Unbearable Incongruity [Mar. 29th, 2011|07:50 pm]

My walks frequently take me past Facebook's offices—they're just a few blocks from where I live. College terrace is a thoroughly residential neighborhood that I can only describe as a rustic paradise. Standing in the midst of these cute-as-a-button homes and lush vegetation, where time seems to have come to a stop and the only sound is that of crickets chirping, I stare transfixed at the innocuous building that doesn't bear a corporate logo or any signage at all for that matter, except for the street number "1601." My brain refuses to grasp the fact that lurking inside is a fiercely competitive corporate titan dead set on a path to world domination.
