    Those motherfuckers can go fuck themselves. Help stop animal kill shelters. These rich assholes just want praise. Pets are better than humans.

    I think Bill Gates should spend his money trying to advance space travel and advanced tech stuff like Elon Musk instead of wasting it on African children.

    Animal shelters? There are plenty of desperate hurting people in this country that could use that help.
    Asshole made his billions in this country, bout time he gave some of it back.

    There's no need to judge someone who chooses to help animals. They need help too. If animals are who you choose to help then that's great. I'd rather help animals than waste money on Africa to prolong their lives which are just going to be miserable and useless anyway.
    And I have no problem w/ kill shelters. It's better to be dead than stuck in a cage or being abused by some scumbag or adopted by idiots who tire of you after awhile and then get "rid" of you.

    I live by this principle....get your own house in order first, then give to something you believe in locally. Bill Gates' limo is driving by homeless people, or houses containing abused spouses/children everyday.

    I get pissed off at pretty much everything Bill Gates does now. Its like he's trying to buy absolution.

    I lived before and thru his impact on the world and I agree 1000% with Douglas Adams:

    “The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armor to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.”

    He was on the Nerdist podcast recently, and he seems to believe that if they cure malaria the Africans will catch up with Western civilization. It interferes with their brain development, you see.

    :rolleyes:

    I donate 10% of my paycheck to African animal shelters.
    I hate seeing those commercials with puppies and kittens laying around with flies buzzing around their little heads.

    yeah then he can convince them that Windows is the cure to all their economic problems. i don't think a malaria cure is going to make much difference if they don't also stop fucking green monkeys, stop chopping of women's clits, stop invading towns to kill the men and older women while kidnapping and marrying all the young girls.

    The only version of windows any good at all was win7.
    The rest were all buggy screwed up over complex crap that would crash or lock up if you even looked at it the wrong way.

    I think ppl should spend their money however they see fit. But when stinky rich ppl ask others to give to a cause they're championing, they need to be called out as cheapos - and maybe kicked in the nuts. ( Yes, still talking about Beth )

    95 was excellent for the times without virtual memory, but after that it took almost 10 years before they came out with another stable release. Windows 7 is really good at hiding its faults: it is so subject to memory leaks and exploits that MS has to patch it every 7 days, and the patches are buggier than the OS they are intended to patch. The only way to keep 7 from crashing is to reboot it weekly.

    He made his billions in a particular social, political and economic environment. Before Bill Gates there was relative law and order, an industrial economy, an educated work force, energy infrastructure, government-funded research that produced computers and the internet and so on. Try to get an autistic techie-libertarian like Bill Gates to appreciate any debt to the society that created the necessary preconditions for his success. That's a hard sell, forget his personal wealth -- you can't even get Microsoft to pay up, it's a top offshore tax-dodger. With enough like-minded Oligarchs managing the economy, you have a real crises of civilization. America came dangerously close to a fascist dictatorship last time around.













    I read a headline today that 1 in 5 suicides is due to despair from unemployment. Microsoft is both a major offshore tax-dodger and outsourcer of jobs. By inducing him to pay his taxes and hire Americans you could turn Bill Gates into a reluctant humanitarian and patriot. Instead the money is going to towards population reduction or whatever appeals to
