Perhaps they could take up another hobby if they no longer enjoy gardening.

I heard it was because he named his company after his penis.

I could never work out what attracted Melinda to get married to the billionaire Bill Gates?

1) He made his first billion by 1987 when they met.

2) It was a joke, or a re-use of an old joke.

Until he returned and started donating his money to good causes, Gates was seem as the bad guy. Monopolistic business practices, crushing competitors, using his money and influence with Washington, buggy new software, using Microsoft weight to force smaller developers to conform or be excluded etc etc etc. 20 years ago, Bill Gates was slaged off relentlessly.

Even in retirement his good activities are not so pure:

For 50 bill I’d smash half of Nz, I’d have enough then to fund a new ID, some hypnotherapy, and a new penis.

I’d imagine it would be a new arse hole rather than penis.

Rookie error! I've always been dead gullible.

I'm relieved to hear he's not going to do it. Or am I being gullible again? 🤔

This does beg the question, Epstein constantly integrated himself with the rich, famous and powerful. While I'm sure some of them knew nothing about his foul behaviours, I'm sure plenty did and plenty heard rumors but ignored them anyway.

It could be anything right? Epstein was notoriously great at trading information, well before suspicions were publicly aired.
