  • QI you can be fired from the BBC if you say Santa does not exist.

  • 1:18 He doesn't actually have to deliver all that many gifts.... I mean, have you ever noticed that in every movie, after Santa delivers the presents, he just fucks off into the distance and doesn't stop at any of the other houses in town? It's because children are horrid, little monsters.... :P

  • Isn’t just because Santa is not AS rich as Smaug or anyone else in the top 10? Like if he wanted to Smaug could give every kid several presents more than Santa or something like that

This episode/list is old but several real life people are way above Smaug now since his value can't change because he is locked into the hobbit but comics books are still being written and getting more ridiculous

It's one of my favourite parts of "Phil's Best Bits on QI" video, which include the largest drip which is hilarious and how he "hates this programme" when it constantly destroys his long held "knowledge" of things. When the sun has actually set, is another absolute classic from Phil's best bits video. Worth a look if you haven't already.

    • nlworld.info/key/video/zG6Bk6eki4yCpWc Check right near the end. Basically, most of Scrooge's money was stolen by Flintheart in the comic series at the time the list was made. Scrooge got it back and returned to number 1. 🙂

      Slick TailsSlick TailsMaand geleden
  • For those wondering why Flintheart Glomgold made it on the list and not Scrooge McDuck himself, it's because at the time it was published in the Duck Tales comic series Flintheart had stolen Scrooge's moneybin (i.e. The gigantic building with the "swimming pool" of money seen in the cartoon intro), thus had overtaken Scrooge's wealth by a considerable margin. The list in the following year saw Scrooge McDuck back at number 1 after having retrieved his money bin and all the gold it contained. Edit: Here's a Forbes video of the subsequent year's list. Check near the end! nlworld.info/key/video/zG6Bk6eki4yCpWc

  • I was gonna say because he's been kicked off the list by Jeff Bezos and the rest. Bezos could literally buy every child in the world a 90$ gift and still have money left over to never work for the rest of his life. Even with elf slave labor, how's Santa gonna compete with that? With wooden horses?

      Septimus iiSeptimus iiMaand geleden
  • I'm really confused about the fact that Scrooge McDuck's not on the list, but Glomgold is. In the Donald Duck universe it has been confirmed many times that Scrooge is very much on the top, followed more or less closely by Flintheart Glomgold or John D. Rockerduck. Maybe there's a reason for this, but whatever. This was just some of my Disney comic nerdyness

    • @Isla Micstate Partly, but mainly because both St. Nicholas and the secular version of Santa Claus provide an example of unbridled generosity to all who are less fortunate and suffering. Such examples are, to my mind, more important now than it has been. Even so, a strong case could be made that the historical St. Nicholas is a better example since he was a real person. Even so, I'll take any example of generosity toward others that becomes available.

      Br. Martin Dally, OSBBr. Martin Dally, OSBMaand geleden

    • @Christopher Meraz-Mata While this does raise the issue of whether or not it is okay to perpetuate such fictions, I would argue that in this case (Santa Claus), it serves a real psychological purpose of being, for the most part, harmless fun. I acknowledge that there are legitimate arguments against it being harmless fun, but I'm not convinced by them as yet. At least, in this case.

Youre saying that Smaug's treasure hoard, that VAST hall which had literal MOUNTAINS of gold heaped in unholy quantities so high they were able to completely bury a creature as immense as Smaug, is /only/ $62 Billion?! We're genuinely saying that at the respective height of their affluence, Jeff Bezos is almost 3x richer?!?! I know 60 Billion is a massive number but... that room... Bezos... but seriously... *proceeds to curl up in a ball and rock at the sheer absurdity over the rich-poor divide in the world today*

      KwingofKlubsKwingofKlubsMaand geleden
    • The value of gold is very much dependant on its rarity. If so much is as concentrated as the gold we see in Smaug's hoard then it is common - locally - and loses some value. We've seen this in the real world with the Aztecs of Meso-America, gold was relatively plentiful, and - though it was used decoratively because it is beautiful - it wasn't of great value.

He controls the means of production and maintains the status quo of a proletariat elf underclass. He also works to maintain the social strata in our society by giving more to the rich than to the poor.

    • @Interested Bystander In Tolkien's legendarium, dragons were all created by the primary Dark Lord Morgoth, and only a very few survived his downfall. Aside from Smaug, we definitely know of only two others in the Third Age, Scatha the Worm (from whose hoard came the horn that Eomer gave to Merry), and an unnamed cold-drake that slew one of Thorin's ancestors. There are references to others, but Smaug seems to have been the greatest of them at that point in history.

The rest of his wealth is tied up in all the businesses he owns. He once claimed to have a net worth of "multiplujillion, nine obsquatumatillion, six hundred and twenty-three dollars and sixty-two cents".
