Why it's so hard to #DeleteFacebook

So much news, so little time. We'll help. #TheShortList
Why it's so hard to #DeleteFacebook
Facebook's Menlo Park headquarters.

Clinging to Facebook? You're not alone. 

Facebook users have piled onto the campaign #DeleteFacebook , threatening to desert their Facebook accounts to protest the social media giant's mishandling of personal information. Will people really #DeleteFacebook? We doubt it. The reason? People around the world can't do without Facebook. Severing that digital lifeline to family and friends and abandoning their extensive archive of treasured moments is unthinkable. For some users, a more reasonable solution is a Facebook detox, or break. For others, it might be time to just make peace with Big Brother. More Facebook news:

Facebook will update its privacy settings to make it easier for you to control what you share.
Playboy left Facebook, one of the more high profile departures amid public backlash against leaks of users' data.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will testify before Congress about Cambridge Analytica.

Head, shoulders, knees and ... interstitium?

Congratulations, you've got a brand new organ. Name? Interstitium. Function? Possibly shock absorption. This newly discovered piece of the human body is a series of interconnected, fluid-filled compartments. Scientists found it using a new imaging technique, according to a study in Scientific ReportsFun fact: It's among the body's largest organs. Mind = blown. This marks the second time in as many years scientists have found a new piece of the human body: Last year it was the mesentery, which connects the intestine to the abdomen.


We wrote Tuesday about former Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens' opinion piece in The New York Times for repealing the Second Amendment, the constitutional right used to defend gun ownership. President Trump, who received support from the National Rifle Association and other gun rights groups, tweeted Wednesday : "As much as Democrats would like to see this happen, and despite the words yesterday of former Supreme Court Justice Stevens, NO WAY." What Trump hasn't been tweeting about? Stormy Daniels. More from Washington:

Stormy Daniels' lawyer wants to depose Trump over "hush agreement."
The White House rebuffed a report that President Trump planned to "go after" Amazon.
