Kinda sad to see that the freaking person who came up with Beanie Babies is 87th on the list.

Damn I wish I had just one great idea like that to cash in on the billions waiting for me :)

I still have plenty of time though ;)

And yes, the Walton family is now the richest in the world.

It is because when Mr. Walton died he splict his 100+ billion between his 5 children, so ~ 20+ billion each. :eek:

It is funny though, that Mr. Walton, when he dies was still living in his very old house and driving his very old used pickup truck. My kinda guy, didn't flaunt or use his wealth for anything. :thumbsup:

Btw - I have met the 3 of the Walton's on the list, as well has Mr. Perot. Not that it counts for shit ;)

I guess working for PepsiCo has gotten me some very high up exposure to the world :)

Wanna see depression in "real time"?

To make it feel even worse, select a name from the drop down list and run the 2 timers in tandem.

HAHAh damn thats upsetting to watch. I see Lou Gerstner on that list. He is a member at our country club. Great guy to play golf with, just a dick to all the workers and really really cheap for what he has.

BTW this site does not include stock options, Which would make some of these guys values 10+X more

I should write a letter to each one of those people and ask them to send me 1% of their income.

I'd be a made man.
