When I saw the thread title I thought it was gonna be about Michael Dell whom I saw face to face once at the production facility in Limerick, Ireland. We don't have the 'Dell dude' here in the UK.

>>You met the Dell himself?<<

I wouldn't say I met him. During my first uni work placement I went on what was nothing more than a jolly to the facility in Limerick. So me and the guy I was with pull up in the car park and start walking towards the reception. Mr Dell and his driver came out of the building and we exchanged hellos. Apparently he just happened to be doing a site visit on the day we turned up which was quite cool.

Has anybody seen Bill Gates' mug shot? He's such a dork. He's
smiling -- like it's a portrait or something.

Very funny. There must be camera crews just waiting around every corner just to nail the poor guy. Oh well, worse news is that Canada may make it so that you only get a *Fine* for smoking Marijuana in public... they may decriminalize it.

I thought it was illegal to smoke full stop in a public place in Canada? That's the impression I got when I was in Toronto last year.

I don't know what the big deal is (besides him beign famous). They're just giving him a slap on the wrist, he didn't buy enough to have intent to sell. It's just a slow news day, we haven't bombed Iraq yet, and North Korea hasn't made any new threats, lol.

Yes, you are correct. I don't know about Torontos provincial law, but it is a possibility that later on it will be illegal to smoke publicly Country-Wide.
