Jeeeeeze, Geek! - Poem by Barry Van Allen

I feel so superior,
I am smarter than Bill Gates,
because I know what a clock is!

He and his big company,
can write the code that make computers do,
- - - what computers do,
but, apparently, he does not know ,
what a watch does yet.

There are things that vary,
from one machine to next,
but, shouldn't code consider that,
with proper questions asked?

The download will take 15 minutes,
... BUT, in 14 minutes - - -
it will take 45 ! ...
THEN 85 - - - , THEN 2 !

The good news is ...
I will live forever! ,
- - - or maybe 30 seconds!

    To Venice Angel,
    Not only did you not get it ...
    It seems that you did not get it twice,
    I would have explained about Bill Gates,
    except, you do not receive messages either!
    Strange approach.
