Jocks vs Nerds

Michael Jordan having “retired,” with $40 million in endorsements, makes $178,100 a day, working or not.

If 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 boiling it.

He makes $7,415/hr more than minimum wage.

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 a tax deferred account (401k), his contributions will hit the federal cap of $9500 at 8:30 a.m. on January 1st.

If you were given a penny for every 10 dollars 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, and about $15,600 during the Boston Marathon.

While the common person is spending about $20 for a meal in his trendy Chicago restaurant, he’ll pull in about $5600.

This year, he’ll make more than twice as much as all U.S. past presidents for all of their terms combined. Amazing isn’t it?

If Jordan saves 100% of his income for the next 450 years, he’ll still have less than Bill Gates has today.

$$$ Game over. Nerd wins.

    If the Mexican Banks pays 50 pesos for every 30 minutes that costumers spends on lines (Usually when you go to the bank you spend 20 to 70 minutes) lets use 30 minutes as example.
    With 10 Costumers: 500 pesos
    With 100 Costumers: 5,000 pesos
    It’s easy to imagine 350 persons visiting a bank in a payday that means: 17,500 pesos
    If one of these banks has 900 (imagine that each bank branch attempt the same number of costumers) bank branches we got 15,750,000 pesos and if we repeat this like 20 times a year we get 315,000,000 pesos.

    With all these money 25,819,672.13 dollars Michel Jordan could see 6959.48 Friends episodes.
