Who cares what Bill Gates thinks! If he wants to help find a cure for malaria then great! Good for him! I think he has some spare money somewhere! I dont care how they come up with a cure for hairloss as long as they do!

hm, i thought there would be malaria drugs available that work quite well. Didn’t know that this disease still needs drugs to be developed.

Well i am from Greece…my country is ruled by a bunch of retards.I personally dont think that countries should exist…they have no meaning they just divide people like religion.

Others are fanatics for their religion and even kill or die for it, others are fanatic for their country and they kill and die for it.

Any person with a working mind will see that eventually in his life …or he will die clueless without ever progressing to the next step of evolution.

since most people are from america here i tell you what i think of america.Its just another form of empire like all the empires through history.It rules with economics and where that is not applicable they go to war. As a country it has very nice smart people and even buys smart people from other countries but the vast majority of the population is a mindless floc of sheep…that happens in most countries

I agree with your post but I haven’t understood that thing about the next step of evolution

I think as humans we progress…once we believed in witches and burned innocent people.We believed that the earth is flat…

Well we still believe in stereotypes like countries, religions and such. the nest step of evolution is to understand that these things are only meant to divide us. these ties are needed by weak minds to feel like they belong somewhere so that they dont feel alone and helpless ;)…these weak minds are insecured and scared and they can become even dangerous by becoming racists and such but in the end they are just… retards :wink:

Only a retard would see as enemies people from other countries as a whole, only a retard would see as animals people from a whole region.And i can see there are many retards here.

Its from his speach at TED. He started his speech by releasing a bottle of mosquitos on the crowd, claiming that “poor people shouldn’t be the only ones to get malaria”. What an ass.

I think ballmer had been doing his wife behind his back, thats why he’s against finding a baldness cure.

Forget about who said it, and his intentions, but I can’t find anything wrong with it … maybe you don’t like it, but we are not the center of the world, are we ?

Why does he have to believe “the world’s flat” just because he thinks its a bad idea to encourage population growth on the poorest, most ecologically fragile, and war-prone continents?

WTH is wrong with you? So now a person can’t even object to this behavior? I don’t want to get any attention from the world, but who the hell gave him the right to go around downplaying baldness?

Did you read Dr. Cotsarelis latest interview (posted few days ago). He himself said that you can’t get funding for baldness and he laughed about it. Now we have this idiot going around saying baldness gets more funding, people are gonna think that billions are being poured into baldness research and this already fragile and controversial (by hairy people’s standards) research will bite the dust! Btw, the fact is that almost all of the funding in hairloss research is from private investors.

Well, I’m gonna write what he said, if he really said that and in that way …

"Gates said more money was being spent finding a cure for baldness than developing drugs to combat malaria. Now, baldness is a terrible thing and rich men are afflicted,’ he joked.

I don’t care about that part, it’s likely a bad joke.

Then, we have this:

‘That is why that priority has been set. The market does not drive scientists, thinkers, or governments to do the right things. Only by paying attention and making people care can we make as much progress as we need to.’"

This is commom sense, sorry if you can’t see it, that was what I meant. Now I’m going for a walk, under the snow, bye.

What you wrote is from dailymail.co.uk - Only they said “he joked”.

Watch the video above, he Didn’t say it in a funny way But apparently the audience found it hilarious. [See 4:30]

Again, the reason I called him a d*ck was because he also made a special point about baldness during his graduation speech at Harvard. I really can’t understand why you put in the second quote and told me about common sense. I know economics and I never argued that part.

Gitmo is a public relations liability. It should be either closed or renamed just for that reason alone.

Africa doesn’t need attention put into ANYTHING besides getting it a bunch of decent functioning governments.

Gates is about the richiest man in the world and has a full head of hair. It’s easy to be a philosoph when you’re rich and famous… However, i think he’s having a good point when he stresses that science is driven by money. More generally, the world is driven by money to the point it actually really sucks more&more every day. That said, i’d still want my hair back, it’s just to get laid i’ll leave the money to the bald, rich, old fat guys :wink:

Gates proves once again to be an idiot.
If he was bald, what would he say?
I hope Melinda gets bald!! we will have a good laugh!! EH, BILLY, DID YOU MARRY HOMER SIMPSON??

At least a bit of respect, sir, we are not killing those malaria guys.
a lot of money is “wasted” in irrelevant things, like fashion, lingerie and lipsticks, but you know what? its a cool thing, and makes life more pleasurable. I hope this money keeps getting “wasted” in these superficial things.
How about those videogames Microsoft sells? Don’t you think this money could be better invested in Malaria research?

If you think deeply, you will realize that 90% of the products are not really necessary… if we want to live like monkeys in the forest.

My comment. We had DDT for malaria years ago and it worked extremely well in killing mosquito populations and keeping their numbers under control. Some bad science prompted by Rachel Carson’s book, “Silent Spring”, led to the banning of this substance and malaria and mosquitos made a big comeback.

Baldness research via Aderans, Follica, ACELL, Intercytex, Histogen, Pfizer, Androscience, Glaxo-Smith-Kline, and a few other smaller entitites, does not really eat up all that much money. Gates literally was probably talking out of his @ss on this one, and couldn’t have provided numbers to save his life. He was just guessing almost assuredly.

If Melinda Gates, a nutbar activist who has been a gold-digger since college–trying to socially ingrate herself with the wealthiest guys and a lousy businessperson (remember “Microsoft Bob”----that was Melinda’s project, a huge failure) who wants to be a world-crusader with Bill’s money (that Bill only made because IBM execs made about the worst business decision in history, allowing Bill a monopoly on softward to run their computers, thus making all IBM clones have to use Microsoft’s “so-so” software), went female-pattern bald over the next two years with see-through hair…I promise you she’d become very interested in baldness research and would probably demand to PERSONALLY get to speak with Dr. Angela Christiano, Vera Price, Marty Sawaya wanting to know “when we can expect a cure for this horrible afflicitve condition” and when is “science going to address this important women’s issue”, etc.

Steve Jobs, who once had a nice head of hair, went bald. Thats probably why Bill doesn’t want a cure for baldness to be found.


#38

We could post countless examples to refute Gates.
Think about women whose breasts had to be amputated due to breast cancer.
Many of them undergo reconstructive surgery to somehow recover thir previous appearance. A total waste of money, according to Gates, that could be devoted to malaria research…??

For us, a full head of hair is the same that a couple of breasts for a woman,
or even more important, as your face is visible all the time, and it is your interface to the world. An ugly face downgrades your image, and how people treat you.
But I am sure Bill Gates wouldn’t dare to make fun of these amputated women.
Making fun out of bald men is politically correct. But if you make fun of a black man, or a jew, for example, thats a great offence.

I said it before, and I’ll say it again, there’s a serious lack of empathy on this planet.
Bill Gates never experienced hairloss, and he never tried to understand it, so we shouldn’t be
surprised by the tone of his comments. Quite frankly, I don’t care what he has to say about
hairloss for that very reason.

The true irony behind his comments is that he could generate enough money to cure malaria,
feed and educate the planet if he applied a portion of his money for a cure for hairloss first.
