Feeling poor?

In comparison to the rest of the world's population, you might not have it so bad. Find out exactly how you rank among the world's richest and poorest people. Go to http://globalrichlist.com and type in your annual income. The Web site will calculate how your income compares with that of the rest of the world.

For example, if you make $50,000 a year, you're in the top 1% of the world. If you make $25,000, you're in the top 10%. Even if you make only $5,000 a year, you're still in the top 14%.

Of course, relative incomes shouldn't be compared without also comparing relative costs of living, but if one factors in quality of life we're right back to being stinking, filthy rich.
