When Reggie Theus of East Texas checked his bank account online, he was pleasantly surprised to find himself the world's first trillionaire - well, at least for a few hours. Yes, trillionaire - that's a number with 12 zeroes. Man, that's a lot of zeroes.
Theus handily beat Carlos Slim of Mexico (net worth $73 billion) and Bill Gates ($67 billion).
Jamey Boyum of KLTV interviewed Theus, an area director for Newk's restaurant in East Texas, who still went to work after discovering his, uh, imagined windfall. "I obviously wished it would have been real but it was great to see. I logged out and logged back in eight times just to see if it wsa still there, and every time it was still there."
And what would the four trillion dollar man do with all that money? Theus said that he'd spend 3 trillion to pay off the national debt.
