    Toxin in the cold? May be because he's personally broke and living off unearned family income.

    Also odd that Wiliam's down for a mere 56 bn, when they had him listed with 450 bn several years ago...has he given away so much?

    it was never 450 billion, I think you are confusing this number with MSFT marketcap

    Yea I knew they were big, but not the biggest animal food manufacturer. It might be cos they are intergrated ie a large percentage of their food feeds their own animals. In fact if you have a CP contract you have to use their feed, vets, medicen....everything. May as well just work for them except then they would have to take on the risk......I'm not a CP fan
    I have more than the average number of arm and legs

    The figures would be based on his net worth, being his stake in MS plus other assets. Some years back he announced his intention to redistribute much of his wealth, but I didn't realise he has disposed of so much.
