So why don't we stop pretending that the athletes in those sports are there to get a degree in liberal arts or engineering? They should start a secondary pre-professional league where these kids can go test the waters, get good training, and provide higher-quality sports entertainment. They could be traded and not get busted for trying to make subsistence money. If they find out it's not for them then they can always choose to go back and enter college if it's right for them.
>I personally make around $35k as a young single person with no debt, and feel rich, fwiw. I can't even spend it all--- after $1k/month on rent for a nice apt near the beach, and another $1k on food/car/entertainment, my expenses are pretty much covered.
My math must be off because $1,000 for rent plus $1,000 with other expenses is at least $48,000 per year in expenses not including taxes. Unless you had money saved up before you started making $35,000 to make up the difference.
Don't get me wrong I think Steve is probably a really strong leader based on what I've read. I wonder if he could have revolutionized any other consumer tech based on his willingness to not worry about quarterly earnings and to be blunt and honest with people about his vision.
Oh yeah: ACC! ACC! ACC!
