How Rich Are You? Part II

If Michael Jordan 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?

However...

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

Re: How Rich Are You? Part II

Well I feel a lot richer this month.

Japanese type-in traffic seems to be up very significantly over previous months.

Definitely poorer after the cost of putting up 30 Chinese mini sites in the past couple of weeks , seeing traffic increase significantly from parking but only 1 click.

1 click out of how many views? :o

Might be an ad positioning or relevancy issue (adsense often show wrong ads on chinese sites).

Adsense allows 3 banners and 3 link units on every page.

Actually 2 clicks for $0.19 from 540 views although most names have only been up for 2/3 weeks.

May well be relevancy.Time will tell.

Wow. I'm not doing anywhere near that. More like $1-$2/day. But that's because my domains are parked with Sedo right now. I am just beginning to develop them into real minisites.

Re: How Rich Are You? Part II

I'm up 7k lifetime with all of my domain investments just counting flipping names, I never made anything parking. pretty weak figures considering the time vested but I still have names I guess.

I've made some money with Adsense, but I'm still in the hole from all my domain purchases.

Hell, I even picked up an ASCII yesterday :o

AboutTrust.com

Don't know if it'll be worth anything, but the rest of the extensions are gone and I can just imagine that guy who does the voice for the movie trailers in the US saying that domain name on the radio! Anybody know that guy's name, btw?

IDN's aside which is my relatively new venture I have been fortunate enough to see profits well in excess of $100K for ascii over the past 3/4 years.

Still get around $5/600 per month from ascii parking.

Re: How Rich Are You? Part II

100k nice!

I make almost 2k a month off my developed sites but domains are really boring me lately.

Still looking for that 4k+ a month so I can quit my day job

I should put much more effort in to my developed ascii sites as they only make peanuts but I have zero expertise.

If anybody has any suggestions on what I should do to give my wife more spending money they will be gratefully received.

TajMahal.co.in , Indian.co.in , Geography.info, American.info and a few others!

Cool, proves that timing is all that matters in this business. 1 or 2 years earlier makes a tremendous difference! :o
