    "You're in the top 0.09% richest people in the world by income - That makes you the 6,164,998th richest person on earth by income."

    That's a pretty fancy tool.

    I mean, it says fuck all on how well you do if it counts the countries where people earn one cent a day.

    If i earn 240,000 SEK a year, (a little more than 25000 euro), it puts me in the top 1%, and that just doesn't look right.

    Like for example, a person with social WELLFARE in sweden is top 15%
    same in france, top 14% without working a single second. However, we have to take into account the overall price of life in those countries.

    Single or two working parents, either way.

    I'm not sure who you quoted. I was just referring to our area, as I saw you lived in NJ as well. I think 120k is more than enough to get by comfortably in this area with say... 3 kids but I don't think people realize just how expensive certain parts of this country are (and not just in major cities). Just as an example I pay over 10k a year in real estate taxes for my home and it's not a huge home (little over 1900 sq ft) nor comes with acres of space either. It's insane!

    I have a friend who has a house in Bayonne, who pays 15k a year in taxes. NJ taxes are quite high. 120k is a decent wage.

    120k in a country where people make 4800... is exponential.

    200k... that seems about the prices here for a 1-2 in an okay area. If you want to live in a better area though (at least in hudson county) it's going to cost you upwards of 400k, and you'd be more comfortable around 500-600k (hoboken) or 600-1.2 (downtown jc) New York you can get a decent 1 br for about 260-600

    • You’re in the top 2.94% richest people in the world by income.
    • That makes you the 196,927,650th richest person on earth by income.
    • In 1 hour you make £7.81
    • Age: 19
    • No University experience, only college (graphics/web development) but neither which I use (graphics, partly) at work.

    Work at a Social Network site (which at the moment has networth of $1,000,000). No premium model at this moment (all free). On that bombshell, it's time for bed and hopefully no longer ill tomorrow...

    Yeah, it depends a lot on if you want to live in a city, a small village etc.
    The price I mentioned applies to the village where I live...in a bigger, more central located town the prices are also a lot higher.

    I mean...lol, if you want to live near my Uni, you have to pay about 650$ per month for ~20 m². Quite bad, especially for students etc.

    Well, according to that site, the richest person on the planet makes somewhere between $1,750,000,000 and $1,755,000,000 per year.

    Talk about first world problems.

    I'm not so sure that this is even remotely accurate. i make a decent salary, but there is no way i would belive that i am of the top 2.87% of the world.

    It gets you thinking about how lucky you really are, i really feel thankful after seeing this.

  19. #279
    you are in the 0.25% richest people in the world income
    that makes you the 16,529,388th richest person on earth by income.
