    1). Just because you canít think of any doesnít mean there hasnít been more. Many more.

    2). Even if no one ever has, it doesnít matter going forward.

    3). Still not a reason to ***** that he didnít donate the money earlier.

    It's a shame you said that not once - but twice

    umm. ur forgetting the guy responsible for most of today's tech, the god fearing man who foresaw much of today's technological progress and scientific regression.

    dude allegedly died penniless (not sure I buy that) but he owned a patent worth a fortune, he tore it up for the betterment of a company so that he could continue his humanitarian work ....

    doctor in NY doesn't know if ventilators are the right move, says some of his patients are dying from something that doesn't act like a virus. man the fallout from this will be amazing to watch, hopefully these doctors dont get suicided like the holistic docs decades ago

    The guy that invented the three point seat belt also refused to patent his invention because it would help save lives.

    Touche. Basically my point was it's rare that someone that does something for the greater good and doesn't want recognition for it. Then again, I get the catch-22 for rich people to do this without saying anything. If they anonymously donate, people will question why they didn't do anything, they do it while advertising it you get people like me saying they are only doing it for the good looks it brings. I guess the middle ground is Bill Gates who does all of this, has his name on it, but doesn't alert the press every time he does it.

    I've read some of the conspiracy theories that Bill Gates is one of the main entities behind all of this. Everything from his funding of the Wuhan labs to his influence on ruining the economy until his vaccine can be approved, to him being on the front lines of creating a singular world socialist government. Haven't seen a shred of legitimate evidence. But I have seen people saying these things.


    Rippin' lips son!!
