Gates vs. GM


For all of us who feel only the deepest love and affection for the way computers have enhanced our lives, read on.


At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated,


"If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon."


In response to Bill's comments, General Motors issued a press release stating:


If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics (and I just love this part):


1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash........

Twice a day.


2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a new car.


3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would have to pull to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue. For some reason you would simply accept this.


4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.


5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive - but would run on only five percent of the roads.


6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be replaced by a single "This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation" warning light.


I love the next one!!!


7. The airbag system would ask "Are you sure?" before deploying.


8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.


9. Every time a new car was introduced car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.


10. You'd have to press the "Start" button to turn the engine off.

Brilliant. Absoultely brilliant.


Okay so computers have changed all our lives, and been a revolution. It should be an opening to all the information in the world. 99% of what is on there however is western pop drivel and if it were not for this place and my contact with native peoples (who are periodically "locked out" of this so called information democracy by changes in technology) I would sling the thing.


Bill Gates the richest man in the world and made his money from selling patched togeher crap, momopolising the opposition and releasing it a bit at a time so you have to be "upgraded" or die just like the cybermen.


And lets face it; it is all because of porn that the majority accept it.


Also the car that cost $25 and did a 1000 miiles to the gallon would bring the planet to its knees in about a month.


Well I have a revolutionary new idea for transport. It does 40 mph , runs on recycled cereal crops from fallow fields; its emissions are nothing next to cars, and is by far the greatest invention of man after the fur. It is truly beautiful, comes in several natural shades and also metallic silver and gold, and can traverse most terrains. Unlike bicycles it is far more sturdy, and does not use metals and rubber therefore does not like the bike damage wildlife habitats . In collission with a vehicle the driver of the auto is far more likely to be killed, as its density is far greater than the automobile. It is capable of FAR greater intelligence than any car or computer. We have used it for 15000 years and is by far the greatest war machine ever invented. If it had been deployed in Afghanistan as the SAS requested then Bin laden would have been history. The reason he has avoided capture is because HE uses them. You don't get parking fines, speeding fines, and it has a wide variety of acessories, including deluxe leather furnishings by Gucci and Hermes. It comes in high performance speedy sports varieties though they are high maintenance, or sturdy robust types suitable for heavier work. They can last up to 30 years with good care, though most need a garage or a large amount of acreage tostore when not in use. They can even travers 6ft obstacles, walls , hedges and have better suspension than any car ever developed. What is more, if you buy correctly, they actually can produce you a brand new model. If everyone in the world were to transfer to these vehicles within 20 years, the rate of global warming would slow to add at least 300 years to rising sea levels: that is how green it is. We would all save countless millions in tax as they do NOT require maintenance of roads. You are free to travel anywhere you want and in fact the only thing stopping deployment and effective marketing of this brilliant idea is CARS and ROADS. It would be possible to travel 100 miles in about 6 hours comfortably and enjoyably without stress if you stop to put water in its tank every hour. With a model produced in the middle east quicker and without water stops.Sometimes it takes me longer by automobile to travel that. There is no danger whatsoever of traffic jam, and it is the ultimate pulling machine. The clothing necessary to travel using this vehicle is sexy and lots of leather is involved. It reconnects you with nature immediately, and you begin to see the circle of life again when you have experience of using it. If you get in a potential accident, it has the lightning ability to think and act on its own accord. If you have a really good model it can make you a lot of money. It brings your children great joy and access to a world of new avenues.

traffic jam and it does not require wateful polluting factories to make.

I would highly recommend investing in one now as the price of them is likely to go through the roof when the oil runs out; by which time you could have started your own production and be sitting on a mint.


Okay the downside is it is only one horse power. It is the Horse.
