1:00 PM -- Yesterday at the Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) Conference, Microsoft founder Bill Gates opened his talk by siccing mosquitos on the audience, Yahoo News reports:

    "Malaria is spread by mosquitoes," Gates said while opening a jar onstage at a gathering known to attract technology kings, politicians, and Hollywood stars.

    "I brought some. Here I'll let them roam around. There is no reason only poor people should be infected."


There's no word on whether many people fled the conference screaming before Gates informed the crowd minutes later that the mosquitos in question were malaria-free.
