Poll: How much do you earn?

Thought this would be interesting as a demographic poll. List what you do, your annual salary and what city you work. I'll begin:

Hyperion Database Administrator

I slack off and read DVDTalk all day, so I only earn about $11 a week. I reckon my annual bonus is that I don't live in Jersey?

More than minimum wage.

Less than Bill Gates.

His accountant, and I am skimming off the top.



This isn't a poll. A poll has choices you click on and can remain anonymous.

This is a bragging thread.

I am on pace to make $6m over my career before I turn 58.

Hold on, let me scan my W2s and my penis. Should I have my financial advisor fax you copies of my 401(k) statement?

^^ that's it?

Not worth starting a thread over. EVERYONE at dvdtalk makes 6 figures, did you miss the memo?

The thread would only be exciting if you made over 7 figures a year

Why the aggro? I'd be happy to put in a good word for you with the boss.
