Few people in the history of money have made more than a billion dollars in a single day. It’s an elite club whose sparse ranks–which you probably don’t need more than two hands to tally–are held by the biggest of the boldface hedge-funders and tech-titans, including George Soros, Jeff Bezos and, well, you guessed it, Mark Zuckerberg.
One day this past January, Zuckerberg made $6 billion in the 24 hours following a particularly rosy Facebook quarterly earnings report. That’s $250 million an hour, $4,166,667 a minute, $69,444 a second. Median American household annual income was $53,657 at last count, meaning Zuckerberg made 29% more in a single second than a typical American family makes in an entire year. Even in the winner-take-all, second-Gilded-Age we’re currently in, that’s still a lot of gravy. And in the 50 minutes average Facebook users squander each day watching sneezing baby panda videos and wondering why all of their friends seem to take more fabulous vacations than they do, Zuckerberg made more than $200 million (at least they can take solace in the fact that Zuckerberg probably takes more fabulous vacations than all of their friends combined).
