Everyone in the US realizes that we’re rich, but it’s fun once in a while to take a look at the numbers.
- Last year I qualified as the 817,000,000th richest person in the world, to be in the top 14% of the world, without having graduated highschool at that time.
- To be in the top one (1) percentile, you must earn 47,500 dollars in a year.
- The middle 50% made $850 dollars last year.
- 9% of people, hundreds of millions, lived on less than a dollar a day.
You should definitely check out www.GlobalRichList.com and play around with the numbers yourself.

so I realized that I am really more motivated to produce content about USC and living there. But at some point I’d like to pursue this blog, so if you’re reading this: someday it will be interesting. But right now, I’m blogging at USCLife.wordpress.com which will have current information on there.

Time to blog about the way the world oughta be.
So I show up in Maxcy dorm this morning to be greeted by
This guy, Harris Pastides. Well I introduced myself, hi I’m stephen etc. And he says: “we’re really glad to have you at the college, I’m president of the University.”
You’re president? Woah! So the story gets better when he and his wife are totally down for taking a rug and 50 pound luggage up 3 floors of stairs to my room. Needless to say, I’m a fan.
Then it’s time for “First Night Carolina,” a freshman event where everyone gets together and gets pepped up for the year. So the little guy to your left is adoringly named: “Cocky.”
Cocky? Anyway the standard cheer for any gameCOCK is: “gooooo COCKS” (embarrassing at all?) lol it’s not bad, because if 10,000 other people cheer at the same time, the weirdness sorta disappears, at least a little bit.
Anyway my riff begins when I show up on time, leave on time, and get to the stadium…on time. Well for the next HOUR I watched people file in, all the while seated on the deliciously comfy bleachers. Then the DVD doesn’t work. Why!? Well that’s why we have tomorrow.

This is the epitome of “oops, I missed the point”

- Mozilla Firefox
These companies are more known for the products, but keep customers based on their exceptional experience. For example: Skype has reinvented VoIP (Voice over IP) with a user interface that works for everyone.
Bonus: Pandora Radio gets props for rethinking radio, they weren’t the first, but they’re in my experience the best.
