Next time you savor a McDonald’s french fry, remember to thank Bill Gates for the tasty spud.
As reported in The Post, the soon-to-be single computer magnate happens to own more farmland than anyone else in the United States. Known for loving fast food – though his burger of choice comes from the Washington-based chainlet Burgermaster – Gates, according to NBC, grows potatoes for McDonald’s in fields so vast they can be scoped from outer space.
Though Gates has focused his energies on saving our climate, he has made clear that the tater patches are strictly money-making operations.
“My investment group chose to do this,” stated Farmer Bill during an AMA on Reddit. “It is not connected to climate.”
Considering that Gates is said to own 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 the potato haul. Gates, the fourth-richest person in the world, married his impending ex, Melinda, without a prenuptial agreement, so they will be splitting property via a so-called “separation contract.”
No word on whether or not she will soon reign as McDonald’s potato queen.Filed under bill gates , celebrity divorces , french fries , mcdonalds , melinda gates , 6/11/21

A group of climate protesters were taken into custody for trespassing outside Sen. Ted Cruz’s home in Houston — after they marched 400 miles to get there, refused to leave and “chose to be arrested,” according to law enforcement.
The eight who were arrested were part of a larger group of about 70 people protesting about climate change Monday morning.
“The large majority of the group are extremely peaceful out there expressing the First Amendment rights to protest against climate change,” Assistant Houston Police Chief Ban Tien said in a video posted on Facebook. “Unfortunately, there was a small group who were actually trespassing on private property in front of the senator’s residence.”
He said police warned the group a number of times to stay on the sidewalk and not go near Cruz’s home, but they refused.
“As such, that particular group — roughly eight individuals — still refused to leave and we finally gave one final warning and those individuals still refused to leave,” Tien said. “We explained to them the fact that they were violating a trespassing law. They acknowledged they understood and they chose to be arrested.”
A Texas Tribune reporter tweeted that the group of protesters – part of the Sunrise Movement – had marched 400 miles from New Orleans to Houston to raise awareness of the effects of climate change.

They gathered outside of Cruz’s home, calling for President Biden to stop negotiating with Republicans and pass Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “civilian climate corps plan,” Erin Douglas posted on her account.
Some of the protesters stood on Cruz’s lawn and shouted, “Whose side are you on?”Filed under climate change , houston , protesters , ted cruz , 6/22/21
