  3. just like a KFC whistleblower confesses “ppl will love it if our food is more greasy”. i dont get why its so controversy 🤦🏻‍. i use FB and i know what im getting🤷🏻‍♂

    1. What you’re saying is very different from this. Greasy food from KFC or McDonald uses red and yellow to make your brain think you’re hungry/need food. This is appearance-based strategy. Facebook is similar to tobacco because it promotes production of dopamine. That’s why you like the pings, dings, beep, on your phone everytime you get a notification. Addiction to alcohol does the same.

  4. did they have a recess at least? I would’t be able to stand after sitting for over 3 hours. wow
