Before we commence the dumping upon, let us give credit where due. She is aware of it. I have met so many people who started off on third base and have never swung a bat...

"I suppose I am privileged" says heiress to a hundred-billion-dollar fortune to reporter in a glowing puff piece praising her for being so privileged.

"I am inspired by my father's tireless dedication to philanthropy", she says of man whose wealth has increased nearly tenfold from when, as the richest man alive, he founded a high-profile charity promising to give away his money.

"My parents taught me the value of hard work", she says of people currently sitting on a cash pile that automatically grows by five billion dollars a year by passively sucking up profits out of the markets as worker incomes remain stagnant.

"It's just about using my position to do as much good in the world as I can", she says while taking a break from her equestrian hobby to study for a career as a doctor in the £5m house next to campus her parents bought her.

"This is a good article that will surely increase my public standing in a time of widespread economic crisis" she thought as the journalist signed off the Zoom call.

Good on Ms Gates, I say. A lot of her peers just join the board of some obscure charity and then dress up and go to parties.

And unlike, say, Wharton, you can't get waived through medical school because your dad endowed some building or chair.

If she needs a trophy husband, I'm willing to volunteer.


/My MCSA will probably impress her dad as well.

Depends.  I knew a guy from high school and college that eventually wound up studying medicine in Granada (although I doubt it was as expensive as getting waived through Wharton).

I doubt the words of anyone with that many digits to their name by nature. It saves me some disappointment down the line. That said, those were the kind of words someone who was raised right would use. Fingers crossed, I guess.

Get in line pal, I have written a special bass solo just for her. Hoping she has been dreaming of a guy who'll frequently nap on one of her many couches.

Third base?

pkjun: heiress to a hundred-billion-dollar fortune


She isn't going to be eating cat food, but my recollection is that the vast majority of the Gates fortune isn't going to the kids.  I also believe Gates has long supported stiff inheritance taxes.
