Are you sure?

The 2000 U.S. Census shows 143,368,343 women in the U.S.[1]. If we assume a cost of $4500/per set of implants[2], the total cost would be roughly $645 billion. Bill Gates, the world's richest man, is estimated to have a net worth of approximately $61 billion[3]. See also "The Forbes Four Hundred"[4], which Gates tops and from which Britney is, sadly, absent.
