Bill Gates’ House: Here’s a nice little image map of Bill Gates’ house. You can click on certain areas to get enlargements and descriptions. For instance, his pool:
The 17-by-60-foot swimming pool has an underwater music system and a floor painted in a fossil motif. Swimmers can dive under a glass wall and emerge outdoors by a terrace. Locker room off the pool has four showers and two baths.
I floated past Bill’s house while on a harbor tour in Seattle once. It was huge from the water, and I got to thinking, what if I jumped out of the boat and just swam up to shore? His property line probably doesn’t begin until the high-water mark, so could I just stand ankle-deep in the water and yell at him?
