Bill Gates: Hamburgers Taste the Same When You're a Billionaire

Paul Lilly

We tend to agree with Bruno Mars that being a billionaire would frickin' rock, and so would being on the cover of Forbes Magazine. And who wouldn't like to play a game of pickup ball with the President and flush one down over top of his delegates? Travie McCoy gets it. But hey, you can take it from Bill Gates that while being rich is grand and all, it's just more of the same.

The billionaire Harvard dropout and Microsoft founder recently spoke to students and faculty at the University of Washington, in which he stressed the importance of education and how it ties into philanthropy. And then he held a Q&A session, during which time a student asked Gates how she could make herself rich, just like him.

"I can understand wanting to have millions of dollars, there's a certain freedom, meaningful freedom, that comes with that," Gates responded, according to GeekWire.com . "But once you get much beyond that, I have to tell you, it's the same hamburger. [Seattle fast food joint] Dick's has not raised their prices enough. But being ambitious is good. You just have to pick what you enjoy doing."

Until we become billionaires ourselves, we'll have to take his word for it. In the meantime, there's always In-N-Out and Five Guys, if you happen to live near either one.
