Mark Zuckerberg is an idiot, in many ways, when making such a remark.

I got my last job as a programmer analyst at age 65 and worked to age 70 and a quarter. I was too cheap to withdraw from my IRA at the same tax rate as the money that went in. That's why I retired.

Someone asked, “How did you get the job at age 65?”

Me, “The first 12 people failed the programming test. I completed it in half the allotted time and pointed out that there were 3 solutions to each problem. I used the brute-force one since we weren’t keeping the code.”

A couple years later, I was out for surgery. They flew my backup in from London to Houston.

One department head sent me this email when I got back, “I didn’t know how spoiled I was until you were out!”

Always beware of stereotypes.

==> Stereotypes and Prejudices Everywhere

--> News stories propagate these stereotypes and prejudices — but really, they are everywhere. You may not even be aware of those within yourself.
