Bill Gates is making cows that don’t fart

Okay, I’ve heard of Purple Cows but cows that don’t fart? Now that would make me stop and look…and smell :)

In a wide ranging interview with Ina Fried Bill replied to a question about Intellectual Ventures

Gates: That's right. We're going to make the cows that don't fart. You name it, we've got it under control.

 

It was a fun comment alongside discussion of putting the Feynman lectures online, nuclear power plant design, Google’s Chrome OS and more.

It’s been a busy week on the Bill front with a USA Today piece about controlling hurricanes and atmospheric management that was also a good read.

Anyway, non farting cows. Surely that’d have some impact on atmospheric management too? :)



  • Cows are a huge source of the gasses that are wessing with the ozone layer. Non-farting cows would likely make a difference. In theory anyway.

  • lol, nice.  What? he has so much money that he's so bored now to create non-farting cows??

  • It's almost as if the billions of humans never farted.

  • Now, THAT's innovation!

    Beat that Apple!

    =P
