Line up to meet Bill Gates (he's dreamy)

Don't even act like some of you wouldn't line up for this kind of thing. I, for one, would just love to school the one and only Bill Gates on his own console. Gamers lining up for the midnight mayhem will get that opportunity via the Bellevue Best Buy. The Microsoft founder will be  showing up around 11:00 to hand out the first Xbox 360 and is expected to hang around and get his game on with the fans. So if you're in the area and want to stick it to the man, drop by the local Best Buy and see what kind of damage you can do.

I wonder what his high score for Geometry Wars is...

[Thanks, Dennis.

3. I love that you're using Bill's old "Tiger Beat" picture. With that pose, I'm surprised that it really didn't end up in such a mag XD Who wouldn't want to meet that?

4. Bellevue huh?

That's just 15 minutes from right here in downtown Seattle.

Hmmm... Just think about how much money he is going to make in the time he "sits around and plays xbox", meanwhile, half the world can't yet afford one.

Damn you bill! He should be giving them out for free, then i'd be down there.

7. Dear Neko Tsukimi,

The only bunch of people who would want to meet Bill Gates with a pose like that are the Microsoft fanboys from the YMCA. Or NAMBLA. Or the Ay-G Ride-Pay....
