Wholesome bill gates buying all the farm land and huge reservoirs of fresh water, not ominous at all

u/Life_Blacksmith412 27d ago

Don't forget about how Bill Gates learned everything he knows about computers from an open source social program that donated computers to his very wealthy school so he, his friends and even his well off parents didn't have to spend a single dime upfront to purchase the hardware/software and then when Bill Gates grew up he demanded at every turn that people have to pay as much money as humanly possible so they could use the software he created that again, he would never have been able to create without local tax payer funded social programs!

Oh and let's not forget he's the MAIN REASON COVID VACCINES NOW COST WHAT THEY COST

He was instrumental in making sure that Covid Vaccines were patented despite, you guessed it, the funding coming from tax payers all around the world!

Bill Gates isn't just a piece of shit. He's a gargantuan piece of human shit that should have been flushed decades ago

Fuck I hate me some Bill Gates. The most punchable face in America

What's this shitty reasoning? I went to public school and got educated with tax payers money. Am I supposed to work for free because of that and people not to pay for my services?

u/FuckThisIsGross 27d ago

By all accounts that ive seen bill credits a different person for doing the bulk of basic. If i recall correctly there was a third person that did a lot of the math based programming as well

Literally nothing you just said is a true verifiable statement. Everything you just said is a rumor at best an unverifiable at worst.

u/TheTVDB 27d ago

There are legitimate complaints about Bill Gates, but this land ownership one is silly. He claims the land will be used to advance biodiesel and hardy seed development. Given his charitable work in related areas, why would this be in question and why would it be a bad thing? The land is still being used for farming, and the farmers get financial backing that provides stability they often lack.

u/Sephor 27d ago

Research the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation and the education system, and how badly they fucked up.

2

u/TheTVDB 27d ago

Pretty much everything I've ever read on the topic has pointed out that their education program failed to help students. I'm not sure that qualifies as fucking up, since it didn't cause other negative effects, since it was their money, and since publicly funded efforts gave failed even more.

I personally think rich people putting their money towards trying to improve society is a good thing, even when those efforts fail.

Unless I'm missing something.

u/BigDickKnucle 27d ago

Aah, yes, Bill Gates is a well-known farmer. /s

Even if the land does get farmed, it would be a feudal lord - peasant type of relationship - get real.

Yeah Bill Gates is a massive piece of shit. He's one of those people you line up against the wall after the revolution. Right next to Elon and Bezos.

Edit: Clearly some folks need to be educated so here's a copy paste from another comment in this thread

"Don't forget about how Bill Gates learned everything he knows about computers from an open source social program that donated computers to his very wealthy school so he, his friends and even his well off parents didn't have to spend a single dime upfront to purchase the hardware/software and then when Bill Gates grew up he demanded at every turn that people have to pay as much money as humanly possible so they could use the software he created that again, he would never have been able to create without local tax payer funded social programs!

Fuck I hate me some Bill Gates. The most punchable face in America"

Edit: One thing you should keep in mind. Billionaires have lots of money. Lots of money to invest in buying reporters and articles telling you about how awesome they are. This is how Elon Musk got so famous and well liked between 2010-2018. He just paid people to write sparkling articles about him. Bill Gates does the same thing. Jeff Bezos went so far that he bought the Washington Post and they went from writing articles critical of climate change and billionaires to suddenly publishing "Why Billionaires are actually good" and "Why Climate Change isn't that big of a deal"

Goddamn, stop being so easily manipulated by what you read. Grow up

Maybe someone who even just acknowledges that shopping around for wives in your company is not a good thing to do.

There's a long enough list of shit Bill Gates has done that you don't have to dip into conspiracy theories

u/Malicharo 27d ago

Everyone does that tho. Everyone shops around for a partner in a place where they have influence. That's only natural.

u/BecksSoccer 27d ago

I admire the contributions Bill Gates makes for the world and his ongoing humanitarian efforts, so I don’t say this out of malice. The “I hope he tells…” sentence doesn’t sound as it was intended.

In the post, Bill Gates says that he hopes his dad takes credit for Microsoft and tells them that he’s (dad) all the things the other (son) aspires to be. So the aspiration and recognition lies within the “real” brains behind Microsoft. That the son looks up to his father for creating this mega company, achieving so many great things, and letting his son take the credit.

But the reality is that the son is the real creator of Microsoft, which means all the aspiration and recognition doesn’t go to the father at all. It’s like saying, “Dad, please take the credit so you could have a reason for me to look up to you.”
