Ex-Harvard president: The Winklevoss twins are ***holes For anyone who has seen the critically acclaimed 'The Social Network,' it was very clear what former Harvard president Larry Summers thought of the Winklevoss twins (it wasn't good).
Today, Summers reaffirmed his view, calling the twins a pair of "***holes."

Says Summers:

Rarely, have I encountered such swagger, and I tried to respond in kind. One of the things you learn as a college president is that if an undergraduate is wearing a tie and jacket on Thursday afternoon at three o'clock, there are two possibilities. One is that they're looking for a job and have an interview; the other is that they are an a**hole. This was the latter case.


Along with Harvard classmate, Divya Narendra, the twins filed suit against Facebook in 2004 alleging that the concept for Facebook was stolen from them and their early work on HarvardConnection.

In 2008, Facebook agreed to settle, giving the trio a deal worth $65 million ($45 million in stock), with the majority in Facebook stock.

With Facebook now valued at $100 billion the Winklevoss/Narendra shares in Facebook are worth just over $300 million, an appreciation of 660 percent in just three years.

Is there really any more rectal cream or disproportionately dysfunctional erectile tissue jokes out there that can made about these two that hasn't already been stated?

Other than sunk to their chins in pig shit in the back woods of a Myanmar prison camp, only to be pulled out ever four hours & have the soles of their feet struck for 30 minutes, would these 2 figure out the value of what they already have.

Who the hell am I kidding... No they wouldn't. I don't even think a week of 110% sensory & sleep deprivation would do them any good. They're already under the misconception that they're being tortured, so anything else would just fuel the fire.

I had an affluent asshat like them when I was growing up. Then one day I decided to make him my 'project'. Guy couldn't pour piss from a boot despite the instructions being on the heel now. Cruel & heartless? Possibly. But I decided he wasn't going to grow up any further to mess anybody else's life up like these 2 idiots will/are. Like these two, he thought money allotted him control over people & their lives. In my case I made damn sure to prove otherwise.
