Hey Moneybags!

This website shows your own personalized place in the world income distribution.

It's simultaneously fun and unsettling.

If you put your annual salary as $0, you get:

You're in the TOP 17.62%
richest people in the world!

You are the 1,057,270,585 richest person in the world!

Negative numbers give the same result.

And if you put $350,000, or $1,200,000, or pretty much any other large positive number, you get "top 1%" and "#107,565"

It's a hoax....

even if you are making $1000 a year you are told to buy a $2400 television to help some poor person in another country. Now that's fiscal responsibility.

plus (ahem) income != wealth

I put in $1/year and learned that three billion folks live on less than $2/day. Will they share their wealth in turn?

Luckily they don't expect me to give up my TV.
