                     NERDS vs JOCKS

In answer to the eternal question "Is it better to be
a jock or a nerd?" I submit the following:

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
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!
