Thread: You think Bill Gates is rich??

  1. #1

    Default You think Bill Gates is rich??

    Yes,he is.

    Michael Jordan makes over $300,000 a game. That's $10,000 a minute, at an average of 30 minutes per game. With $40 million in endorsements, he makes $178,100 a day, working or not. If he sleeps 7 hours a night, he makes $52,000 every night while visions of sugar plums 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), he will hit the federal cap of $9,500 at 8:30 a.m. on January 1st, 2000. 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. He'll make 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 $5,600. 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?

    However, if Jordan saves 100% of his income for the next 250 years, he'll still have less than Bill Gates has today.

    Game over. Geeks win
    Objection !!!

    I'd like to make a guess that a majority of Bill Gates fortune are in Microsoft stock, which is subject to the volitility of the US market as well as the tech sector. Even Warren Buffett the world's 2nd richest man, his fortune is also mostly in Berkshire Hathaway stock, which is also a listed holding company.

    A recession or even worse, depression, would wipe billions off these high net worth individuals net wealth.

    Bill Gate is Wealthy. Micheal Jordan is Rich. There is a difference. Wealthy people pays Rich people.

    If one day Bill Gate wakes up with Micheal Jordan's bank balance, he will kill himself. ( this is just a spin on an original humour by Chris Rock)
