I think our dear Fuckerberg has gotten a bit more paranoid over the years.

Because every single Facebook employee fantasizes about this scene from The Social Network…

Historians will mark the beginning of the end when he used the chute twice in one week in reaction to false alarms.

“Consider yourselves unfriended!” would be a good exit line, but you’d only get the one chance.

I don’t think this is as weird as when the Post Office Mafia came out in force for that one article:

Actually, I recall now that there were two factions, a “the post office must be destroyed” group and a “fellow postal carriers, hear my tales” group.

At least the darkest timeline has some bizarreness to keep us on our toes.

Just remember disgruntled employees - it’s hot OIL.

I think I’m even more creeped out by how he has to surveil and keep his thumb on even his highest level employees.

“Instead, his regular desk is on the floor of Facebook’s open-plan office, just like everyone”

Dude - you’re the CEO. Not the hall monitor.

The article seems like pure speculation, although I do find it interesting that they were planning for the terrorist car bomb scenario, but only to the degree that the the CEO would be vulnerable to a moderate size one.

That would make for a nice youtube series-- Austin Powers followed by the scene it’s directly referencing. Alas, it seems the youtuber uploaded only one such video.

Looks like he omitted to set the privacy option for the existence of the passageway to “Only Me”.

This story I only partly true. There is indeed an escape chute. But it leads to his place of birth, not the garage.

Mark Zuckerberg has “secret escape passageway”

Guy’s a little paranoid, but why…

I’m conflicted. I mean, Mark Zuckerberg is a corporate asshole, yes. And Facebook is a horrible cancer on the Internet, yes. But having an escape slide is also pretty awesome. I guess even rich monsters can have cool toys every once in a while.

I can’t really find fault with this. If I had his money I’d have secret rooms and corridors too.

I’m having this comical vision of Zuckerberg activating his “panic chute” and riding an emergency twisty slide down several floors just to meet two goons waiting at the bottom with an open sack.

When we bought Exodus out of bankruptcy, during the DotBust, the former CEO Ellen’s panic room and stuff were all favorite things for folks to go laugh at. I think corporate security pushes execs into that madness.

I wonder if Elon has an escape rocket.
