EvilEeyore: Yes, but thanks to Mark I now know my 3rd cousin whom I've met once in my entire 56 years of life is out of cheese and is going to the store later today to get some more before the big game. That's priceless information and it's all thanks to Mark. 3 billion is small reward for that.
DubyaHater: Meh. The rich get richer and the working class/working poor stay stagnant. It's only been this way since the dawn of time. I was just paid yesterday, so I can at least pay my gas bill. These are the cards I was dealt. I'm not smart enough to develop something like Facebook
albert71292: If you share this post with your friends, Mark Zuckerberg will give you $1 million.
jjorsett: You haven't "made" anything until you sell. My house increased 10% in value last year and I don't go around claiming I made money on it. The test for when you've made money is when the IRS wants taxes on it.
BalugaJoe: Reprehensible person.Meanwhile the Winklevoss twins lost 1.5 million in the fake bitcoin company.
Chevello: BalugaJoe: Reprehensible person.Meanwhile the Winklevoss twins lost 1.5 million in the fake bitcoin company.That $3B doesn't come from nowhere, you know.
lawboy87: Actually No. He hasn't "made" a single dime on the rising of the stock price. He will only "make" money when he sells that amount of stock at the new price.Learn a lesson from Michael Saylor, if you're counting youself as among the multi-billionaires club, you better only do so AFTER you've exchanged your stock for cash. Otherwise, your supposed "billions of $'s" of stock could actually drop to a small fraction of that in just a few short days. (Saylor's company Microstrategy had a price so high after it's IPO that Saylor had a net worth of $15 Billion on paper, today the entire company has a market cap of only 1.4 Billion, less than 2% of it's highest value.)Now, if you want to say his "assets" have increased by $3 Billion, that is another thing, so long as you acknowledge those assets aren't "fixed" by any means and could just as easily disappear as magically as they appeared.
E_Henry_Thripshaws_Disease: plus he's married to a hot Chinese doctor, pleasing his Jewish mother
John Buck 41: Smartest post in this thread.
