About damn time...


I like the theory I heard on Comedy Central Presents.


"Give the thirty richest people in the world AIDs. We would have seven different cures in a week"

 :D

It's funny, because 500 mil to Bill Gates is nothing. Yeah, it sounds impressive, and yeah, it is a lot, but to him, this isn't a serious hole burnt in his pocket.

Well, yes it's not really important for him to give out 500M, but at least he's doing it, that means he's not being a selfish bastard and thinking of others. Some people, rich people, just want to waste their money and power on useless things just because they want more money... something like citizen kane, just less exaggerated

I'm sure a huge part of it is that he now can make a huge tax claim.

"universal treatment for those who need it for HIV medicines in the developing world by 2010."

That money is not curing anything. His money might be better spent on research.

Gates regularly gives to charity, especially health charities. His annual gifts to charity are around US$1.5 billion. I don't see what the fuss is about. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the richest charity on Earth.

Quote
Bill Gates, the world's richest man, yesterday pledged $500m (390m, 260m) to the UN-backed Global Fund to fight Aids, TB and malaria, further reinforcing his role as the single largest philanthropist supporting global health.

Good on you Bill Gates, kudos. Kudos.

Also SmileyMan, they aren't necessarily stupid, they may just not know the consequences of their actions.

PALM: Oh face, come closer. I've needed your touch since I heard that fundamentalist Christians were being stupid again.
FACE: Not again! Quickly Palm, come to me!

You're going to hell you do realise, and what about those people who where rape and got it, or those people who got it from blood transfusions before they began screening for the virus?
