Facts About Money & People

- More of our fantasies are about money... than sex.
- Money is the leading cause of disagreements in marriages.
- 65% of Americans would live on a deserted island all by themselves for an entire year for $1,000,000.
- For $10,000,000 most of us would do almost ANYTHING! Including abandoning our family and friends and our church. A very high percentage of us would, for that same amount of money, change our race or sex.
What's really strange about this is, the statistics remain the same whether it's ten million dollars all the way down to three million. For three million bucks, most of us would do the same horrible things we would do for ten million. But, guess what? Few of us would do these things for a "measly" two million. And, 1 in every 14, would even murder someone for ten million bucks.
- If we could have any luxury in the world (and money didn't matter) more of us would choose to spend money on a butler and a maid than anything else.
- 90% of Americans who own pets buy them Christmas gifts.
- 92% of us would rather be rich than find the love of our lives.
- Money (or the lack thereof) is the biggest stress inducer in the lives of Americans. We worry more about money than our marriages, our health.
- Women have very fixed ideas on how much they are willing to spend on a bra. 38.3% of women won't spend $30 for a bra. 28.4% won't spend $50. 10% would pay as much as $75. And, only 3.5% would shell out $100. But, you know what? Almost 20% of women say they would pay almost anything for a bra. This is because they consider that the contents of what those bras are encasing is of extremely high-value.
- Nearly half of the people who sell their houses with furniture included will take all the light bulbs out of all the lamps when they vacate the premises.
- Most people won't bend over to pick up money lying on the sidewalk unless it's at least a dollar.
- There is about 405 billion dollars in circulation. Only 32 million of that amount is counterfeit. That means, the percentage of counterfeit money in America is .0079%. And, $20 bills are more often counterfeited than $100 bills.
- Fresh, crisp, clean bills are considered much more valuable than those which are old, wrinkled and dirty.
Let's flip a coin and try to guess whether it will come up heads or tails. Three times as many people guess 'heads' than 'tails'.
- One out of every four Americans believe their best chance of getting rich is by playing the lottery.
- 5% of lottery ticket buyers buy 51% of all tickets sold.

- A staggering 74% of us are influenced by how much we can win in a lottery as opposed to the odds of us winning.
- The odds of winning a lottery jackpot are about 10 million to 1.
- A person who drives 10 miles to buy a lottery ticket is 3 times more likely to be killed in a car accident while driving to buy the ticket... than... he is to win the jackpot.
- Only 6% of people in America regularly buy clothes tailor made just for them.
- 63% of us decide NOT to buy a product advertised on the Internet... because... we think the shipping and handling charges add too much to the order.
- Eight times as many Americans would rather use an ATM than deal with a real live teller.
- 83% of Americans still pay with checks instead of credit cards!

- 80% of Americans say giving personal information (especially their credit card information) over the Internet scares the living shit out of them.
- Two-thirds of Americans say they wouldn't let their spouse spend the night and have sex with another person for a million dollars. The average wedding in America costs a staggering $20,000.00.
More than one-third of American women consider money more important than good sex to the success of a marriage.
- When it comes to houses, more than anything else, people want a state-of-the-art kitchen.
-When people shop for a car, what they want more than anything else is reliability for the best possible price.
- People tip more on sunny days than they do on dreary days.
