Mark Cuban is possibly the luckiest person in the world. He made his fortune on what is called the dumbest purchase in Internet history when Yahoo! bought his company -- a company he essentially fell into -- for $5.7 billion in 1999. Cuban's initial investment, $10,000.

Yahoo! shut it down a mere three years later. The company, Broadcast.com, never turned a profit. Now Cuban is selling his interest in a team in the failing NBA for an inflated price, yet he gets to keep control of the team.

Cuban's greatest talent may be in recognizing a sucker when he sees one.

Some speculating he's going to run for President.
