interesting read youve probly all seen it before but thought id put it up anyway BETTER TO BE A JOCK OR A NERD? To help you in formulating your answer, the following should be considered: Michael Jordan will make more than $300,000 a game, $10,000 a minute, assuming he averages about 30 minutes per game. Assuming he also makes $40 million in endorsements next year, he will be making $178,000 a day, working or not. If he goes to see a movie, it will cost him $8.00 (without popcorn and drink), but will make $18,500 while he is there. If he decides to have a 5-minute egg, he will make $618 while boiling it. He makes $7,415 per hour more than minimum wage, even after the wage hike. He will make $3,710 while watching each episode of "FRIENDS". If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX (cost $90,000), it will take him a whole 12 hours to earn the money. If someone were to hand him his salary and endorsement money, they would have to do it at a rate of 2 dollars every second. He will probobly pay around $200 for a nice round of golf, but then will be reimbursed $33,390 for that round. Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his income in to his tax deferred acct (401K), he will hit the federal cap of $9,500 for such acts at 8:30 am on Jan 1st. If you were given a tenth of a penny for every dollar Michael made, you would be living comfortably at $65,000 a yeaar. Michael will make about $19.60 while watching the 100 meter dash in the Olympics. He will make about $15,600 while the Boston Marathon (26 miles) is being run by the winner. During the time the commom person is spending about $20.00 for a meal in Michael's trendy Chhicago resteraunt, Michael will make more than twice as much as all the past presidents have made in all their terms combined. PRETTY AMAZING HUH? .......BUT Michael Jordan will have to save 100 percent of his income for 270 years to have a NET worth equivalent to that of Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft. NOW WHICH WOULD YOU RATHER BE???????
