'm talking "fit" in a health sense not a fanciable sense, personally wouldn't touch him with someone else's bargepole).

        Plus that isn't fat round the ribs, fat doesn't gather in stringy chunks like that. More likely loose skin from losing excess weight

    Vladimir has always looked ready to wrestle bears and win.

    I can't say that for any UK politician other than Boris Johnson, who may indeed be part bear himself.

      It's The Register so you can expect:

      * Science

      * Computers

      * The occasional hint of either boobies or catastrophically huge explosions. Either is good.

      Nope - I'm struggling to see the homophobia, even if it is latent. Actually all sounds quite polite considering it's an article about Zuckerberg on the Reg!

      As Putin is ex KGB and keeps himself seriously fit -not many 60 year olds look physically as well (*)- I don't think Zuck even stood a chance if Putin was blindfolded and only allowed to use one arm.

      (*) My next door neighbour is an exception at 72 years, but he used to do fencing at world level..

        Well yes, a relatively low-ranking field agent about twenty years ago.

    Will !GooMyFaceYouMSTwit muck-a-mucks actually understand the world-wide invasion of personal privacy that they are promoting? My guess is that they will just laugh it off instead of learning from it ...

    Overshare?

    Is the a word/concept that Facebook has given the world? Are there more?

    And while I'm asking (no, I don't do facebook), is the word for trying to outdo each other with inspirational sayings superimposed in pretty pictures? This is what seems to be going on when I look over my wife's shoulder (she facebooks). Assault and Babbling?

    This is nothing more than pix of the annual IT and Software Nerds in the Bay Area summer mixer. (There aren't even two females in attendance because they know better than to party with computer guys when they're stoned.)

    Obviously the Nerds don't care if chicks are there or not. As long as Mr.Tambourine man is there and they can do the shirtless Orgy Porgy for hours, they're happy.

    Somebody photo shopped Mark Zuckerberg's head onto some 5' 4" guy's body.

    And I believed it. Duh.

    "Mark Zuckerberg should manage his Privacy Settings"

    Great job Mr. Anonymous. Except that your privacy settings can't stop someone posting a photo of you, they can only control whether you can be tagged and who can see that you're tagged.

  24. adam payne

    Facebook takes no responsibility for your privacy settings! Shouldn't he know that?
