A Jewish man and a Chinese man were conversing. The Jewish man
commented upon what a wise people the Chinese are. "Yes," replied
the Chinese, "Our culture is over 4,000 years old. But, you Jews
are a very wise people, too." The Jewish man replied, "Yes, our
culture is over 5,000 years old." The Chinese man was
incredulous, "That's impossible," he replied. "Where did your
people eat for a thousand years?
In answer to the eternal question "Is it better to be a jock
or a nerd?" I submit the following:
This come out several years ago, I finally posted 12/2007
Michael Jordan will make over $300,000 a game: $10,000 a
minute, assuming he averages about 30 minutes per game.
Assuming $40 million in endorsements next year, he'll be making
$178,100 a day (working or not)!
Assuming he sleeps 7 hours a night, he makes $52,000 every
night while visions of sugarplums dance in his head.
If he goes to see a movie, it'll cost him $7.00, but he'll make
$18,550 while he's there.
If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, he'll make $618 while
He makes $7,415/hr more than minimum wage (after the wage hike)
He'll make $3,710 while watching each episode of Friends.
If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX ($90,000) it would
take him a whole 12 hours.
If someone were to hand him his salary and endorsement money,
they would have to do it at the rate of $2.00 every second.
He'll probably pay around $200 for a nice round of golf, but
will be 'reimbursed' $33,390 for that round.
Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his income into
his tax deferred account (401k), he will hit the federal cap of
$9500 for such accounts at 8:30 a.m. on January 1st, 1997.
If you were given a tenth of a penny for every dollar he made,
you'd be living comfortably at $65,000 a year.
He'll make about $19.60 while watching the 100 meter dash in
the Olympics. He'll make about $15,600 while the Boston Marathon is being run.
While the common person is spending about $20 for a meal in his
trendy Chicago restaurant, he'll pull in about $5600.
Next year, he'll make more than twice as much as all of our
past presidents for all of their terms combined.
Amazing isn't it? BUT:
JORDAN WILL HAVE TO SAVE 100% OF HIS INCOME FOR 270 YEARS TO
HAVE A NET WORTH EQUIVALENT TO THAT OF BILL GATES.
NERDS RULE! NERDS RULE! NERDS RULE!
