## Jocks Versus Nerds

An answer to the eternal question "Is it better to be a jock or a nerd?"

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 boiling it. 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 have hit the federal cap of \$9500 for such accounts at 8:30 a.m. on January 1st, 1998.

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 win!
