I'm not sure in what context Gates stated this (i.e., flip or a sudden
stroke of altruism.) Also, he could reconsider his current views on death,
in which case he would then reconsider giving away *all* his money. If
comes to the conclusion that death is not necessary - valuing living
indefinitely; he just might invest his money in extending lifespans.
