    I saw a "live" performance of "This American Life" at a local theater a couple weeks ago. It was 2 hours long and worth every penny of the $18 admission fee.

    My favorite segment was the one where they interviewed a man who bought a storage locker and found over 100,000 photographic negatives, and put some of the pictures on Flickr just to see if anyone recognized people in the pictures, and not only was one of those people interviewed, user feedback told him that he had stumbled onto a person who was a genius.

    I also liked the one with Terry Gross as an action movie hero. I doubt if that one, titled "Fresh Air 2", will be aired on the radio because you have to watch it to appreciate it.

    You got that RIGHT!!!! :D I would marry that guy in a heartbeat! LOL...too bad he is already taken...god, that's one lucky bitch.

    She isn't very pretty at all though...I wonder what Mark was thinking...he could find someone that look like Kim Kardashian for what he is worth! :laugh:

    The weridest thing was me and like 3 of my friends friend request Mark Zuckenberg a few years ago on Facebook. He deny all my friends' friend requests, but he accepted my friend request on Facebook! LOL...I thought that was kinda funny.

    I was friends with Mark Zuckenberg on facebook for like a year or two. :) I just feel kind of special since I have heard that he denies most of his friend request on Facebook. He only has like 700 friends on Facebook.

    I thought she was pretty attractive. Plus she's going to be a doctor and men seem to dig Asian women (good for you, right?).

    Here's a thought... maybe Mark Z loves his wife for her mind and personality and isn't as worried about looks. Although she is hardly unattractive. Geez...

    Damn so that ugly chick gets 8 billion dollars if she gets a divorce? Do you know how many Louis Vuitton bags and Christian Louboutin heels I can buy with that????

    God, life is so unfair....but I think I still rather die than look like that. LOL....

    Jesus. Mark Zuckerberg is not exactly a winner himself. He's ugly and he's known for being one of the biggest douches on the planet. And I'm sure they had a pre-nup so if they divorce she gets nothing. I'd rather be poor and happy than be married to him.

    And I think she's pretty. Get a grip.

    ITA! Bill Gates' wife is very attractive too, but certainly no supermodel. IMNSHO, her work with the Gates Foundation makes her a beautiful person in itself.

    People should get married because they love each other, not as an arm ornament or eye candy.

    Well, have to agree with SHC for once that Zuckerberg's wife is very so so looking. It's like asking an American where to get good Chinese food, or a Chinese about good burgers. Not that they need glasses, just a combo of different tastes and lack of experience. But whatever floats the boat for that person, just leave well enough alone.

    Also, I think any girl who can spot a winner while he's nobody and strick it out deserves half. Although, I grinned when found out Zuckerburg's wedding was the day after the IPO. The guy definitely didn't let love get in the way of prudence.

    They met long before he had money. She completed med school and is starting residency.

    How can that be true? He is rich, there is no need to finish med school. Maybe she is afraid that he will "trade up" so she is doing a residency as a backup? Only thing that makes any sense.

    SHC... you wonder why you have trouble with relationships and boys. You might consider whether you have your priorities out of whack. Looks are not everything. Long term, they probably aren't even important.

    Compare to other Asian women she is at the bottom 25% at best.

    I am terrible b/c I don't find someone attractive? So in order for me to be a good person I must think everyone is hot? :laugh: I don't get the logical here. :rolleyes:

    I wasn't hating I was just confused as to how 16 billion dollars could only buy that...If he was dating a supermodel than I would be like okay cool.

    That's why I always use this on my Louboutins....;)

    And Zuckerbergs wife is a Harvard grad who just graduated from UCSF Med school. She is a pleasant looking girl and a brain to surpass most. She can probably carry on a conversation with zuckerberg. Much rather see this than see him with a fake gold digging bimbo with bought breasts and spray on tan.

    So true and inspiring. Some folks are just jealous.They have to know he had met her before becoming a multibillionaire. She may not be the best looking girl, but she has a brain.

    And brains should always win over beauty. Beauty fades but intelligence is forever. And anyway with women who are beautiful but have no substance, they'll get cheated on when the man opts for an average looking woman with substance and the same goes for the other way. But Zuckerberg's wife is pretty to me especially since she is still continuing her education and not relying on his money.

    She's far from ugly. Her intelligence makes her quite hot to me. She probably has good personality too.

    Agreed! Shiny and pretty are only entertaining for so long, but the sweet ones that are interesting keep me around. Also, SHC1984, sometimes the hottest women are the ones who know they're hot but usually like to pretend they haven't noticed. ;) Especially when they know they got us beat, but tell us how great we look anyway. :D

    Your offer, from the prospective of a guy like me, is plain and simple a
    crappy business deal. Here's why. Cutting through all the B.S., what you
    suggest is a simple trade: you bring your looks to the party and I bring
    my money. Fine, simple. But here's the rub, your looks will fade and my
    money will likely continue into perpetuity...in fact, it is very likely
    that my income increases but it is an absolute certainty that you won't
    be getting any more beautiful!

    So, in economic terms you are a depreciating asset and I am an earning
    asset. Not only are you a depreciating asset, your depreciation
    accelerates! Let me explain, you're 25 now and will likely stay pretty
    hot for the next 5 years, but less so each year. Then the fade begins in
    earnest. By 35 stick a fork in you!

    So in Wall Street terms, we would call you a trading position, not a buy
    and hold...hence the rub...marriage. It doesn't make good business sense
    to "buy you" (which is what you're asking) so I'd rather lease. In case
    you think I'm being cruel, I would say the following. If my money were
    to go away, so would you, so when your beauty fades I need an out. It's
    as simple as that. So a deal that makes sense is dating, not marriage.

    Separately, I was taught early in my career about efficient markets. So,
    I wonder why a girl as "articulate, classy and spectacularly beautiful"
    as you has been unable to find your sugar daddy. I find it hard to
    believe that if you are as gorgeous as you say you are that the $500K
    hasn't found you, if not only for a tryout.

    By the way, you could always find a way to make your own money and then
    we wouldn't need to have this difficult conversation.

    With all that said, I must say you're going about it the right way.
    Classic "pump and dump."
    I hope this is helpful, and if you want to enter into some sort of
    lease, let me know.

    Never heard dating or marrying for money explained in that way and that's so true that a beautiful woman would be a depreciating item over time. But is SHC looking for an ideal mate who'll stay with her through the hard times or just pay for the materiastic things she desires?
