Next time you savour a McDonald's French fries, remember to thank Bill Gates for the tasty spuds!
As reported in The Post, the soon-to-be Macmillan magnate happens to own more land than anyone else in the United States. Known for loving fast food, although his Burgermaster burger of choice comes from the Washington-based chainlet Burgermaster - Gates, according to NBC News, grows potatoes for McDonald's in fields so vast they can be controlled from outer space.
Although Gates has focused his energies on saving our climate, he has made clear that the stater patches are strictly money-making operations.
My investment group chose to do this, Farmer Bill stated during an AMA on Reddit. It is not connected to climate.
Considering that Gates is said to have 269,000 acres of fertile land in 18 states, it's easy to imagine him keeping track of it all on some souped-up series of spreadsheets. If so, gangs of divorce lawyers -- including some who worked on the Jeff Bezos bust-up — have surely been scrutinizing potato haulage efforts. Melinda, the fourth richest person in the world, married his impending ex Gates without a prenuptial agreement so they will split up their properties through a so-called separation contract.
No word on whether or not she will become McDonald's potato queen soon in the food domain.
