Default Is it better to be a jock or a nerd?

Now this is something I found quite interesting. This probably applies to every teenager that wants to be "cool" or become a nerd. Although we will probably never earn this much money I still found it a good fact to know.

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's 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% 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.S. past presidents for all of their terms combined.
Amazing isn't it?

However...

If Jordan saves 100% of his income for the next 50 years, he'll still have less than Bill Gates has at this very moment.

Game over. Nerd wins.

What does everyone else think? Jock or nerd?

I believe the question was, jock or nerd?* Both isn't an answer.* :
Nerd.* Jocks are stupid, nerds play 40k, and girls love nerds.
