Jeff Bezos’ bank account now has more zeros than a LARPing convention, as it’s being reported by Forbes that Amazon’s head honcho has become the first EVER $200 billion man.

For context, that is 200,000,000,000, or 200,000 million, or 2.000 x 1011.

Amazon’s stock perked up 2% as of Wednesday afternoon fueled by the change in consumer habits as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, and in turn, bumped Bezos’ net worth up by $4.9 billion.

As it stands today, the 56-year-old is worth a record $204.6 billion, almost $90 billion more than the world’s second-richest person, Bill Gates (currently worth $116.1 billion), and double that of newly-minted centibillionaire Elon Musk.

Two hundred billion is nearly impossible to contextualized, so think of it like this:

According to Research Maniacs, if you saved $100,000 per year, it would take you 2,000,000 years to save 200 billion dollars. If you saved $10,000 every single day, then it would only take you 54,795 years to reach Bezos status.

Bezos could give ever American $609, and every person on the planet $26.

The median house price in America is $320,000. Bezos could purchase 625,000 of them.

Bernie Sanders’ bill to levy a 60% tax on billionaires’ pandemic gains would raise $55 billion from Bezos alone.

Bezos’ cartoonish net worth has garnered some expected criticism from those who believe the disparity in this country is too stark.

Hey Jeff, my Venmo’s open you coward.
