Bill Gates's Childhood Counselor to His Parents: 'Give Up'

Bill Gates and his dad, Bill Gates Sr., were on Charlie Rose last night. Continuing the story of young, bastard Bill, it's revealed at one point his psychologist told his parents, "Give up."

For more of the backstory, you should read the WSJ's piece, "Raising Bill," which details what it was like to raise the world's richest man when he was just a cocky, argumentative twelve-year-old who fought with his mother all the time. Or more simply, a prick. Bill tells Charlie Rose that the psychologist did help him change, though: "I was a little bit nicer." [Charlie Rose]
