Bill Gates Never Said This

You gotta love Snopes.com. As you may be, I'm always bombarded with these annoying emails that have 17 "FWD:" indicators in front of their subject line. That means that the original message was probably sent back around the Hoover Administration. Anyway, I got one of these "forwarded forwards" last night and the subject line said: "Bill Gates - Brilliant." So, against all my better judgment, I opened the message to see why Bill Gates is/was brilliant, besides being among the richest men in the world, if indeed money = smart.

With typically giant, colored text, the requisite excess number of exclamation points, and punctuation and usage errors, the message shouted, "~ Bill Gates ~ This should be posted in every school or kid's bedroom. Love him or hate him , he sure hits the nail on the head with this.!!! Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about eleven (11) things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world."
