The article itself mostly details how likely millionaires are to be just “ordinary looking people.” I just found the title to be amusing. Here it is.

Well that's just great, I guess all of the rich folk have enough bodies out there to fuel their own nation.

I think part of the point is that due to inflation being a millionaire isn't the same sort of thing it used to be. :)

My parents are millionaires according to the criteria listed in the article, but they're not “rich folk”.
That would be nice though!

-With 4 billion people in the world and only 22 million Australians you'd think there'd HAVE to be a LOT more millionaires than Australians… but maybe the article is just talking about the US?

Yeah, I would definitely agree with you. Having the title of “millionaire” doesn't have the same status it did when I was little.

I'm just amused by the choice of comparisons. And yeah, it probably is a statistic specific to the US. But seriously, why Australia?! In fact, even with the title the author gave it, the part about Australia is only mentioned in one sentence! I mean, I can understand attracting readers, but besides the fact that they could have used Syria or another similarly-populated country, it seems a little contrived. How about, “More Millionaire's in the World Than Porn Videos You Have Watched.” Now there's an article I would read and recommend to friends.

Inflation would have to be 1930's Germany levels… O_O

So does this mean that if Millionaires decided to go to war with Australia, the island continent wouldn't stand a chance?
Those were my two cents.

Hardly! at only 22 million on a landmass as large as the continental USA, we'd all run and hide and they'd never find us, hahahaha! ^___^
Meanwhile your navy of vicious stingrays would hunt them down… on land as well as sea :gem:

We're no the ones who wouldn't stand a chance.
