I doubt VERY much anything could have come from gates's stunt. if so, you could sue him, he can afford it. and he made a nice point


My best friend from college died at the age of 27 from anaphylaxis after being bitten by a mosquito (he had severe mosquito allergies). The allergic reaction was from proteins in the mosquito's saliva.

Tests did show that there was no evidence of malaria in his system. So, forgive me if I'm not impressed that Bill Gates did nothing more than insure he had malaria-free mosquitos.

You know what else is stupid? The use of the word bipartisan by those who belong to organizations and practice partisan philosophy's [Insert Lyndel Avatar Here].

Too bad about your friend, but the risk was incredibly low. The people who went to the talk were more likely to die in a car accident on the way there, than they were to die from from anaphylaxis brought on by a mosquito bite (given that anaphylaxis of all sorts is only responsible for about 18 deaths each year in the U.S.).

Now, if Gates had tossed a handful of peanuts into the audience, maybe then there would be cause to be upset. (And I'm not even sure about that.)

The other day, Nancy Pelosi said:

"Every month we don't have an economic stimulus package, 500 million Americans will lose their jobs."

500 million?
Every MONTH?!?!?!
She sounds dumber than a bucket of hair!


To be fair, here is a transcript of what happened:

NANCY PELOSI: Well, I believe that - I know that President-elect Obama is a strong supporter of America's workers. I myself am a strong supporter of that legislation. We passed it with a strong vote in the House in the last Congress, and I continue to be supportive of it.

But in terms of what we have to do in the first 100 days, we must address the needs of this country. Five hundred million people will lose their jobs each month until we have an economic package.

CHRIS WALLACE, HOST: No, 500,000.

PELOSI: What did I say, million?

WALLACE: Yes, 500 million. That would really be a recession.

PELOSI: Oh, no. Excuse me. Thank you for correcting me.

WALLACE: Yes.

PELOSI: It feels like 500 million. Five hundred thousand Americans will lose their jobs each month until we have a recovery package.


Stupid is making political hay out of the sort of mis-speak and correction everybody goes through every day.

From now on, I'll mention to all my friends that they should make sure to die from something that is statistically significant.

Here's what's really stupid. It's those radio spots where you have two people talking to each other about a product or service. And they are trying to make it sound like an actual, informal, real time conversation, (Where they just happen to squeeze in the phone # and address of the service in question) but it always sounds EXACTLY like what it is. (Two people reading, in a very wooden fashion, from a script.)

Yup. Now that's stupid.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.
