So many people in America dream of one day being part of the 1% of ultra-wealthy billionaires who control the vast majority of wealth throughout the world. One Tumblr user, however, was fairly certain many of the people pining after the lifestyle of a billionaire weren't completely aware of just how much money the world's wealthiest people had. The Last Meme Era told Bored Panda:

Basically I guessed that most people probably don't have a clear concept of what a billion dollars actually is, and if I could put it into practical terms that are easy to understand, people would be shocked at just how rich the world's wealthiest people are. Hopefully people might be moved to become more socially engaged if they had a better picture of how society distributes economic resources.

The Last Meme Era then began to drop some shocking facts on all of us:
