God and Gates
Bill Gates meets God
Well, Bill," said God, "I'm really confused on this one.
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 the world, and yet you created that ghastly Windows.
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 thanks, God. What's the difference between the two?"
God said, "You take a peek at both places briefly it will help you decide.
Shall we look at Hell first?"
"Sure" said Bill, "Let's go!"
Bill was amazed! He saw a clean, white sandy beach with clear waters.
There were thousands of beautiful men and women running around, playing in
the water, laughing and frolicking about. The sun was shining and the
temperature was perfect.
"This is great!" said Bill. "If this is Hell, I can't wait to see heaven."
God replied, "Let's go!" and so off they went to Heaven. Bill saw puffy
white clouds in a beautiful blue sky with angels drifting about playing
harps and singing. It was nice, but surely not as enticing as Hell.
Bill Gates thought for only a brief moment and rendered his decision.
"God, I do believe I would like to go to Hell."
"As you desire," said God.
Two weeks later, God decided to check up on the late billionaire to see how
things were going.
He found Bill Gates shackled to wall, screaming amongst the hot flames in
a dark cave. He was being burned and tortured by demons.
How ya doin', Bill?" asked God.
Bill responded with anguish and despair, "This is awful! This is not what
I expected at all! What happened to the beach and the beautiful women
playing in the water?"
"Oh THAT!" said God. "That was the screen-saver."
