    Dear Facebook,

    PWNED!!!

    • chappy

      the company is valued at just shy of $100 Billion… don't think it's hurting them much

      • ruslruslrusl

        You're bad at math. $200 million is still $200 million. It's true that they couldn't have predicted the shares being valued so high. Whether or not $200 million would adversely affect their bottom line is not the point. The fact that they, in effect, paid $200 million for graffiti wall art is the point.

    For a site so intent on viewing graffiti as "street art" and purchasing and selling Banksy related items they sure sound demeaning when talking about Mr. Choe.

    Chive, will you be interested in having a bunch of stick men with penises and stick women with boobs on your wall? I'll do it for $50.

    He was given stock WAY BACK WHEN you morons. He sat on it and it ballooned into what it is now. I swear you have to spoon feed some of these dumbasses the information so they’ll get it…

    • llort

      what i dont get is, who paid him $200 million dollars for that

      • ruslruslrusl

        No one. It's based on the value of the IPO. When FB goes public, he'll be able to sell those shares for cash on the market. The estimated value of his total allotment of shares (were he to sell them all) is $200 million. He will likely sell a handful for cash and sit on the rest and wait for them to appreciate in value even further. His gain from this decision doesn't stop at the IPO since the value of FB stock will more than likely rise even higher.

          So how did they afford the $200 million? I don't get it…

          • plezexplan

            What does that even mean?

            • Nishtai

              Dude, Zuckerberg gave that guy a lot of stocks as payment, probably when they weren't worth the paper they are printed onto. Now, Facebook is a fucking giant and those same shares are worth $200M. Do YOU get it now?

              • I Like Turtles

                So can I print those same $200M shares on my printer?

              • Dave

                wut r stocks?

                • CB!

                  Dave and Turtle Boy…please go play in traffic.

    so from what i learn from "the social network"
    Eduardo Saverin's share were taken away from him to make room for new investors and that is why he sued zuckerberg… is this what zuckerberg used Eduardo Saverin shares for?
