Bill Gates Makes a Surprisingly Comfortable 'Daily Show' Appearance

Bill Gates hasn't exactly helped to dispel the 'Revenge of the Nerds' stereotype of dorks as socially awkward, outcast bookworms with horrid fashion sense. When the dork extraordinaire first appeared on 'The Daily Show' with Jon Stewart in 2007, he only acerbated that ridiculously geeky and uncomfortable public image.

Perhaps his bohemian globetrotting has served as a journey of self discovery, because the Microsoft chairman returned to the show this week looking bronzed, affable, and even a little snarky. During the entertaining interview, Gates addresses his early experiences on Twitter, loving robots, and, of course, Microsoft. He primarily discusses the direction of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, though, which he says will focus primarily on global food and crop shortages, as well as domestic education issues.

Check the video for the full discussion, during which Gates astoundingly takes an actually witty and humorous shot at Stewart. Either someone has hired a life coach, or that was actually an emotionally programmed robo-Bill. [From: The Huffington Post]
