47. Oh, and as for Bill Gates...

 

He's just another Carnegie and Rockefeller. No one gets that disgustingly rich without fucking people over both on their way and to remain on top (it's a contest). Each turned philanthropic. Douchebags often turn philanthropic. Why you show so much reverence for Bill Gates should be the title of your next thread: "Why do we glorify douchebags once they turn philanthropic?"

Philanthropists love to stick their name on everything.

Here's The Gates Center at, fittingly, Carnegie-Mellon University.
