It Has to be a Conspiracy if it Involves Bill Gates, Right?

Why, What’s the problem with it being done in Wyoming?

It actually appears you're just intentially trying to incite a confrontational response here with your conspiracy title rashavarek?
It’s their money, if they want to invest in new safer energy technology, all the power to them.

it’s interesting that my earlier post was removed, yet yours remain.

The lack of a satire or parody font in the OP seems to have led to some confusion.

So True,

Over on /reddit we use /s to indicate sarcasm or snark. Perhaps we should institute that here?

There's a difference between sarcasm and nonsense...

"the use of irony to mock or convey contempt."

"spoken or written words that have no meaning or make no sense."

I'd say the title to this thread was nonsense...possibly it was an attempt at irony, but fell short...

That doesn't matter; it's not the point.

The title infers that Bill Gates has been the subject of many conspiracy theories...and that that has been previously discussed here.... Neither is true to my knowledge....therefore it's nonsense...

I think we all know SE's smart enough to make the connection.

A pointless post is not a point in upon itself... with the exception of being pointless.

So you're saying Tornado is the one that doesn't get the point....and that you're smarter than he is by default...?
