    Looks like Bill gates is no longer the worlds richest man.
    It is now the owner of Ikea who is 8 billion dollars richer than Bill Gates :(
    Im a bill gates fan, so I like to see him regain that spot.
    Maybe his new msn search engine will see him take back his lead.

    World's Richest Man is not Bill Gates? The Ikea man would have to have $64 Billion to do that! And have gained it in such a short time. Where did you get this information?

    Wow - actually he has been superseeded by 'Robson Walton'. He is the owner of supermarket chains Wal-Mart and Asda, and has amassed a fortune worth £45.3bn - £8bn more than Bill Gates.

    Pretty Scary Stuff.

    Won't take him long to put that way back up there - and it is only speculation right now so it may just be somebody being stupid.

    I stand corrected, I heard that on the radio and the news, but I guess they just report anything. Apparently it was a swedish periodical that made this claim, using a currency fluctuation as the basis. Also the figures I quoted were Australian dollars.
    Also apparently the Ikea founder donated his company to some trust.
    Looks like Bill Gates may still be the richest man after all according to this list in the USA today site which was updated 27 feb 04.

    I always joke and say people born on the 28th october are super intelligent, and those born close to that are really smart as well, but what further proof could I possibly need.
    Worlds richest man born on the 28th October.

    At least I'm a Scorpio... meaning I'm super intelligent, and a sexual dynamo!!!

    P.S. Hello ladies :p

    Hmm... not a single offer. Must have been that "world's poorest man" thing.

    LOL! You're a Libran alright, and I hope you're female. Coz the male ones are either too sensitive when it comes to love and sentimental issues, or downright arrogant when it comes to playing in the fields :p

    Later,
