Bill Gates Wishes He Weren't So Rich

Posted by Fara Kearnes on May 5, 2006 3:36 PM |

Bill GatesMicrosoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates said Wednesday he wished he were not the world's richest man for the 8th year in a row.

"I wish I wasn't. There is nothing good that comes out of that," said Gates.

Yeah, right. Would somebody please pimp-slap his ass?

The Microsoft founder, currently worth $50 billion, is also a big philanthropist but explained that he did not like the attention of being the world's richest person. "You get more visibility as a result of it," he complained during an interview.

Still, Gates joked about his plight being unequaled in wealth. Asked if he surrounded himself with financial peers, he quipped, "No, I sit alone."

The Microsoft co-founder said that the person he learned most from in the world, aside from technology colleagues, was fellow-billionaire and legendary investor Warren Buffett.

"He has this very refreshing, simple way of looking at things so I put him top of the list," said Gates, citing Buffett's integrity.

slt j rien comprie la alors je ne dirait rien

Yayah, well I am tired of being so poor. If Bill Gates would allow it, we could trade places for the rest of our lives and then see if our wishes satisfied the two of us.

It is not so much about wealth but what you do with it. Bill Gates contributes from his personal wealth a massive contribituion to world wide causes specifically through his Foundation.

I have been recently trying to reach him directly on behalf of our company to discuss a much needed environmental solution that would benefit all Americans and play a part to reduce the dependance on foreign oil. The foundations mandate is focused and does not include what we have in mind. Hoping to present this directly if only to get an open window for first contact. Help.

Please Mr. Gates we vanishing of poor please please help us
