    Well I am not Rich Douglas, so I am not Rich. :) Ha Ha. That felt good on a Friday. Just joking Rich. Well, I make 31K a year and I have to teach at various schools to pay for grad school. I am just making it.

    the have and have nots

    I tried $1 a day, the global poverty line. Still nearly 15% of the world is poorer than me.

    I tried $5 a day. I am now in the top 20% of the world.

    A yearly salary at my country's (Britain) minimum wage (£5.15ph) - top 11.4%

    Well, it seems that I'm the 838,499,354th richest person in the world (top 13.97%) and there are 5,161,500,646 people poorer than me. This on the basis of making $566/month ($6,692/year) in disability income per manic-depression. They say that $6,692/year comes to $4.64/hour, which assumes a 27.73 hour work week. Interesting.

    Look at the bright side, Ted. What you get because you struggle manfully and bravely with a very difficult illness is about what some of us got paid when we were grad assistants. I think that says something about the psychopathology of grad school but I'm not sure what it is.
    Best wishes from the rural proletariat,

    You are in the top 0.624% richest people in the world.
    There are 5,962,556,435 people poorer than you.
    How do you feel about that? A bit richer we hope. Please consider donating just a small amount to help some of the poorest people in the world. Many of their lives could be improved dramatically or even saved if you donate just one hour's salary (approx $66.66)

    Oh, and in case you’re interested you are the 37,443,565 richest person in the world.

    Wow - and to think I can barely afford my modest 4 bd/3ba Silicon Valley Home

    I teach in a private school and make a less than satisfactory income. (Good thing I don't teach for the money :p ) . I wouldn't want to try to live on it alone. Here is me and me alone:

    You are in the top 7.22% richest people in the world.

    There are 5,566,727,941 people poorer than you.

    I also did our combine family income -- but my husband makes 7 times what I make so that made us really look mmmmm obscenely rich. AND yet with three of us in school . . .

    quite the calculation.. I put in my salary and it showed my hourly wage as being $23 more than what it actually is! ..adjusting the salary to reflect what I make an hour puts me in the top 10% .... and yet I work to pay off the bank!

    crazy world....
