Thilo Weichart may not be the dumbest man on the planet, but he'd be up there in any competition. He's scared by the - wait for it - Facebook "like" button:

Weichert argues that data from any user who clicks the ‘like’ button including those who are not Facebook users (which seems to be the crux of the problem for Weichert) is immediately transmitted to a server in the United States. Weichert told German newspaper FAZ that his concern is that “Facebook can track every click on a site, how long I’m there, what I’m interested in.”

Here's a hot tip for this clown: try not clicking on the button. There, I fixed it.
