Just how much is 59 billion?!?

I just came across an article online about the 400 richest people in America. I read the whole damn thing trying to find my name. But, alas, it wasn't there. I guess having $201.72 in the bank doesn't count....

Bill Gates has $59 BILLION! How do you even spend that kind of money??!? Have one big field day at Target? Get the Vente Starbucks? Go to the movie at night and not during the cheap price times?

I'm sure I'll never know.

Wouldn't we love to find out what that is like? Oh, the things I would do and the places I would go...

I've always said that I just want enough to be comfortable. I think "rich" would scare me. Don't know, but maybe.

At least Bill Gates donates a good deal of money to worthy charities. But I can’t imagine having anywhere near that much money. It’s mind-boggling!

I would think that after one amasses a certain wealth, more just becomes another decimal point.

Bill Gates is certainly an eccentric fellow, but I do think that he donates a lot to charity.
