Can you make the list?

Damn, my birthday is in March! According to Forbes magazine more American billionaires were born in the fall than in any other season…the most prominent month being September. But wait, I still have a chance. They also say if your parents were number crunchers that also make your odds better. Sweet…my dad was an accountant and my mom did some bookkeeping. Let’s see, the list goes on-

Tech Titans who dropped out of college – I dropped out of college; now I’m 2 for 3 on this “common attributes of billionaires” list.  Let’s move on…

Skull and Bones – I guess this is some kind of secret society…I used to be in a Bunco group if that counts? Oh well, now it’s 50/50 for me. Let’s continue-

A stint at investment bank Goldman Sachs – I just had to look up the definition of “stint” so that’s not a good sign. My odds are dropping…I think I’ll stop now on this damn list. I want to always have that hope it may happen. I still have the ability to buy a lottery ticket…cool!

One out of Ten

 I read a list in the paper yesterday and according to Forbes, the top ten earning dead celebs for 2007 are-

  • 1. Elvis Presley, $49 million
  • 2. John Lennon, $44 million
  • 3. Charles M. Schulz, $35 million
  • 4. George Harrison, $22 million
  • 5. Albert Einstein, $18 million
  • 6. Andy Warhol, $15 million
  • 7. Dr. Suess, $13 million
  • 8. Tupac Shakur, $9 million
  • 9. Marilyn Monroe, $7 million
  • 10. Steve McQueen, $6 million

First of all, who the heck is Tupac Shakur and my biggest surprise, only ONE woman? We even have a hard time competing in the afterlife. How could Steve McQueen beat out Greta Garbo, she’s even in a Madonna song.
