From an email making the rounds in 2008. Apparently there was no such press release from General Motors, and the remarks attributed to Bill Gates were apparently a variation on something he said in 1997. Still, it's hilarious.

Gates vs. GM. For all of us who feel only the deepest love and affection
for the way computers have enhanced our lives, read on. 

 
At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer
industry with the auto industry and stated, "If GM had kept up with technology like 
the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles 
to the gallon."   

In response to Bill’s comments, General Motors issued a press release stating:
 
If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the 
following characteristics:
 
1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash........ Twice a day. 

2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a new car.

3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would
have to pull to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart 
it, and reopen the windows before you could continue. For some reason you would 
simply accept this. 
 
4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your 
car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall 
the engine.

5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five
times as fast and twice as easy to drive - but would run on only five percent of 
the roads. 

6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be replaced 
by a single "This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation" warning light. 

7. The airbag system would ask "Are you sure?" before deploying. 

8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and 
refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the 
key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna. 

9. Every time a new car was introduced, car buyers would have to learn how to drive 
all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner 
as the old car. 
 
10. You'd have to press the "Start" button to turn the engine off.

That's hilarious David!

Padre Pio used to tell a story: 

"One day Our Lord while making rounds of Paradise saw some strange faces. He asked Peter, “Who let these people in?”

Peter:  “It wasn’t me.” 

The Lord: “But you have the key.” 

Peter: “There is nothing I can do about it, and nothing you can do either.” 

The Lord: “What do you mean?”  

“It's your mother. Every time she finds my back turned, she opens the gate and lets somebody in.”

How did you find a picture of Alexandria ocasio cortez cooking?  lolololol
