Sickening facts here:

Number of billionaires worldwide surged to 2,754 in 2017
Wealth-X census finds billionaires’ combined wealth increased to an all-time high of $9.2tn

A record 357 new billionaires were minted last year as the already very wealthy saw their combined fortunes soar to an all-time high of $9.2tn (£6.8tn) - more than three times the UK’s gross domestic product.

The number of billionaires worldwide increased by 14.9% to 2,754 in 2017 as the wealthy benefited from the “remarkable performances in equity markets and global economy”, according to a report by ultra-rich research firm Wealth-X.

The Wealth-X billionaire census 2018, published on Tuesday, found a “dramatic improvement” in billionaires’ assets, with their combined wealth increasing by $1.8bn – or 24% – to $9.2tn, as the very rich streak further away from the general population.
A "dramatic improvement". WTF! Who is paying for all this? :nono:

In equality in the USA? Some simple facts:

'CEOs don't want this released': US study lays bare extreme pay-ratio problem
The first comprehensive study of CEO-to-worker pay reveals an extraordinary disparity – with the highest gap approaching 5,000 to 1

The first comprehensive study of the massive pay gap between the US executive suite and average workers has found that the average CEO-to-worker pay ratio has now reached 339 to 1, with the highest gap approaching 5,000 to 1.

The study, titled Rewarding Or Hoarding?, was published on Wednesday by Minnesota’s Democratic US congressman Keith Ellison, and includes data on almost 14 million workers at 225 US companies with total annual revenues of $6.3tn.

Just the summary makes for sober reading.

In 188 of the 225 companies in the report’s database, a single chief executive’s pay could be used to pay more than 100 workers; the average worker at 219 of the 225 companies studied would need to work at least 45 years to earn what their CEO makes in one.
What a country.

Incredible fact: I'm at the perfect height for the belt loops on my pants to get caught on either the door jam plate and/or the door handle of a regulation sized door in Australia. As such, a number of my pants have a belt loop torn off and/or a larger tear where the loop attaches to the pant.

Just wait, you'll get all stooped over and crumbly as you age, then it won't happen again. See, something to look forward to! Then you get to take a nice, long dirt nap. WINNING!
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

I'm not by nature gloomy - though reading Crumpolina's posts can be a challenge to that - however it has occurred to me that there will be a number of 'last' instances and examples. For example there will in all likelihood be a last human being - assuming we don't find a way to transmit ourselves to the next iteration of the universe. There will be a last living thing on the planet and a very last planet in due course.

Incredible really but then perhaps not.

That's assuming we last till the end of the universe. That's a pretty big assumption, I'd reckon..

I was not aware that the person behind the Soviet Revolution was Nikolay Lenin and not Vladimir.
https://www.marxists.org/archive/bryant ... /lenin.htm
Vladimir Ulyanov only appeared on the death announcement in 1824, until then, it was Nikolay.
Wasn't Jacob Richter his real name?

He was Vladimir's goatee. He called it Nikolay.

He used 160 false names, may be doubles too.
