Bill Gates and the Greatest Tech Hack Ever →
A really interesting take on the Bill Gates legacy. Forget the shitty software and shady business dealings. What if you said “if we create a ‘solve aids’ or ‘stop malaria’ tax on businesses we could make a huge impact on the third world? It would have the potential to solve a lot of problems, but of course it would get shot down. But what if you created a crapware...

WWJD? Skip the gay kissing and get to the Mayo.
American Family Association Spam: Dear Daniel, I thought you might be interested in seeing the Heinz ad featuring a homosexual family and two homosexuals kissing.
The ad features a "homosexual family," referring to one of the men as "Mum." We suggest you forward this to all your family and friends letting them know of the push for homosexual marriage by Heinz. This ad is currently running in England, but no doubt can be expected in the U.S. soon. It is the kind of ad which we can expect to see in California as they prepare to vote on homosexual marriage. Homosexual marriage is illegal in England.
Me: Donald, Really? Did you watch the ad? Did you see that the BRITISH kids called the NEW YORK DELI GUY "mom"? That wasn't an assualt on family values, that was a funny ad. The premise was that the mayo would make your sandwich as good as NY deli, so they transplanted a NY deli guy for the mom. If you don't understand that, you shouldn't be allowed to use a computer.
Donald (AFA president): Daniel, Obviously, you missed the point the ad was offensive, inappropriate and unsuitable for children. Fox News host Bill O’Reilly’s statement sums it up “I just want mayonnaise. I don’t want guys kissing.” If you don’t understand that maybe you shouldn’t be allowed to use a computer.
Me (giggling hysterically): I'm a heterosexual and I thought it was funny. Did you get a little tingle down there or something?
Donald (AFA president): I think your peach fuzz is clouding your judgement
Me (I can't believe he hasn't just kicked me off his mailing list yet): Wow, you got in a tizzy over peach fuzz, men kissing and mayonnaise all in one day. Seems a little gay to me. Are you sure you don't want to have a little talk? I know some people who might be able to lend a hand.
Fran (from the AFA): Daniel, please do not contact us again with such nonsense. Thank you. Fran < AFA Staff http://www.needhim.org/
Me (really suprised to see yet another e-mail): Hey now, no need to get snippy. You contacted me! You e-mail said "I thought you might be interested in seeing the Heinz ad featuring a homosexual family and two homosexuals kissing." What am I supposed to think about that? I'm not one to judge, but I'm fairly indifferent to two homosexuals kissing. I'm not interested in watching homosexuals kiss for sexual gratification, nor does it stir up some kind of weird shame/hate complex in me that would make me try and boycott a mayonnaise company (I prefer veganaise anyway). All I'm saying is that Donald might need a walk in the desert with 12 close bachelor friends. It might loosen up his mind, as well as his body. The lord is your temple. ))(( forever.
