After reading this all I can think of is the line at the end of 21 Jumpstreet remake: "you peaked in highschool."
like he needs a job
Was he ever employable?
Was he ever employable?
Not sure on that question but the other clearly is no, he basically never needed a job. And his commentary is so misguided it's amazing he even said it with such arrogance in the day.

Ahahahahahahaha this is funny as hell
So a billionaire is unemployed? Oh boo hoo.
I'll give you 2 reasons:
1) Before 30 (or until you have to earn enough to pay a mortgage or rent on something more than a hovel), you've got less to lose, so you can bet big. you also...
2) Don't know how much you've got to lose. Death is an abstraction, and even not-so-permanent consequences, like jail time, loss of reputation and so forth, aren't quite real.
BONUS THIRD REASON!!!: In your teens and twenties, you still have a kid's perception of time. Think how long high school seemed. If you're over thirty, think how long ago the BP oil spill started (April 20, 2010). Four years in both cases. Time really starts to fly in your 20's, and then you end up like me, 56 years old, wondering where the time went....
people need to understand being worth a billion and having a billion. these billionares can stop hunger in 10 small cities alone. why dont they? they dont have the money to do so.
"he’ll probably just shrug and go back to being an insanely successful billionaire."
Aint that the truth.
Perception of everything changes all the time and therefore the younger you are the smarter you think you are as your actual perception of reality is incomplete. As you gain age and or time your perception of reality becomes more complete and therefore you actually understand what it is. I was talking with someone about life and our teenagers perception of things yesterday and in the end you think you know everything when you get to high school and you may know more but in reality it is nothing because you perceive life in the wrong way or at least many do. Then we you get to college age you are pretty sure you have it all figured out when in reality it is still not true. However; you never truly recognize this until you get older.
This came up as my daughter attending college was offered a internship this summer with the FBI as an executive assistant basically and did not take it because in her eyes she would be working for big government etc. and that is not where she "Wants" to be in life. I commented on the value of that opportunity but she does not understand it's value in any way. Either way I did not make a big deal of it but am pretty sure at some point in her life she will probably regret even if just for a small amount of time the making of that decision. She does not as I would say Mr. Zuckerburg did not fully understand what he was saying then but greater understand it now. As far as it goes though it is also relatively pointless is it not? You live you learn!
He can basically retire, right now, and live off his bank account interest. I don't think being unemployable is on his mind atm!
