some facts about billgates 1.Bill Gates earns US$250 every SECOND, that's about US$20 Million a DAY and US$7.8 Billion a YEAR! 2.If he drops a thousand dollars, he won't even bother to pick it up bcoz the 4 seconds he picks it, he would've already earned it back. 3.The US national debt is about 5.62 trillion, if Bill Gates were to pay the debt by himself; he will finish it in less then 10 years. 4.He can donate US$15 to everyone on earth but still be left with US$5 Million for his pocket money. 5.Michael Jordan is the highest paid athlete in US. If he doesn't drink and eat, and keeps up his annual income i.e. US$30 Million, he'll have to wait for 277 years to become as rich as Bill Gates is now. 6.If Bill Gates was a country, he would be the 37th richest country on earth. 7.If you change all of Bill Gate's money to US$1 notes, you can make a road from the earth to moon, 14 times back and forth.! But you have to make that road non-stop for 1400 years, and use a total of 713 BOEING 747 planes to transport all the money. 8.Bill Gates is 47. If we assume that he will live for another 35 years, he has to spend US$6.78 Million per day to finish all his money before he goes to heaven. Last but not the least: If Microsoft Windows' users can claim US$1 for every time their computers hang because of Microsoft Windows, Bill Gates will be bankrupt in 3 years!!!

I don't know about being knighted... But Bill Gates and his wife have donated billions of dollars to help fight HIV and AIDS in developing countries and have established a foundation to help deal with diseases and hunger in these areas. They are truly good people who are making a difference in the world.
