    LOL, I've heard theories that Bill Gates has Asperger's syndrome, but that signature totally clinches it. Look at that jerky L! Looks like something I'd write :eek:

    Does that high auction price mean the Xbox is immune to the rings of death? Can you imagine shipping it back to them to get fixed?

    First thing I thought when seeing that signature:

    "That doesn't look like the signature of one of the richest people on the planet; that looks like the signature of a total nerd."

    I figured it'd be some nearly-incomprehensible assortment of swoops and loops and you'd barely make out the B and the G let alone the rest of the letters in the man's name. But no...all nerd-like and legible. ;) LOL

    (Then again I guess technically, the man IS a nerd. :D a RICH NERD at that.)

    Actually, and I am not being gratuitously nasty, it looks very uneducated. I wonder what the rest of his handwriting would reveal… A very odd "G" as well…

    Mind, who am I to comment? Imagine the documents that have been signed with that unformed hand… *sigh* :eek:

    well i guess you discribed my signature ... too bad i don't have the money to back it up
    (actually on most documents the place reserved for signature is way to small either in length or height)

    Yes, but a cursive 'G' is supposed to look very similar to that (or joined-up writing, for the folks in the UK. - learned via Wikipedia ;)).
