    So someone at facebook thinks 7 days is a nice round number, just enough time to allow them reason to promote it, not enough time for the average facebook user to find it.

    Maybe the 99% protesting on wall street can create an offshoot called the 31% ?

      Yea, actually, that’s incredibly math-y, isn’t it? Which means that we should check with the beauty pageant contest nominees, who were asked whether math should be taught in school. Watch the video: I particularly love Ms. Vermont and Ms. Hawaii. They should team up to help Facebook with their math issues.
