    Going on parents, because I don't have a job: You are in the top 0,001% richest people in the world.
    Same here, it's quite depressing though...because it goes to show how much poverty there is

    It's weird how most people would say the highest and lowest (legal...) annual incomes in the UK differ greatly, yet they're still within the top 12% or so...

    On parents' income:
    "You are in the top 0,001% richest people in the world.
    You don¹t need to know any more than that (and besides our calculator can't do sums that big)."

    Inserting an approximation of my spending (including school fees, appartment rent etc.) as income:
    "You are in the top 0.751% richest people in the world.
    There are 5,954,909,735 people poorer than you."

    Pretty frightening to see it from this perspective.

    My parents income: You are in the top 5.26% richest people in the world.

    My income now (I''m only 17): You are in the top 86.66% richest people in the world. Oh, and in case you’re interested you are the 5,200,000,000 richest person in the world.

    Eeeeeee if it weren't for me mummy.....

    Incidentally, what I aim to be earning myself in 10 years time.....

    You are in the top 0.006% richest people in the world. You are the 394,765 richest person in the world. Nice.

    on my gap year in china i will earn 1500 yuan a month (appr. £115). Even this low wage in a 2nd world country works out to be within the top 14.92% and I'm richer than 5,104,649,935 people.

    my family :You are in the top 0.443% richest people in the world.
    There are 5,973,383,875 people poorer than you.
    not bad from a single parent family


    but on the money i made last year according to the tax man: You are in the top 31.51% richest people in the world.
    There are 4,108,977,556 people poorer than you.

    it does make a big diffrence and emphasises why i need my dad to survive!

    seen as thers a million peope in india...and nearly as many in china... that brings it down significantly!

    edit: i just realised my dad earns £50 an hour!! and i think my £5.33 an hour is amazing!!!

    i technically earned 57p an hour last year! oh the tax man must love me!!

    love Katy ***
