Former Governor Mitt Romney placed a wager with Rick Perry over whether he was for an individual mandate in healthcare. Amount of wager: $10,000. Romney’s net worth: $250 million. People in American can barely pay rent, and this rich prick is on TV making $10,000 bets. What kind of shit can you buy for ten grand?
2011 Nissan Versa
Yes, for $9,990 you can trade your balls and manhood in on a Nissan Versa. Nothing screams masculinity like showing up to the club in a Nissan Versa. 107 horsepower, 5-speed manual transmission, and manual everything. It looks like something a suburban would shit out.
A house in Detroit
I’m sure I”m going to get fucked with by people in Detroit, but if you want to live in a run-down city, then you can shell out 9 grand for a house in Detroit. 818 square feet of pure paradise in a city riddled with crime. Good luck finding a job, though. Oh, and public transportation? Forget about it.
Groceries for a year and a half
Gas for 2 years
AAA says their average customer keeps a car five years and drives that car 75,000 miles. This works out to 15,000 miles per year. Other estimates range from 10,000 to 20,000 miles per year depending on income and the number of vehicles in the family.
At 20,000 miles per year with a vehicle that gets twenty miles to the gallon you would need 1,000 gallons of gas per year. With gas prices at $2.00 that would cost $2,000 per year. At $4.00 it would cost $4,000 per year. So over the last five years your gasoline bill has increased by $2,000 or $38.46 dollars per week. Better take a few more sack lunches to work.
