For a guy who became a billionaire when he was barely old enough to drink, Facebook mogul Mark Zuckerberg is fairly normal. He’s a little awkward and he dresses like it’s always laundry day, but nothing too out of hand. Until 2011, when he suddenly announced that he would no longer be eating meat unless he killed it with his own two hands. Although he claimed to be “basically a vegetarian”, he didn’t hesitate to inform friends (via Facebook, naturally) in May of 2011 “I just killed a pig and a goat.” Since 2012, the bloodthirsty billionaire has gone back to acquiring his steaks the old fashioned way… at the store.

7. Jeff Bezos

Founder and CEO of Amazon.com, Bezos is worth over $20 billion dollars. From his youth, he showed a mechanical genius, earning a degree in electrical engineering and computer science. For over a decade, he has worked on privatizing spaceflight through his company Blue Origin. Last month, Bezos and an ocean exploring team recovered engines from the historic Apollo 11 mission on the bottom of the Atlantic. He is also responsible for $42 million in funding for the Clock of the Long Now, a clock designed to run for 10,000 years, to be buried deep in the Sierra Diablo Mountains on his land. By contrast, the Great Pyramid of Giza is less than 5,000 years old.
