Hello all towertalkians:
The following message was sent to me and I thought many of you would
Bill Gates in Car Accident
Bill Gates dies in a car accident. He finds himself in purgatory, being
sized up by God...
"Well, Bill, I'm really confused on this call; I'm not sure whether to
send you to Heaven or Hell. After all, you enormously helped society by
putting a computer in almost every home in America, yet you also created
that ghastly Windows '95. I'm going to do something I've never done
before. I'm going to let you decide where you want to go."
Bill replied, "Well, what's the difference between the two?"
God said, "I'm willing to let you visit both places briefly, if it will
help your decision."
"Fine, but where should I go first?"
"I'll leave that up to you."
"Okay then," said Bill, "let's try Hell first."
So Bill went to Hell. It was a beautiful, clean, sandy beach with clear
waters and lots of beautiful women running around, playing in the water,
laughing and frolicking about. The sun was shining; the temperature
perfect. He was very pleased.
"This is great!" he told God. "If this is hell, I REALLY want to see
"Fine" said God, and off they went.
Heaven was a place high in the clouds, with angels drifting about,
playing harps and singing. It was nice, but not as enticing as Hell.
Bill thought for a quick minute, and rendered his decision. "Hmmm. I
think I'd prefer Hell," he told God.
"Fine," retorted God, "as you desire." So Bill Gates went to Hell. Two
weeks later, God decided to check on the late billionaire to see how he
was doing in Hell. When he got there, he found Bill, shackled to a
wall, screaming amongst hot flames in dark caves, being burned and
tortured by demons.
"How's everything going?" he asked Bill.
Bill responded with his voice filled with anguish and disappointment,
"this is awful! This is nothing like the Hell I visited two weeks ago! I
can't believe this is happening! What happened to that other place, with
the beaches, the beautiful women playing in the water????"
"That was the demo," replied God.
