So, F10 drivers, what is your gross income?

Just kidding...

I'm homeless.

I used to be a billionaire and had a collection of over 700 exotics. However, I owned an Investment Bank, and some rogue trader went crazy and bankrupted my Firm and I ended up on the streets.

Fortunately I have a super hot secretary who I repurposed as a call girl, and I was able to pimp her out for $30, then went to the local casino on the Indian Reservation, and while gambling the $30, I won $500.

I then went to a gun shop and traded the $500 for a gun. Then I happened to be walking down the street, when some former trader from my bankrupt bank is driving by in a brand new 550i. I couldn't let that stand, so I pulled the gun, stopped the car. Pulled the bastard out, killed him, and took the car.

Then I heard some other bastard is getting an M5 next week, so I'm planning to jack him too.

Gross Income = I eat what I kill.

Not too get political or anything, but gross income means nothing these days.
After your medical deductions, dependent care, FSA's, you are left with adjusted gross from which 8% goes to pay current retirees on SS, 30% or more to uncle Sam and the remaining to BMWFS

No, but you should definitely include all those checks you got from Nigeria.....

Yeah I'd say so. That's a "for now" figure
Once I start manufacturing parts for the F10...then the car would be considered an investment

Maybe Im too young to grasp the concept but I dont see where the shame or whatever it is in admitting income? Seems to be a pretty common thing when I go out for business or when I come across similar threads on different boards...

I forgot, is "gross income" before or after my wife gets a hold of the checkbook? If it's after, I make about $37 a week.

No kidding...I try to put my wife in her place at times and then she throws on those pumps and skimpy clothes and its no contest....I lose that battle every time
She's definitely the breadwinner in my household and I'm the only one working

If Obama is voted out of office I guess I have to get a job and not live off entitlements such as 144 weeks of unemployment, did I just make a political statement

Hahaa, never said it was a bad thing to lose .
It just amazes me the persuasive power she has over me. My friends call me "whipped" and tease me at times but I know their not getting anything near what I'm getting in the bedroom.

Good for you! The dude (F10) offered up his income - I don't see any reason why he/she is lying. Maybe his wife is his "sugar mommy"
