How Rich are You?

My family are in the to 0.75% of the world!! I put my family's net income, since I have a part-time job at a paltry minimum wage.

By myself, I'm still in the top 13%

Maybe this will put some things into perspective for you, it sure did for me. I realize how rich i actually am, and how lucky I am to live in Canada, or a first world country for that matter.

But anyway, this is just for fun! Post your results!

Top 11% but somehow I imagine the lower 75% are all in China and 3rd world countries

I had to laugh at the site - but in a nice way - because along with the results comes a bit of guilt to help out those in need. I don't mind because I already do that - just not with 'Share'.

I'd post the results but my guilt forbids me. Gentle grin.
Hmmm ... in real life, my 'guilt' wouldn't bug me a bit as in Canada I'd be down toward the other end of the scale.

Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

0.001, but anyone who makes like at least 26k a year would be in the 1 percentile.

It's normally not polite to ask how much money someone have. But never mind that.
That site is pretty cool too bad I can't calculate mine. There's no NZ currency.

I hate those ads/sites/commercials that try to guilt trip you into donating money.

Anyway, why can't I get beyond the 107,565 richest person in U.S.A. money, even when I claim I have 50 bil? I think that would make me the richest person :\. Or pretty darn close to Bill Gates.
When I'm asking for help, please explain, in detail, every step. Thank you :).
I have nightmares about computer glitches and bugs.

Being a student I don't have a job, but I did do some gardening for a week, getting 100.
That puts me in the TOP 93.53% richest people in the world.
I'm ranked as the 5,612,262,858 richest person in the world.

Arrrghh, the dilemma ... new HD TV or schooling for an entire generation of school children in an Angolan village. I fear this site is trying to make me feel guilty ...

If you have 2k cash you are in the top 2% in the world!

I have close to that now but not for long sadly I have to pay taxes on my car, by new rims and 2 new tires plus I just bought a new phone.
Oh well I am still in the top 10% of the world.
