Where Does Mark Zuckerberg Live? Now and Then

Everybody knows that Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t have a refined sartorial sense, and that, for a millionaire, he lives kind of modestly; last year, for example, he revealed that all of his homes in the Silicon Valley he rented and found on Craigslist. Tyler Winklevoss, the man engaged in a legal battle with Zuckerberg over Facebook, is quoted as saying Zuckerberg is “the poorest rich person I’ve ever seen in my life.” Zuckerberg is even regularly seen in public places (apparently once you’ve attained a certain level of wealth and status, going out in public is actually a form of modesty).

“Salt water pool? I live in a f**king replica of 16th Century Japanese emperor.” – Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle

But now, finally, Zuckerberg is buying a home for the first time in Palo Alto. So what’s it like? The $7 million, 5,000 square feet house is about a ten minute drive from what will soon be Facebook’s new headquarters in Menlo Park. The home includes a saltwater pool, five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and a music alcove. This might sound decadent, but apparently the home is still modest in comparison to other Silicon Valley millionaires, like Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle, who has an 8,000 square-foot home based on the home of a 16th Century Japanese emperor.

      To be honest, after a certain point, it becomes unnecessary to have so much room. Because then you're struggling and trying so hard to figure out what the fuck to do with all the rooms. Bedroom(s)? Check. Laundry room? Check. Game room? Check. Library? Check. Office? Check. And then you start getting into the ridiculous rooms, like “Pictures of Me Room,” “BDSM Dungeon Room,” “Carbonated Drinks Room,” “Non-Carbonated Drinks Room,” etc. I've put way too much thought into it already, if I actually had a house that big I'd lose my mind.

      I cannot believe I cannot get on Facebook any longer. I called a 1-800 number and they told me I would have to pay 40-90 dollars to talk to a technician. 40-90 DOLLARS!!!! Are you kidding me!!! I have tried and tried and tried to get back on Facebook to no avail! I even tried to make a new account thinking it would tell me I already existed….it did not! Now, that is all I can get to…is my new account. It won’t even let me get into my old one. Is there nobody who can help me??? I cannot afford 40-90 dollars just to get back on FB.
      Signed.
