1. Mark is colour-blind!
Yes, Mark, one of the great billionaires and visionaries of this era, is colour-blind, at least partially. He totally confuses the colors green and red (imagine what problems he´ll have at traffic lights hehe), and maybe that´s one of the reasons why Facebook is blue.
2. Speaks 5 languages
