What .00002% Of Jeff Bezos' Net Worth Could Buy Me

As of November 16, 2019, CNN reports that Jeff Bezos now has a net worth of $108.7 billion dollars which is just under Bill Gates' net income of $110 billion dollars. This amount of money is simply unfathomable for any one person to possess, and it can be sickening to think about, especially when in October of 2018, 11.8% of the United States population was still using food stamps to buy basic groceries for them and their families. Intrigued yet? Check this out. Jeff Bezos is "20% richer than the British monarchy." Jeff Bezos' net worth is "the equivalent to the entire Slovakia GDP." Jeff Bezos' "net worth is greater than the GDP of Iceland, Afghanistan, and Costa Rica — combined." So let me put this into greater perspective for you. A mere .00002% of Jeff Bezos' $108.7 billion dollar net worth is $21,740 dollars. Go ahead, look at that figure again. That could provide a lot of people opportunities and essentials that they are currently surviving without.

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... a whole year of tuition at my college (and my books)

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... a new 2013 Ford Fusion

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... 5 years worth of health insurance premiums in my state

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... school lunches for about 9,000 elementary students

The average cost for an elementary school lunch is just $2.48, and this small number is causing a lot of frustrations lately because parents struggle to pay this, or forget to put money in their child's account and their child is often refused lunch.

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... treatment for a concussion and the ambulance ride to get there (my 2013 Ford Fusion is in the shop after hitting a Michigan pothole.)

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... 70 new laptops (found on Amazon.com)

So, I probably don't need 70 new laptops, but the thought is there.

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... 4 years worth of my groceries

That is assuming that I spend roughly $100 dollars worth of groceries per week.

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... 5 years worth of out-of-pocket diabetic costs

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... 15 years of Venti Cafe Lattes every day from Starbucks

But let's be honest, I'm more of a caramel macchiato kind of guy anyway.

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... 2,222 packs of frozen meatballs from IKEA

My grandmother would be thrilled, now she can make her famous Christmas meatballs for the next 1,000 years! (Assuming she is using 2 bags per Christmas meal).

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... 40 Death star Lego kits

That is assuming that each kit is about $553 dollars and I was really bored...for a while.

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... 22,183 cans of Campbell's Condensed Chicken Noodle Soup

I've never really been a Ramen Noodle kind of guy, I wanted to step up the class a bit.

.00002% of Jeff Bezos' net worth could buy me... 100 pit stage left V.I.P. tickets to the Ariana Grande World Tour Concert on December 1st, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in Jacksonville, Florida

I use Venmo.

Now, these may seem a little crazy right? Like, why in the hell would I need 2,222 packs of frozen meatballs from IKEA, 15 years of Starbucks Venti Cafe Lattes or 22,183 cans of chicken noodle soup? But what is even crazier is that one man possesses more money than the entire GDP of three countries combined. Now, who's crazy? But here is the real kicker: Amazon paid $0 in federal taxes this past year. A company that is valued at more than $800 billion paid ZERO in taxes. Doesn't that seem odd to you?

"I love money. I love everything about it. I bought some pretty good stuff. Got me a $300 pair of socks. Got a fur sink. An electric dog polisher. A gasoline-powered turtleneck sweater. And, of course, I bought some dumb stuff, too." -Steve Martin

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
