A bit more detail (I had to run off to a dentist appointment earlier):

The URL you posted is to a server named
"fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net". It's an https link, so SSL is used
for the connection. The SSL cert returned by the server was specifically
generated for a server named "a248.e.akamai.net", which isn't even in
the same second-level domain (it's in "akamaihd.net", not
"akamai.net"). This sort of name mismatch is quite common on websites
administered by inexperienced or non-technical people, but I have every reason
to expect Akamai to get these things right The First Time, and they apparently
failed here. (I'll suggest that it might actually Facebook's failure; Akamai
doesn't do all the management of their hosted server pools.)

This seems like a pretty good example of an objectionable mismatch, so I'll
repeat: if you load the original link and your browser doesn't report a
certificate problem, then your browser seems to be operating insecurely, and you
should take a closer look at what it's doing.

It's possible that a non-objecting browser already complained about this
certificate, long, long ago, and you (or someone) told it at the time to trust
the server even though the certificate wasn't valid. If this is the case, all
seems to be well; but it never hurts to re-examine your security policies and
settings...

Milton Friedman???
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, April 26 2013 @ 02:35 AM EDT
Milton Friedman is considered a founding father of the current neo-liberal
greed-is-good regime, that has managed to wreck the world economy and sucked
trillions out of societies.
When Milton Friedman talks of Freedom, he is referring to economic freedom from
oversight and regulation.
When Milton Friedman talks of Equality, he is referring to financial equality
and the right of the rich and the privileged to be so without a social
consciousness.
