Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg wanted a little privacy around his Palo Alto, CA home. He heard that the property next door was for sale, and that a developer was planning to big a big mansion and market it as "Next Door To Mark Zuckerberg!" So, Zuckerberg did what any billionaire would do: he bought it. And the house behind him. And another. And another. In fact, he bought ALL the homes around him for around 30 million dollars. All for a little privacy.
I don't know about you, but when I want some privacy to, say, run naked around the house, I just do what other classy people do: I put aluminum foil in the windows.
