Where you you rank?

Found this link on a bulletin board I frequent. You plug in your annual income (in a few select denominations) and it'll tell you what income percentile you're in on a global basis. It'll also tell you how many people on earth are poorer than you.


I'm not sure what their formula is. Their numbers are based on the assumption that there are 6 billion people on earth. Not sure what they mean when they say that the average income worldwide is $5,000 a year. Seems kind of high to me.

Anyway, check it out. It'll give you some perspective. Maybe those two extra hazelnut latt├ęs a week don't really matter, in the grand scheme of things?

Ah, heck! Who am I kidding? Of course, they do!
