 ```Had a good response from the first Bill Gates story so I thought this would also be appreciated. -73- Mike, KC8CAP In 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 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? 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!
