Bill Gates: The Makings of a Great Nerd

You must have heard the news by now. Bill Gates has officially retired from Microsoft.

For those who have yet to experience what a computer is, Bill gates is one of the most powerful, successful, richest & nerdiest person alive.

He stands as the epitome of all nerdiness. He has single-handedly revolutionarise not only the PC industry, but more importantly, the image & stature of the nerds.

Most nerds never really had it easy. Despite their genuises, most of them are social outcasts & they find difficulty fitting into society.

But then one day, this sexy dude came along, & all hell broke loose.

The word sexy has always been beyond six degrees of separation with the word nerd. The last thing you'd ever thought of when you hear nerd is sexy. They just don't go well together. It defies all possible human logic.

Depending on how you look at it, traditionally, Lots of money/success/power/fame = Sexy. So you see, the word nerd is never in the equation.

But Bill Gates changed all that. He brought these two words close to two degrees of separation. Nerd = Computers = Lots of money/success/power/fame = Sexy

Goodbye Bill Gates. We shall miss you. We will always remember that because of you, the nerds are sexy today.

Watch the Microsoft farewell video. See Bill workout with Matthew McConaughey & raps with JayZ.

Watch also this funny little David Letterman farewell spoof clip.
