INSIDE: You’ll love this addictive website where you can play different simulations, such as Printing Money, Life Stats, and Spend Bill Gates’ Money!
My friend Nate just passed me this site and told me good luck getting off it ;)
Passing over the gift to you now, lol…
(From a guy, Neal, who likes building random things online and helping you waste time an eensy weensy bit more productively ;))
A few of the simulations on the site you might enjoy:
Printing Money — A way to visualize rates from minimum wage to the national deficit. (Even just comparing Facebook revenue from Walmart revenue is insane to see!)
Spend Bill Gates’ Money — Where you have $90,000,000,000 to blow on whatever you like – coffee, drones, jet skis, Rolexes, Mansions, Superbowl Ads, F16s (and it’s STILL hard to spend it all!).
Life Stats — A showcase of things that have happened since you were born. Such as:
- The S&P 500 is up 3,073% in your lifetime
- There are 3,355,674,501 more people on Earth since you were born
- The amount of humans living in extreme poverty decreased 80%
- $1.00 in 1979 is equivalent to $3.54 today
- 9% of people born in 1979 didn’t make it to 2020
(I bet these numbers would be even more wild for those born prior to 1979 which is when I was born!)
And then a handful of other non-money related games on the site that were pretty cool:
- The Deep Sea
- Draw Logos From Memory
- Life Checklist (I’ve hit 53 of the 66 items so far – how about you?)
Get blog posts automatically emailed to you!
It’s pretty wild that about half the world’s population wasn’t around before I was born. In another 40 years we will all have a lot more neighbors!
and in 60 years from that everyone we know in the world will pretty much be dead! babies, presidents, celebrities, etc… All new people walking the Earth!
These sites are pretty entertaining! I’ve completed 52/66 items (you got me this time!); it’s mildly amusing that as a tail-end Gen-X’er, I’ve never won a trophy.
oh wow – that is!! My 5 y/o literally just won one for participating in a sports event, lol…
OMG! What a fun site! I beat you (not that this is a competition or anything) – my dollar is worth $8.31 now. On a really positive note, world literacy rate is up to 86% compared to 66% when I was born. Most likely because folks have an uncontrollable urge to read sites like yours!
YAY!!! Great news in this crazy world of ours! :)
Such a cool website. Definitely going to share it with my students next week at school.
Rock on!! I bet they totally like it.
Not a waste of time! I learned about the ocean while waiting at thebdocors office!
haha… mission accomplished :)
Well, I completed 61 of 66 life events and will never run a marathon, or get dumped or get fired or turn 100 and thus will never complete the checklist.
While I will never run a marathon, does it count if I climbed all the way down the Grand Canyon and backup (21 miles) in 11.5 hours – LOL ?
I would say so, yes :)
And I’m rooting for you to hit 100!!
