reminder: if you made 5000 dollars a day since the year 1219 -- 800 years ago! -- you would still have less total money than Jeff Bezos made *EVERY WEEK* during 2018.

Bezos made over 1.5 billion per week that year; you would only have 1.46 billion

also 5000 a day for 500 years is still short of a billion.

every billionaire deserves the guillotine.

for a neat sense of scale: 1 million seconds ago was 11 days. 1 billion seconds ago was 1987. 100 billion seconds ago was 1151 BCE.

so that means you could make a dollar per second -- or 86,400 dollars per day -- since the beginning of the Mayan calendar in 1102 BCE. And still have less money than Bezos does, even after his divorce.

@jacethechicken Okay I am genuinely interested in this and never dared to ask before: Is this what he personally has, as an "employee" (in BIG quotes) of Amazon, or is that something he still has to put some of to the wages (that are way too low)?

I mean, either way, it's absurd. But I don't think my brain has the capacity to grasp the first option.
