Yup, Bill Gates would pick up a $100 bill if it was on the ground

Posted Feb 10, 2014

Bill Gates did an Ask Me Anything (AMA) question-and-answer session on Reddit today. The promo video above was released prior to the AMA. The promo video answers a few teaser questions.

One of the questions he was asked is if he saw a $100 billion the ground, would he pick it up? Bill Gates currently makes over $114 per second that he is alive so it may be a poor investment if he stopped and picked up a $100 bill if he found it on the ground.

Gates said he would pick it up though. He said “all my thoughts about money were formed at a time when $100 really was a substantial amount of money. If it’s lying there, maybe it belongs to somebody and you ought to find it for them and return it to them.” Otherwise he would give the $100 bill to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
