Bill Gates was challenged on The Ellen Show to guess the prices of common grocery store items. He misses almost every item by quite a large margin. Who would pay $22 for a $9 package of pizza rolls? Bill Gates I guess! But he guessed the price of dental floss at $4 spot on. So he doesn’t have a personal dental floss shopper?
