Yes....women love geeks. They get the best jobs, make the most money, are so desperate to please a woman and keep her that they will do anything for you
Just look at my boyfriend (hehe - goin to get it for that)

No doubt you all have already seen this, but it still holds true of geeks:

The answer to the eternal question: Is "it better to be a jock or a nerd?"

Michael Jordan having "retired," 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 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'* there.
If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, he'll make $618 while boiling it.
He makes $7,415/hour 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 percent of his income into a tax deferred account (401k), his contributions will hit the federal cap of $10,500 at 8:45am 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.*. past presidents for all of their terms combined.

Amazing isn't it? However... If Jordan saves 100 percent of his income for the next 500 years, he'll still have less than Bill Gates has at this very moment.
