Steve Saunders
8/31/2015

The scene: Last Saturday, lunchtime, the interior of a shi-shi-foo-foo eatery in Manhattan's SoHo district.

Steve Saunders, turning to diner sitting on his own at adjacent table: "Hey, has anyone ever said you look like Bill Gates?"

Bill Gates: "I am Bill Gates."

Steve Saunders: "Ah. Enjoy your lunch, Mr. Gates."

The back of Bill Gates's head.

Re: Bill Gates-Gate
@Susan: It should get all the traffic. So In app Advertising revenue should be big enough incentive for anyone to do it.

Or, he could have said: Steve Saunders, turning to diner sitting on his own at adjacent table: "Hey, has anyone ever said you look like Bill Gates?" Bill Gates: "Yes. They say that all the time." -Susan

@Sarah: There should be an app for that. Scanning all Celebrity photos online in which they are dining out of home. Applying some location extraction algorithms and sharing their dining locations with the world.
