Guy Shows Just How Much Jeff Bezos Is Worth Using Grains Of Rice
An e-commerce consultant has given us all a visual interpretation of just how much Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is worth... using grains of rice:
Humphrey Yang, 32, took it upon himself to show what $100,000 (£78,000), $1 million (£780,000) and $1 billion (£780m) looked like, with one single grain of rice representing $100,000.
He then put the three figures against the net worth of Jeff Bezos (at the time of filming), which was a staggering $122 billion (£95bn) and it's very effective.
In the videos, Yang said: "So my Saturday night consisted of counting 10,000 grains of rice one by one just to show you guys how much a billion dollars is."
He went on to point out what a Lamborghini and a $5 million house would look like, saying: "I just bought you like, a Lamborghini right here and I didn't even notice it was gone.
"Here's a $5 million house in California and... oh look, I still have all this money."

In the second video, Zang went on to say: "A lot of you guys asked me, 'well how much does Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos have in terms of rice?' So that was my mission. I went to Target, I bought a digital food scale, I came home and then I weighed the rice that was worth $1 billion from earlier.
"I did the math in my head and I went to Costco. I got the rice, I brought it home and once I brought it home I went to work."
As a side note, Yang explained: "I also wanna say that I have five families that are going to take this unused rice so it's totally not wasteful."
If you haven't worked it out by now, Jeff Bezos is one of the richest people on the planet. But he does give considerable chunks of his money away to help fight things like climate change.
Last month, the 56-year-old pledged to pump $10 billion (£7.69bn) into a global initiative he's launching, helpfully called the Bezos Earth Fund.
The 56-year-old took to Instagram to explain that he will be putting in the money to start off and then he will be issuing grants over the summer, adding: "Earth is the one thing we all have in common - let's protect it, together."
