A Bill Gates joke but, probably NOT, what you're expecting...

Dear all,

The young Bill Gates was given a Crow, for his eight Birthday, which he cared for greatly. Ten years later Bill, visited a Clairvoyant for 'Advice About His Future'.

Later that day, Bill's Mother, found him with a Large Pot of boiling water, on the stove. In his other hand he was holding his Crow "What, on earth, are you 'doing' Bill"? asked his, rather confused Mother. "Well" Begins Bill "That Clairvoyant said that I could, one day be the Richest Man In The World, if I did Just ONE 'thing.'". "So what's with this water?" says his mum." "Well, she said, that all I had to do was....Brace Yourselves Everyone..... 'make My CROW Soft''"πŸ˜¬πŸ˜­πŸ˜‹πŸ˜€

I do 'hope' that this Wasn't the last 'Clap For Carers'- I was calling "Not The Last, Not From Here" from my window, whist clapping, banging a pot- with a wooden spoon- and 'walloping' the window sill and surrounds. The LAST should be when this is OVER and we can ALL stand, in the Street- Shaking Hands!

By the way, does 'Anybody' remember 'Brexit'? Someone mentioned it, the other day.....?

I remember brexit that's when we all stood together to be 1 europe but decided not to then came coronavirus when we couldn't stand together but wanted to Andrew t it beggars belief

Oh no! I thought my jokes were bad! Seriously, that joke gets a snort rating of 5! πŸ˜€πŸŒΈ

I actually think Bill Gates has given so much money away to charity that he should be thanked, I am not sure even he realised what he was going unleash on to the world, but I do get the Brexit thing. We have though joined with the rest of Europe to try and deal with this terrible virus so I think that is a good thing. I guess this time I missed the joke! And quite unlike me really.

Bill Gates basically stole the window idea. He strangles any competition and just decided that everyone still on windows 7 won’t get any support any longer forcing you to buy windows 10. He gives less money away then the average man percentage wise. It’s easy when you are a multi billionaire through dirty tactics to give money away. You personally giving Β£50 will be more percentage wise than him giving a billion.

I do actually get what you are saying, but have you actually looked as his long term plan, he really is giving all of his money away and has been for a long time now. I had no idea and from anything that I have ever read that he stole his ideas and I would love to know where you are getting your information and by the way I have never worked for him so let me know out of interest. Who did he steal his ideas from and I know about the windows 7 thing as it stopped being supported as happens with a lot of old products,

I am still not a fan of windows 10 even though I have been using it for 2 years now.

I look forward to your reply.

Dear DeniseLB,

The Joke isn't that deep, It's just a Play On Words. Bill is told he will make 'Microsoft', so sets about making 'My Crow Soft'... by using the boiling water. Bill Gates is only used, as a reference, Because it 'Works' in the Joke. No other reference, to Mr Gates, was intended.

Sorry if this was unclear.

Denise the idea was from his old college buddy, I cannot remember offhand all the details. On paper he looks like the nice guy now by apparently giving all his worldly goods away after his death I may add. This is bar a few million for his kids. However if he was so nice why does he stop all competition dead in its tracks. I knew years ago about his so called great thing of giving all bar a few million away after his death. Look into who is behind the plan of privatising schools in the US. There is a lot more behind the front of giving away his money after his death.

Thank you for your explanation. Now, I understand and it is funny. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

By meeting up every Thursday to clap for carers, our neighbourhood has grown closer, and we are planning to maybe continue to meet up outside for a drink each Thursday, as we have been doing, but without the clapping, and weather permitting. A barbeque has been suggested. We are a small community of about half a dozen houses.

Sound Lovely Maggie- our 'Flats', at least Five of us, are regularly meeting up, in the evenings now.

It didn't happen. Oh well, we get on better than most neighbours.
