    So basically they want you to work 20 hour days for shit pay while they give you worthless stock options.

    No, I wouldn't answer that ad.

    I sway away from "start-up" job advertisements.

    but they are well capitalized, that means there is a big chance it'll be a huuge success. How do you know 10 years from now the site won't be known to every person in the country?

    If you don't know who Jeff Bezos is, you can see his struggling startup at www.amazon.com

    with $8 Billion I think he'd have enough money to pay real salaries for a project if he actually thought it had potential

    Well it's pretty retarded to compare jobs now. If I saw a job claiming to "revolutionize commerce" today, I'd start laughing. Back in 1994, that would be much more likely to capture my attention.
