Video: Bill Gates leaps over a chair in a single bound…is he the greatest athlete who never was?

Bill Gates is many things. He is rich. He is a renowned philanthropist. He made the personal computer as ubiquitous as the kitchen sink.

But did you know that Bill Gates, in addition to his supreme intellect and drive for success, also had freakish athletic ability?

It’s true. Watch:

Amazing, right?

Who knew that this scrawny little white boy computer geek could LEAP OVER AN M-F’ING CHAIR!?

Sure, he doesn’t clear the chair by much. But still. An impressive feat from a guy most people would consider closer to Stephen Hawking than Stephen Jackson.

If Gates had only indulged his inner athlete, rather than making the lucrative but – let’s be honest – pretty boring choice of becoming an icon and one of the richest men in the world, he could have been like the computer nerd version of Bo Jackson: designing operating systems by day…dunking over fools by night!

Damn you and your selfish pursuit of technological advancement and obscene wealth accumulation Gates. What a waste.
