Idle query: How much did the Gates Foundation have to give away to get bumped out of the #1 spot?

Marshall, my father used to tell people he was working on his second million ... having given up on the first :(

Come to think of it... What's the difference between a rich billionaire and a garden-variety rich person? Or do they have a separate list for rich trillionaires? Do yen count?

$25 billion (US). At his highest level, he was worth $106 billion (FYI).

LOL

I'm having the same success.

>my father used to tell people he was working on his second million ... having given up on the first

LOL

It reminds me of the saying of a UK TV show, Only Fools and Horses, where the character of Del Boy used to say to his younger brother, "This time next year we'll be millionaires!"
