I`d be Jordan. I just couldn`t resist the temptation of having a big black anaconda in my pants. Even if Gates has money, you can`t buy a bigger p0n0s.

"Is Bill Gates really a better person? Or better at life?"
Think about it this way... What changed your life the most? Watching Michael Jordan play with his pretty shiny ball? Or Bill Gates having founded Microsoft?

Michael Jordan should invent a game where he has to spend more money than he has coming in to see if he can ever be out of pocket :)

"Peloos: there is still a huuuuge gap between the earnings of these two.. The fact that from the viewpoint of mortal man it looks close doesn`t alter the fact that the difference between jordans` $40 mill and Gates` $40 bill is a factor of 1000."

You`re missing my point, though. I understand how big of a gap there is. What I want to know is how a financial gap equals a happiness gap. Is Bill Gates really a better person? Or better at life? I`m not trying to debase Bill here because he`s an awesome guy. I just don`t understand how somebody with millions of dollars is supposed to feel lesser because somebody else has more money than him. I`m one of those people who has always been bothered by how much worth most people put into money.

Jordan is also a shrewd businessman. He dabbles in a lot of things, including ownership of the Charlotte Bobcats, a racing team, his shoe line, etc etc etc.

It`s a stupid debate though really because when you have as much money as he does the difference between him and Gates is trivial anyway. I`m pretty sure Mike is extremely happy with his life.

@ Paddy...why do you think Jordan is respected all over the world? People who are suffering and starving have better things to I think about, I would imagine. I live in Canada and I could not care less about him or basketball in general. I respect Gates, who is making a difference to everyone, regardless of whether they know who he is or not.

They say that if Bill Gates found a hundred dollar bill on his way to work, it would be a waste of time just to bend down and snatch it, because he`d make more if he was a second earlier to work

"If someone were to hand him is his salary and endorsement money, they would have to do it at a rate of $200 every second."

"He`ll make about $19.60 while watchng the 100 metre dash in the Olympics."

So the 100metres takes 0.098 seconds?

Besides do you really believe Bill Gates has a more of an impact on todays youth than Michael Jordan? " totally depends what your into. I`m from the UK so basketball isn`t big to me. I couldn`t care less about Jordan. But I`m a technology freak so Gates interests me.

@Concetra Gates has had more of an impact on the WORLD, nevermind just the youth. He is the founder of the operating system that is most widely used internationally. Microsoft was crucial in making the home computer a reality, of bringing this technology to the masses. Michael Jordon just plays basketball very well. Gates has a solid place in history for changing the world he lived in permanently. To write your comment, you used technology that Bill Gates helped create, how has Jordon effected your life beyond entertaining you for a couple of hours?

"Jordan doesnt have to even work to make his money while gates has to keep all his stocks in check and be stressed out bout finance and work. he doesnt have time to enjoy his wealth as jordan would
"

that`s where Bill Gates hires people to deal with that poo. Plus he isn`t the ceo of mircosoft. Isn`t he just an `adviser` now?

I would definitely rather be Michael Jordan. It would have been much more fun building an empire on being the best basketball player in history rather than the most popular software/computer engineer.

once you have more than you can ever spend, does having more count?

You know she pays like $100k to get her eyebrows waxed?

She hops in her private jet to fly to Cali to go to her special eyebrow person. :|

I think once you get to the point of having as much money as Michael Jordan, someone having more than you doesn`t really concern you all that much. Unless of course you were hoping to buy Sweden or something.

Average full-time salaries were ~$65,000 (Australia) in 2010. Suppose you had only $1 million, that`s equivalent to around 15.4 years full-time salary. Wisely invested, much more. I would be more than happy with a fraction of a percent of what these dudes have. Retire 15 years earlier, or work a buttload harder for extra money you don`t really need? Tough choice.

This would be a good time to admit that I actually like Win 7. I use Ubuntu on my home desktop, but I needed a laptop for school- and it had to be either a windows or mac machine to run certain software- and there was no way I was gonna shell out the $$$ for a mac. Got Win 7 pro 64-bit. I have to say- I`m impressed so far.

They`re drating him worse than that- there`s no drating way he got paid 10 mil.

Also, what square bottle? haven`t seen it.

"All those X get paid way too much".

Depends how you value work. The reason they get paid that much, is because they make that much + more, for the company that paid them.

Lets look at the value of the work of the guy who redesigned Coke`s bottle into that square thing. They can now fit 25% more coke in that shipping container. This will reduce shipping costs.

Considering they sell 1.2 billion drinks a day, even if it costs them 1cent a bottle, you have effectively given the company ~3 million dollars a day for the rest of their life.

The work of this designer, has made the company 3 million dollars a day. If they pay him 1% of what they`ll save this year because of him, that`s over 10 million, and they`re basically drating him.

Similarly with Jordan. Nike knows they`ve made more money than him, from him. Paying him less, just means Nike makes more (from his work).

Instead of making 100 billion dollars I`d settle for 100 million and not rip people off with my products. Really how much money can 1 man spend in a lifetime?

Doubt Jordan makes that much. maybe companies he is affiliated with and licensing brings in a lot of money but there`s a lot of hands in those pots.

Eh, when you reach a certain amount of money, what`s the point of having more? They both have more than they will ever need.

So I`d take Jordan`s money, his championships, and his god-like status over the extra billions.
