Bill Gates died of a drug overdose this morning

William Henry Gates III, Bill Gates as we knew him died at approximately 11:53am Pacific Standard Time from a cardiac arrest as the result of an apparently intentional overdose, approximately 300mg of Cyanide powder.

A cleaner at the Microsoft Campus in Redmond found Gates in a coma after consuming the cyanide powder, Gates was rushed to the Redmond District Hospital and died shortly afterwards during an operation aimed at removing fluid from his lungs in an attempt to revive him.

Born October 28, 1955 Bill Gates has been one of the most recognizable icons in the field of computing for over fifteen years, with a net worth of over $56 billion the former Microsoft CEO's death will be mourned by the world.

Suicide note apparently found with Gates' body

Yeah it is a joke, If you looked the "Suicide note" is something completely unrelated... Does the item sound real?

PS: I asked Kichimi to reply, Him and me make an awesome team (Thanks for doing that) :D

That story took like 10 mins to write, I hope it was atleast slightly believable?

By the way, April Fools!

Well, in the first second of reading it, I thought "WTF". For me, it was still March 31st because of the time zone, so I didn't think of an April Fool's joke immediately, but then I thought "This can't be real". :lol:
