I mean, I know Bill Gates deserves eternal damnation for the MS Office paperclip, but why is he always touted as the global conspiracist by these nutbars? Jeff Bezo's is a much more convincing bad guy - he at least is profiting mightily from the Pandemic.....

Bill Gates never gave me the evil vibe like Jeff Bezo's does. Bill Gates kind of looks like a down to earth fellow who happens to be wealthy from building a company from pretty much nothing.

I asked one of the conspiracy nuts I know what computer they use, it's windows, but I didn't pursue it beyond that, because not worth trying to reason with this type of person.

I think Bill and Melinda Gates should adopt me. Both my parents are gone, and it could be mutually beneficial. I wouldn't have to worry about supporting myself in my old age, and I could be very handy doing chores around the house mansion. I'd still want to use Linux though.

He does have a nice house (assuming he hasn't sold and moved since 2019, apparently also has a trampoline room.

https://www.homesandproperty.co.uk/l...1.html#gallery

Medina, WA is where Gates and Bezos and 2,998 other wealthy people live, the city is the 7th wealthiest zip code in the US, median home value in the city 2.77 million, median household income $186,464 (for comparison the US median household income is 60,000)

The city in 2019 was facing financial troubles due to lack of tax revenue and inability to raise taxes at a rate to even keep up with increasing costs. For the record, Bill Gates has the highest assessed home at $131,239,000 and paid $1,040,627 in property taxes in which 83,000 went to the city.

Kind of amusing a city with what the richest and 2nd or 3rd richest persons in the world was/is facing financial difficulties, seems the city residents want to live beyond their means.

Bill Gates and his Wife are amazing human beings. God knows how many thousands of lives their foundation has saved over the years fighting Polio eradication. I would love to get him as my Reddit secret santa.

I'll admit I did't read all the way to the end of the linked article, but I assume that somewhere it asserted that Nostradamus predicted covid-19.
