They say time is money. If Bill Gates dropped $1000.00 on the ground and had to stop and pick it up it would cost him more money to go back to get it then it would to just keep on walking and leave it. I personally will be following him around just in case it is true.[/QUOTE]

Do his compound interest,equities and salary stop if he does? How does that work then?

The point is conceded that the world does not stop if Bill Gates drops money. However if you would break down his yearly income and put it into dollars earned/ second/ and made him Johnny punch clock. He would be better off leaving the $1000 on the ground then punching out and picking it up. That is all. Thanks for coming. I hope I have clarified that terribly confusing point, I will try to simplify it next time around, or, I will just type slower.

Sometimes I wish I could heed that advice, But since I no longer drink I need something to amuse myself in the wee hours of the morning.
