Get $100 today
Get $1 a day for 200 days
By getting 1 dollar every day, I'd probably just buy a daily can of Coke or something... By getting it at once, I'd do something more... intresting.
A quote sums this up quite nicely "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."
Xerun. That doesn't sum it up at all. “He that can have patience can have what he will.” - Benjamin Franklin
There's something called saving you know
100 dollars doesn't do much in today economy while if your patient and save 200 dollars then... yay stuff!
$200 > $100
^genius. Or maybe just common sense.
100 now > 200 later
That's pretty serious inflation for seven months....
Well if you live in turkey maybe...
If you wanted to sound smart Ben you should have said invest the $100 now in something about to have a reverse split in stocks thus making at least $200 in a few weeks.
That assumes you are successful.
That assumes you do not have a terminal illness so you have limited time to spend the money anyways.
wat kind of gay person get 100 today if u could wait patiently to get double the amount
Present value of an annuity where PV= 1, R= 7% APR, N= 200, Payment = 1 you end up with roughly 207 dollars. Which is greater than a present value of 100.
I know myself well enough... if I had $100 at once, I'd blow it on dumb $h!t....
If I had $1 a day I'd blow it before I ever saw day 200
100 is a smaller number than 200, do you see how that works :P
But I rather get 100 dollars now than getting one doller for 200 DAYS
josh, that means you are unable to think rationally about money and most likely not that smart either
@Viperxiii Or we are impatient. Level of patience =! how smart someone is.
How would your survive on a dollar a day???
@Garrett, I'd get my regular income as well, it says nothing about that. So I take my extra dollar and put it in a jar, and in seven months I have an extra $200 (which I then need to convert to pounds)
this is stupid, nobody would wait 200 days just to get 200. its not even that much, and you'd spend so much of it before you reached day 200. I can go out into the street and FIND 1$ in the floor.
No way! The street has a floor you can go into?! Man I missed that one. (If English isn't your first language, I apologize for being snarky.)
I'm impatient. :/
interest rates ain't what they used to be
what can i say. im an impatient bastard
I would like it to come in the mail... I never get fun mail anymore
Total I would get more, but it also makes me use it wisely.
But I'm still picking $200 even though you get $1 a day, you will get more
I'd end up spending the dollar every day
Ain't No body got time for that!
Well while u blow it on coke, us conservative people while simply save it as if we don't own it to begin with and 200 days will be here before you know it and next thing you know you have $200 on one day while the people who voted for $100 to begin with probably already blew it off.
Whoever voted for $100 today pretty much means there impatient
i WOULD NO
Put it in a bank and get interest from it. I'd have more than you reds from the same amount of days.
LOL, u serious?
Patience is the key to everything...
The people that said $100 today are retarded. Even at an effective inflation rate of 5%, the present value $1 a day for 200 days is $197.27.
What if I told you I'm an expert in playing the stock market? I could turn that $100 into $200 in less than a week. Now who's retarded?
wow calling people retarded. nice one, you look like an idiot right now.
100bucks fuck yeah!!! Niggaz gotta git KFC fool
I'm a broke broke nigga
I almost always lost 1$, at the end I'ld have only 50$
it'd pay off in the long run
You'd get more $$$ for $1 a day. I would save!!!
i save all my money anyway (especially if I knew what was happening) so definitly would wait for the 200
200 beats 100
im a saver not a spender
So 40% of the people voting are either so incredibly stupid that they can't multiply 1*200 and realize that is more than 100; or they are just so impatient they can wait 200 days to double their money.
You get more money in the end
I would use that 100$ and invest it on the stock market technique I just learned from that man on the internet!
Oops i thought it said it doubl
It ads up if you get that you will eventually get like 1000000 dollars
There has been science on this, kids were given a bowl of lollies and told they could have some now or all in 15 min. Even knowing they would get all of them if they waited most of the kids gave in after a few minutes. They also found that the ones who waited were more likely to end up successful later in life, but the ones that didn't wait at all were likely to become delinquents and drop out of school. # The more you know.
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts!
I'm not that paitent
Oops..I read it wrong. I thought it said 100 dollars a day.
To be honest, I would probably spend the $1 a day half of the time so I'd rather just get it all.
inflation happens, so that value is lost...
Tomorrow is today, technically. Anyways, how do you survive with 7 dollars a week?
get $100 now or $200 in 7 months? too much time to wait, probably spend the dollar each day and not save.
invest now dumbasses
