hello, thanks gain for helping me. i just had a few doubts. you said "Puff Diddly is a hip-hop star no doubt, and Bill Gates is giving away his fortune to others in need or sick.
I am not certain if Bill Gates worries about being rejected by society."

my question is if bill gates doesn't want to proove to scoity that he is waelthy or be rejected then why does he build the most expensive hosuse in america. his house is worth 200 million, and he pays 1 million for tax every year.

thnks again!!!

    I still think you are stretching it. Read this from a critique of Bill Gates:

    <<The most interesting tidbit is that both Bill and Melinda seem to have a fascination with The Great Gatsby. They once went to a costume party together dressed as Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan. And the following quotation is engraved on the ceiling of their home library: "He had come a long way to this blue lawn and his dream must have seemed so close he could hardly fail to grasp it." Gates has explained that he and his wife saw similarities between Bill's wooing of Melinda and Gatsby's pursuit of Daisy. I suppose there are also parallels between Gates's lavish home on Seattle's Lake Washington and Gatsby's mansion in West Egg, across the bay from Daisy's glittering home in East Egg.
    Still, this seems odd to me. Gatsby was a shady operator from a poor family who was pursuing a married woman, albeit one married to a brutish cad. And the next line of the book refutes the quotation Gates chose: "He did not know that [his dream] was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night." Was Gates not reading closely, or is he providing a hint that he has always been destined to overreach one day? The "dark fields of the republic" -- that's where the common folk live, isn't it? Their appointed representatives may pull Microsoft apart.>> from http://www.businessweek.com/bwdaily/dnflash/june2000/nf00613b.htm

    So goes the comparison. I am not certain much to it.
    And it does seem odd to me also, and that is what I was trying to point out to you.
