These are the guys you want to hang out with. They're the top billionaires on Forbes Magazine's annual "Billionaire's List."

Mexican telecom mogul Carlos Slim Helú is the world's richest person for the third year in a row. His net worth is $69 billion.

That's eight billion more than Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. He's worth $61 billion.

Rounding out the top three is Berkshire Hathaway head Warren Buffett. Coincidentally, he's donated much of his $44 billion fortune to Gates' charities.

Forbes counted 1,226 billionaires worldwide, which is up from last year.

In case you were wondering, and we know you are, the billionaires have a combined worth of $4.6 trillion.
