Bono Calls Himself An "Insufferable Jumped-Up Jesus"
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.28.2013



NME reports that Bono called himself an "insufferable jumped-up Jesus" during a speech about world poverty. He also described himself as a "nerd" while at the TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) conference (which had Bill Gates in the audience) in Southern California. He mentioned that he thought technology could eliminate extreme poverty by 2030.

He said: "Forget the rock opera. Forget the bombast. The only thing singing today is the facts. I have truly embraced my inner nerd. Exit the rock star. Enter the evidence-based activist. The factavist."

He added that more people with AIDS are getting life-saving treatment and deaths from Malaria have dropped. He also said the child mortality rate has dropped and 7,256 fewer children die each day than they did ten years ago.

He said: "The rate is still too high, but it is mind-blowing, heart-stopping stuff. If we get to the Zero Zone, for number crunchers like us, that is the erogenous zone. I am sexually aroused by the collating of data.""

He said that 2030 isn't as far away as some may think, and joked it was "only three Rolling Stone farewell concerts away". He said his goal would only be hit if people continue to tell their governments to invest in technology and research on how to handle world poverty.

He recently revealed that U2's 13th album, 10 Reasons to Exist, won't be released until it's completely ready, although they are currently working on it.
