Jocks Vs. Nerds!
In answer to the eternal
"Is it better to be a Jock or a Nerd?"
|Michael Jordan will make over
$300,000 per game/$10,000 per minute, assuming he averages about 30 minutes per game.
Assuming $40 million in endorsements next year, he'll be making $178,100 per day, whether he actually works or not.
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 boiling it.
He makes $7,415 an hour more than minimum wage.
He'll make $3,710 while watching each episode of Friends.
If he wanted to save up for a new Accura 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 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 Market is being run.
While the common person is spending about $20 for a meal in this trendy Chicago restaurant, he'll pull in about $5,600.
Next year, he'll make more than twice as much as all of our past presidents or all of their terms combined.
Amazing, isn't it? BUT...
...MICHAEL JORDAN MUST SAVE 100% OF HIS INCOME FOR 270 YEARS TO HAVE A NET WORTH EQUIVALENT TO THAT OF BILL GATES.
