    I was watching again, the Seinfeld / Gates ad...



    and I thought something feels odd. I thought Bill spoke in very short sentences. So I did a count.

    Bill gates had, on average, less than 2 words per line. C'mon!

    * Well, this was a nicely formatted table, but C9's retarded policy of removing formattings reduced it to this mess.

    Interesting. Perhaps the advertising agency scripted it with this in mind because Bill charges a higher rate per word than Jerry. After all, Microsoft couldn't blow their entire 300 million dollars on just one ad.

    Maybe he is like that in real person. Super short answer. Quick and clear.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Because Seinfeld is playing the annoying, jokey, talkative one. Bill Gates is a lot like the straight man, see his reaction to Seinfeld talking about wearing shoes in the shower.
