Texas

My next business trip will bring me to texas.
dun dun dun!
I’ll by flying into Bush Intercontinental Airport.

I guess I’m going to need a cowboy hat and a texas worthy belt buckle.

Why I like Amazon.com

I ordered a full Dewalt drill bit set off of Amazon.com on Friday for 40 dollars.

I happened to RE-check the item this morning to find that it was now being offered for 30 dollars.

one quick e-mail later, and I’m getting a $10 credit to my account.

Rock on Amazon.com

DREAM

I had a dream last night that a stock that I had invested in jumped 600% and suddenly I had $120,000!!!

As I began to wonder what to do with all this money I thought “I could get a new car!” then I realized… nah… the Acclaim is in great shape.

A TON OF MONEY

What is the least amount of value that could be associated with a Ton of Money?

I think the choice would obviously have to be pennies since the weight to value ratio of a penny is highest.

The weight of 32 pennies averaged comes out to 2.87 grams . There are 907,184.7 grams in a Ton.

That means you need 316,092 pennies, or $3,160.92 to have a Ton of Money.

Of course if you were to get $100 bills instead, the math works out to about 98Million Dollars.

Of course, I’m only looking at US currencies. Foreign currencies could get really interesting.
