Bill Gates went on The Colbert Report to talk about how polio will be wiped off the planet in another 6 years. This will be only the second time in human history that a disease has been eradicated.
Last year around 250 people were hit with polio. The good news is that in 2011 there were 600 cases of polio so the number of cases are in major decline.
Gates pointed out in the interview that he does not mind being less “cooler” than Steve Jobs and admitted to being a bigger geek than him. Check out the video below:
