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.

  4. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
