Facebook CEO promises to eat only what he kills

As you may have already guessed, being the world's youngest billionaire has its advantages. One of those is the ability to set a lofty goal for yourself each year and almost certainly being able to achieve it. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has given himself these challenges every year, which have ranged from learning Chinese to dressing up in a suit and tie every day. This year his task is a bit heavier: he plans to only eat meat from animals he himself has killed.

The 27-year-old entrepreneur insists that he's not doing it out of bloodlust either, he simply wants to take a greater role in his eating habits. The first step of his year-long journey was dispatching a lobster. He then moved up to larger prey, including chickens, pigs, and goats. And he's not going about this challenge alone, he has the help of popular California chef Jesse Cool, who has provided a guiding hand in the job of humanely turning various animals into dinner. "He cut the throat of the goat with a knife, which is the most kind way to do it," notes the award-winning cuisine queen.

After slaughtering each animal Zuckerberg sends the meat off for processing, and upon return, he and his girlfriend cook it themselves, making sure to use every last bit. And during his numerous restaurant trips (being CEO of a huge corporation means frequent lunch meetings), Zuckerberg doesn't forget his pledge; if he can't be the one to provide the meat, he orders strictly off the vegetarian menu.
