I am sure this site will be reaching the farthest ends of the universe, it is
important to remember some of the more intriguing people who may wander through.
One of those, of course, is Mr. Bill Gates, the Richest Man In The World (according
A fair deal for Bill Gates
Bill's worth over 80 billion dollars! At the current price of a Whopper
Combo meal at Burger King, that's over 20 billion Whoppers -with fries
and a Coke. That's a whole lot of burgers. But hey, he's smart, driven,
and successful. Never will you hear me bemoan someone else's wealth.
Especially if it's the guy whose company developed the Windows(tm) operating system.
(Note the gratuitous butt-kissing.)
just recently purchased and am reading Bill's book, Business at the Speed of
Thought for a steal at $30.00. It got me to thinking about my own net
worth. I'd say, after calculating in the Student Loans, Credit Card debt,
the Omnipresent-Pile-O-Bills, and stuff like that, and then adding in my highly
valued assets like the car, computer and stereo system, my net worth
hovers at around $5,000.
here if you're ready to Gimme A Buck (please)
I felt compelled to invest in the knowledge Bill Gates could impart to me in his
book, Business at the Speed of Thought for $30.00. That calculates
out to about .6% of my net worth. If Mr. Gates made the same investment
in Gimme A Buck (please), in ratio with his net worth,
the contribution would be only $480 million. Peanuts.
true, I'm not offering anything as interesting or engaging as
Business at the Speed of Thought. (And it was both interesting
and engaging...) However, I think I can offer a really cool
sequence of pictures of my wife and I rolling around in piles of cash. I
think that'd be worth at least 1% of a book, though that figure is certainly negotiable.
1% of $480 million would be $4.8 million, a modest donation for
such a wonderful return. Heck, I'd be willing take only a million
and call it a deal!
Act now Bill, and seize your chance to
make philanthropic history by giving to one of the most deserving
couples in the World. (Again, this is my own opinion.)
Hey, I don't use Linux! Does that make the offer more
