"It’s probably important to remember that Mark is 19 when he does this. When Mark says, “I’m in” at the Porcellian, he means it. And he also means it when he says, “Do you see any of your code? No? Then you didn’t have anything to do with it.” He also means that. It’s what happens when you have never done business before. It’s happened to me, too. When I was 17, I agreed to write a screenplay with a good friend of mine, and then he went off to camp, and I wrote the whole thing. And I agreed to write it with him, but I also was right when I told him he didn’t write a word of it. And I’m still good friends with him, so I don’t want to say too much, but that’s kind of what Mark does. Mark makes a mistake, he makes a business mistake. It’s a youthful mistake. It just so happens that it turned into a $30 billion company; my script is probably lighting the fire in some agent’s assistant’s house somewhere." Jesse Eisenberg, TSN Commentary

I'm young but I know what I want. This isn't that hard, I'm all grown up already and have everything figured out.

Well, this is a little harder than I thought. School is almost ending. What am I going to do with my life?
