The co-founder of Microsoft earns 250 dollars every second - shocking fact isn't it?

This is somewhere around 20 million dollars on a daily basis, and a staggering 7.8 billion dollars per year! Wow, that’s rich! If he dropped a thousand dollars, it literally takes him four seconds to actually earn them back. It would be a waste of time to pick it up in the first place.

If you changed all of Gates’ money to one pound notes, you could build a road from the Earth to the Moon 14 times back and forth! He is worth 76 billion dollars at the moment. He has been at the helm of the world’s richest list for fifteen of the last 20 years. However, he’s actually a nice guy and he donated almost 30 billion to various charities, groups of people in need and other helpful campaigns.
