Mark’s Zucker Iceberg

12 Jun

Aaron Sorkin returns to tell the story of Mark Zuckerberg taking on the Winklevi in this 12 part sequel to the Social Network that asks what if  Mark Zuckerberg  tried to prevent rising sea levels by spending all of his money on sugar and making it into massive icebergs to offset the melting icecaps?  The consequences are tragic as it becomes apparent that not only is the issue more icecap than iceberg, but in a dramatic twist in the final episode – sugar is soluble. Consequentially water levels actually rise more than they would have done without the intervention of Zuckerberg. The Winklevi stop claiming it was all their idea and instead row around Zuckerberg’s now flooded mansion gloating and jeering.
