Sun is world's 766th-largest company

Possibly not the most interesting (or meaningful) statistic you'll ever read, but it's interesting to see what sort of companies we rank alongside in the Forbes 2000... Sanyo, Nintendo and Amazon to name but three. And as a Scot, it's nice to see the Royal Bank of Scotland up in the top 20, four places ahead of IBM :)

sorry man, but I think rbs is owned by English companies...Direct line et al.
Bank of Scotland is the only Scottish one left I think

Not AFAIK... Direct Line, Churchill etc. are all wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Royal Bank, which also owns Nat West these days if memory serves. (Not that I care, I'm with the Bank of Scotland anyway...)
