10 Yetis just missed out on Forbes Rich List. Just.

The big news today is that of Bill Gates' descent from the 'richest man in the world' top spot that he has held for an astonishing 13 years. He would have been as rich or richer than friend and Berkshire Hathaway owner Warren Buffett (who is now number 1) had Microsoft not made their bid for Yahoo at the beginning of Feb.

L'Oreal clearly works well for her. Is she worth it though?

Liliane Bettencourt, is the world's richest woman thanks to her controlling (and inherited...) stake in L'Oreal, with a fortune of $22.9billion, making her 17th on the Forbes List overall. I don't resent people born into wealth. Honestly... envy, envy, envy.

Ah well, there's always next year for us!
