Just how strongly do you identify with the "We Are the 99%" slogan? It's the Wall Street Journal to the rescue, with a nifty little tool that allows you to plug in your salary and see what percentile you're in. (It's based just on salary, not total wealth.) Use it here. Spoiler alert: If your salary is somewhere south of $506,000, you are indeed a 99-percenter and free to post something on Tumblr here. You lucky 1-percenters can go here. And you OWS skeptics can go here. (More Occupy Wall Street stories.)
