Default Bill Gates No Longer World's Richest

According to some publications, he's been overtaken by Mexican telecommunications tycoon, Carlos Slim Helú. Helú is apparently worth $67.8 billion (thanks to his surging telecommunications stocks), while Bill Gates is worth a mere $59.2 billion.

Or in other words, if you worked a job and made $100 an hour, in order to have Helú's wealth, you'd have to work 678 million hours, or (working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without rest), you'd have to work for 77,600 years.
