Mark Zuckerberg's new challenge: Eating only what he kills (and yes, we do mean literally...) - Postcards

Very cool thing he is doing here. I hope some day to have the room to do this myself. I think nothing but good things can come from a person wanting to be more invovled in the process that it takes to get food on your table.

*discuss*


I love some of the comments to this article, BTW. "Isn't that the first step a serial killer takes? 'torturing' and killing animals?'" :rolleyes: LOL
I agree with you :) I think it would be great. We have enough land we could raise some animals for food, but no way would that go down with my parents. No. Way. lol

I got laying hens and forbade them from naming them because these ones are already in their second cycle. My mom protested... my dad calls them "the girls" now. Great lol.

But anyways it would be neat to have a farm later on.

My only complaint with Zuckerberg is that I think he should be butchering them himself as well :p but whatever. Good for him.

Couldn't agree more with the concept. If he weren't such a douche canoe I would like him for it too!

Could you please elaborate on the 'douche canoe' part? I ask because I know very little about the guy. Only that he seems to be a good businessman and now this. If you know something about him I don't, I might just UNlike his butt. LOL

I don't really do the Facebook thing, generally speaking. Most of my exposure to Facebook is keeping my clients employees off Facebook during working hours. LOL

I think a lot of people get that impression from the movie, but fail to realize that it was a movie written to entertain people and only Mark Zuckerberg knows what is fact and what is fiction. Or I'm way off base and you have another reason to base your opinion.

I really like this concept he has, no better way to appreciate your food than follow it from living being to your plate. I know I wouldn't have the discipline to do this, and am impressed that he does.

I love the idea. Too many people in this country are only ok with eating meat if it comes in neatly packaged boxes. My mother is one of those people. She just can't eat anything she's seen alive at one point. I'm ok with this but I have no illusions of how life begins and ends for a farm animal. I like having no illusions about this, I want to understand a life ended so I can eat. I want to know that animal had a good life.

He DID screw his friends over hugely. They would not have had to sign non-disclosure forms and received such massive settlement if he had not. Douche canoe.

Just a comment on the settlement and NDA. I have no idea, nor do I care, what sort of guy Zuckerberg is, or what he did or did not do to his friends. To the extent I pay any attention to the man at all, I'm not generally impressed, and this slaughtering food thing, though good in principle, strikes me as a stunt.

That said, however, the fact that there was a massive settlement and a NDA proves nothing other than that there was a nasty disagreement that involves a lot of money that neither side was sure it could win (or, alternatively, thought it would be insanely expensive and time consuming to win). Considering that my understanding is that a lot of the facts involved things that people did or did not do or say, that's not at all surprising. Though I have no doubt Mr. Zuckerberg could have been more generous to his friends, the fact that there was a huge settlement and NDA proves nothing at all, other then that there was a dispute and he wanted it over and out of the press . . . which could happen even if he was entirely innocent.

I think it would have liked it better if he would promote humanly raised cattle, etc. instead of only eating what he kills. And I don't mean that in the Peta way, so don't even start. I believe thag this mass production of meat that ends neatly wrapped in a super market is just horrible. People want the cheapest meat they can get and don't care where it comes from. Not a lot of people would be able to hunt their own food, but a lot more people would be able to go get some free-range meat from a local farm.

I agree with Jules, I also know a guy who had an internship with him and said he's EXACTLY how he was portrayed in the Social Network, rude, egotistical, and unsympathetic.

That said, I wish I could only eat stuff I kill.

many men w/great accomplishments (especially the acumulation of great wealth from apparently trivial matters) are reputed to be a-holes. alot is simply that the media chooses to air the complainers. i've met both presidents Bush, in person w/o a script someone else wrote, both were intelligent, articulate & seemed very capable as well as being pleasant to be around. OTH both Clintons were EXTREMELY rude, unpleasant & personally disrespectful toward the military personnel at the White House, Camp David, & on both Air Force One & Marine One, but they come across very charming on TV.
so while i respect this effort, i'll reserve judgement on Zuckerburg untl i meet him.

This puts him above Gates or Jobs in my book.

Bored rich guy probably. Maybe he and Ted Nugent will run for Pres next year.

At least he hasn't pulled a Stallman by eating toe cheese on stage at a conference.
