Fifty percent! There's no half measures involved in this.

A New York businessman has been charged with trying to defraud Facebook by claiming he was owed a 50% share of the social media company, prosecutors say.

Paul Ceglia is accused of fabricating and destroying evidence in a lawsuit asking for half-ownership of the firm.

Arrested at his home in Wellsville, New York, Mr Ceglia was due in court on Friday afternoon.

US Attorney Preet Bharara said the entrepreneur had been chasing a "quick payday based on a blatant forgery".New York Man Charged With Attempting To Defraud Facebook [bbc.co.uk]

But Mr Zuckerberg said he had not yet conceived at the time of the social network.

Implying that he has since succeeded? Mercy. I'd have expected the newspapers to be full of it.

It's not really a typo. Just an exceptionally infelicitous grammatical construct.
