I'll just repeat that...If all the gold in the world was distributed equally among the world’s inhabitants, man. woman and children...how much would we each get?

About $130 each, according to http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-21969100 (2013 figures)
Not all that much, I'm sure you'll agree. If my shonky maths is anything to go by, that's just over a cubic centimetre each from their cube just over 20 metres on a side

Strewth, Siasl! Me and my (t)rusty calculator just double-checked the maths and your $130 is dead right.
130 lousy bucks? It's even worse when converted into quids of the realm...it stacks up to a measly 102 quid each...just enough to pay for a couple of month's Sky Sport  telly bills and a few pints of lager. I reckon someone somewhere is robbing us blind.
