World’s Richest Geek Tries to Terrify Audience
Yuk yuk. That Bill Gates is such a card:
Microsoft founder turned philanthropist Bill Gates released a glass full of mosquitoes at an elite technology conference to make a point about the deadly disease malaria.
“Malaria is spread by mosquitoes,” Gates said while opening a jar onstage at the Technology, Entertainment, Design Conference — a gathering known to attract technology kings, politicians, and Hollywood stars.
“I brought some. Here I’ll let them roam around. There is no reason only poor people should be infected.”
A few minutes after releasing the jarful of mosquitoes, Gates told his audience that the insects didn’t really have malaria. But I doubt he told them the reason mosquitoes are able to kill so many millions in the Third World: his fellow sanctimonious liberal do-gooders have managed to suppress the use of DDT, which had saved half a billion lives but is considered ideologically unclean by moonbats.
