Billionaires are the most evil fucking parasites on the planet. So why does the media fawn over them?
that sweet advertising money they have, and easy clickbait which increases their ad rates.
@pzmyers think Bill Gates sooner has a "net worth" of 100G$, not million. (presumably highly stock price dependent)
Presumably also have a lot of say(if not pretty much full say) Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, 50G$
Also money is spend by substracting a number from an entry in one table, and adding that number to another table, modulo some stuff against accidents/for security.
@pzmyers So er, how much *does* one need to invest to get a viable corona research group?
I am all for shitting on billionaires, but it isn't clear from your post what exactly they should be doing.
I would prefer a society where nobody can get so rich that they can personally fund a corona research group.
