TWT’s: Pop Quiz
A Blonde is watching the news with her husband when the newscaster says
‘Two Brazilian men die in a skydiving accident.’
The blonde starts crying to her husband, sobbing ‘That’s horrible!!! So
many men dying that way!’
Confused, he says, ‘Yes dear, it is sad, but they were skydiving, and
there is always that risk involved.’
After a few minutes, the blonde, still sobbing, says, ‘How many is a
Brazilian? It sounds like a really big number.’
I wanted to use that old Hooters joke to lead into this quick question. See, I was cleaning out some more closets this weekend and ran across this old forgotten number:
I wanted to ask everybody if they know what this number represents but, I know without any context, that question would be lunacy. So let me give you a hint:
2 x 3 x 20 x 365 x 5
Their is a clue in there somewhere but to give you a bit more context let me tell you this is the number I used in the beginning of my Financial Advisor presentations when I met potential new clients. It represents a significant number in your financial future.
Phew! Practically giving it away there.
Now, anyone that can guess the meaning or the significance of that number I will do a guest post for. ~Sorry, we are squirreling our nuts for the big move so no big cash prizes.
I will field some answers tonight and tomorrow and give you my answer(s) on a Tight Wad Tuesday post on, er, Tuesday.
Go (insert team name)!!!
Oh, and it involves your retirement…
No, you were exactly right. Its how much money a couple will need just to eat during their retirement. Big Congrats Kelly! How did you know that? You must have been a financial planner in a previous life?
Sorry $5 / meal not per day.
Don’t want to lose on a technicality
ahhhhh, let me check your math…
You already asked me to do a guest post… but I am going to answer your question. Take 2 people at 3 meals a day 365 days in a year for 20 years (life expectancy) at $5 a day. Its 219,000 you need to have saved just to eat in retirement.
Not just another pretty face!
Ohh…yeah still stumped! haha I will wait for the big reveal!
Love the idea Andy …. intriguing.
Oh you won’t find it that way. If you multiply the numbers you get 219,000 right? And it doesn’t matter which order you use the numbers. Like Di above, its $5.00 and its every day of the year. And it matters to both you and your spouse…..
You are on the right track Di so here’s a small hint, throw a $ in front of the 5.
I even tried to Google the meaning of all that but the numbers alone are giving me a headache.
not a flippin’ clue except for 365 days in a year???
