Yup, I suspect he does, Pops, for example . . .
Bill Gates dies in a car accident. He finds himself in front of God, who says....."Well, Bill, I'm really confused on this call; I'm not sure whether to send you to Heaven or Hell. After all, your contribution to society by putting a computer in almost every home in America is just enormous.
Yet you created that ghastly WINDOWS. I'm going to do something I've never done before. I'm going to let you decide where you want to go."
Bill replied, "Well, what's the difference between the two?" God replied "I'll let you visit both places briefly, to see if the experience will help you to decide."
"Fine, but where should I go first?"
"I'll leave that up to you."
"Okay, then," said Bill, "let's try Hell first."
So Bill went to Hell. It was a beautiful, clean, sandy beach with clear waters and lots of beautiful women running around, playing in the water, laughing and frolicking about, the sun shining, the temperature perfect.
He was very pleased. "This is great," he told God. "If this is hell, I really want to see Heaven."
"Fine," said God, and off they went.
Heaven was a place high in the clouds with angels drifting about, playing harps and singing. It was nice, but not as enticing as Hell.
Bill thought for a quick minute, and rendered this decision. "Hmmmmm....I think I'd prefer Hell!" He told God.
"Fine,"retorted God, "as you desire."
So Bill Gates went to Hell.
Two weeks later, God decided to check on the late billionaire to see how he was doing in Hell. When he got there, he found Bill, shackled to a wall screaming amongst hot flames in dark caves, being burned and tortured by demons.
"How's everything going?", he asked Bill.
Bill responded with his voice filled with anguish and disappointment. "This is awful. This is nothing like the Hell I visited two weeks ago. " I can't believe this is happening. What happened to that other place, with the beaches and beautiful women playing the water?????"
"Oh," God said, "that was Hell 3.1 This is Hell 95."
