SEATTLE, WA — Fresh off celebrating his ascendance as the third richest man on Forbes 2017 billionaires list, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos tweeted this photo of himself enjoying a recent purchase of a life-sized robot inspired by a bet he made after watching the movie Aliens with local friend Bill Gates. Bezos’ net worth reportedly climbed an astonishing $27.6 billion in 2016, putting his estimated total at $72.8 billion, behind only Bill Gates and Warren Buffet who both retained their number 1 and 2 spots, respectively.
