...Spend 2 million dollars every day for 75 years and still be a billionaire at the end of it. I came across a rich list that said in January 2007 Bill Gates had a net worth of around 56 BILLION dollars, that is 56 thousand million dollars. If he were to spend $2 million dollars every day for 75 years he would have about $1.2 billion left, for the kids. Of course he is 52 now, but as usual with (ridiculously) rich people they usually live quite long, so let's say he will live to 89 (and a ½) he could spend FOUR million dollars every day and he would still be able to leave the kids 1.2 BILLION dollars. I couldn't fathom just how much money that was so i thought 'how long could he spend a million dollars a day for?', it turned out to be 153 years. I am still second guessing my calculation and i have done it a few times to make sure, it is a disgusting amount of money, utterly obscene. 56 billion is 56 000 000 000, divide that by 356 days then 1 000 000 and you get 153 years. I am correct, right?
