Forbes List is out

This’ll make you sick, for which we only apologise. Forbes have published a list of the richest people in America and the jump-out story is that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg now has more pennies in the bank that Apple CEO Steve Jobs and News Corps Rupert Murdoch *throws up*.

According to the Forbes List Mark Lucky-Bugger is now 35th richest human in the US with a staggering $6.9bn (£4bn), while pathetically lagging behind like an asthmatic weezer on sports day at number 42 is Jobs with a meagre $6.1bn, followed by Murdoch with $6.2bn.

It really is an amazing story for 26 year-old Lucky-Bugger who only started Facebook five years ago. In fact it’s such an amazing story a movie about it is just about to be released. It's called The Social Network and will be out in multiplexes next month, it's directed by the always awesome David Fincher.

As if you couldn’t have guessed, Bill Gates is the richest man in America for the 17th year running. $54bn give or take a dollar or two.
