Elon Musk was the wealthiest person on the planet, but then he made some bizarre financial transactions (Twitter, cough, cough), and he is now the second richest guy in the world who could cure world hunger, but he doesn't care. Twitter was more important. Why are all billionaires such dickholes?

Back on topic. Elon isn't doing as well as he's accustomed to doing. And we're okay with that.

The Independent reports:

Elon Musk's net worth has plummeted by more than $200bn over the past 13 months, one of the biggest losses of wealth in recent history.

The tech tycoon lost more than half of his fortune between November 2021 and December this year, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, largely due to the collapse of Tesla stock during that time.

The $208bn wiped from Mr. Musk's net worth is roughly equivalent to the GDP of Greece. The amount lost is also more than the net worth of the world's richest person, Bernard Arnault.

This isn't going to hurt Elon's luxurious lifestyle. However, he's no longer in the coveted spot of the most wealthy guy in the world. By the way, that spot is only coveted by narcissistic rich dudes. The rest of us don't care. Well done, you rich fuckhead. You owned the libs by losing a fortune. Yay for you!
