QuoteOriginally posted by: farmerIt is also a consideration that DE Shaw is in Manhattan. I remember a writer pointed out that official/census poverty is greater in Palo Alto, California than in East Palo Alto, a run-down ghetto dump. All these Stanford students are poor on paper. But they get free football games, movies, housing, I am sure they surf every weekend and get drunk every night and screw college girls.These same people go to Manhattan every girl wants a guy who will enable her to quit working, get her student loans paid off, and live in a $7500 apartment.So you will spend an extra:$15,000 a year buying girls dinner$84,000 on rent$35,000 on taxes $20,000 on some harlot's student loans$6,000 on clothes and dry cleaning------------$160,000 to get back to even.This is classic farmer, but I think your restaurant estimate is a little low, she's gong to insist on going to per se once a year, minimum. Furthermore, 6000$ a year on clothes and dry cleaning, the SO will spend at least 10,000$ on the throwaway wardrobe alone.... Plus, you exclude the weekend trips to the hamptons, you exclude the overseas vacations to visit her relatives, you exclude all the money spent on shows, clubs, bars -that's probably another 20,000$ AND then you'll have to hear her criticize you for spending too much on yourself when you buy a few DVDs for yourself - criticizing you for not savin up money to pay for the children she eventually wants to have!
