    1 trillion dollar prize

    as some of you may know, Pautzke bait company is offering a 10,000 prize to Oregon and Idaho anglers that break the current state records for steelhead ( Or, 35.8 lb in 1973 Idaho 30.3 lb in 1970 both natives ) with their bait, only hatchery fish count... in washington 28lbs wins you $5000... so with such a realistic, not at all a ****ing gimmick contest halibuthitman wants to get in on the action... soooo, I will give 1 trillion dollars to anyone who breaks these records with a hatchery fish in the same time period... no wait... I will give the d-bags at Pautzkes 1 trillion dollars if anyone breaks one of these records by lets say... hhhmmmm 2.5 lbs? wow pautzkes.. what a joke of a promo:rolleyes:

    Yeah, that promo is weak. and cheap. about like Cabela's prize this past summer. a million dollars for a bass or trout caught with the right tag. the 1,000,000 was to be paid out over 50 years. Fifty years!

    Seriously? Do you know what that works out to be!!!

    $1,000,000.00 / 50 years = 200,000.00 per year

    $200,000 per year / 12 months in a year = $1,666.67 per month

    Normally you get paid twice per month, unless you work for the state or some other once a month company. So......

    $1,666.67 per month / 2 times per month = $833.34 per check twice a month.

    Two week pay period

    $833.34 / 2 weeks = $416.67 per week

    40 hour work week

    $416.67 / 40 = $10.42 per hour.

    The math don't lie!!!!

    Ummm...Spydey...If I'm not mistaken...

    I do believe that your calculations are OFF by a bit.

    If you receive $200,000.00 for 5 years, you would have the 1 million (200 x 5). So, the winner would only get $20,000.00 per year (1,000,000 / 50).

    But, you still came up with the correct figure for a monthly receipts anyway ($1,666.67). How did you do that???

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher’s salary.

    Opps, my bad. I meant to type in 20,000.00 in both instances above, but typed in 200,000.00. Yet I calculated everything by 20,000.00 on my calcamapater. Just a little typo on my end.

    but still, that is crazy that they expect to have people chasing fish for a promo that really doesn't exist (the fish doesn't exist) or is near impossible to catch.

    the things some companies will do just to get a buck. What ever happened to good old elbow grease, a good name that was earned by good hardwork, honest customer relationship and service, as well as a sound product. Oh how priorities have changed in just the last 50 - 60 years. Sad, so sad. :(
