And since you’ve probably never seen a Harvard commencement address, it’s OK if you assumed the seats are always filled with upper crust, John D. Rockefeller and John Jacob Astor types. You know, the oil magnates and railroad tycoons who helped the university reach a billion-dollar endowment.
Which, LOL, fun, guys, but it’s just another college. It’s not anything like that.
Just pop into the livestream of the speech and see—

Is this really what Harvard looks like?
Holy crap, Harvard really is nothing more than the 19th-century billionaires who pillaged this country for their own gain. (And animals in top hats. No, really, those are everywhere.)

And while the internet wasn’t busy mocking the people who have it much, much, so much better than us, they took solace in the fact that the rinky-dinky invention of Zuckerberg’s barely even worked.
