Do Investment Bankers even make that much, yo?

Honestly yo I was thinking and if the average Investment Banker, from an upper middle tier frat, makes about 450K over the course of his first three years, he probably only keeps about half of that (so like 185K). So then if he works say 80 hours a week, and there are 59 weeks in a year, then that's about 4,960.72222 hours a year, times the three years he's worked and that's 15,129.72 hours worked over three years to only pocket about 185K. So really, even if you divide his pre-tax income by hours worked, he's still only making a NF $27 hourly wage.

My question is, do Investment Bankers really make more on an hourly basis than top tier frat guys with rich dads?

Ha, I'll leave Math to the NF investment bankers in their cubicles going balder by the day. Even if they did make as much money as top tier frat lords with rich dads, who wants to spend 80 hours a week working?

Nah dude... Rich frat guys get mad money from their dads without working any hour. Mad Money/ 0 hour = infinity.

Technically that's not "infinity", it's an undefined number.
