The 9th richest man in the world, and some others.

Make a fist and extend your arm to a 45 degree angle and then pull your elbow next your body while saying Ka Shing!

According to Forbes’ 2007 list of world billionaires, Li Ka Shing is number nine, with ~$23 billion. He’s probably pretty happy to be a billionaire, and his name sounds like money. That’s pretty awesome.

Slim? I’d never heard of this guy, but apparently, with $53.1 billion, he’s number 2. Last year he was at number 3, so good for him. A gain of $20,000,000,000 since last year has got to feel pretty nice, but clinching the number two spot is what it’s really all about.

Number 4 on the list is Ingvar! You know, the IKEA guy. A lot of people make jokes about IKEA, but I really can’t think of any right now, so I’ll just leave it a “Congrats!” to Ingvar for being so god damned rich.

Besides Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, I really didnt know what to expect from Forbe’s list. What’s most ridiculous about all of this is that the combined net worth of the 2007 list is $3.5 trillion, which is a freakish $900 billion increase from 2006. That makes me feel weird.
