    By getting 1 dollar every day, I'd probably just buy a daily can of Coke or something... By getting it at once, I'd do something more... intresting.

      that is the grossest misuse of a quote I have ever seen. a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush is used to describe a persons feeling towards the odds of something not the impatience of someone.

      Yea who cares if you get 100 dollars now you will just spend it all then you wont have any more money but if you get 1 dollar every day for 200 days you can get more and you can buy more things or maybe even give some to the needy.

      if you had $100 dollars today, that would barely get you anywhere. Do realize that 200 dollars wouldn't do too much either but at least it has quantity and it can amount to something. Take a book in College. Most of those will require Triple digits each, but with 200 dollars, you could possibly kill two birds with one stone and maybe three if you're lucky.

      Okay dumbass let me speak and we'll keep it at that. $100 dollars today is only one time. $1 for 200 days straight is $200 dollars so I would rather wait 200 days for a huge profit then just get $100 right away only once so whoever picked blue you're either greedy or just dumb as fuck.

      I could invest the $100 immediately vs investing $1 per day vs investing $100 after 100 days. Would probably end up with more returns in shorter amount of time.

      Present value of an annuity where PV= 1, R= 7% APR, N= 200, Payment = 1 you end up with roughly 207 dollars. Which is greater than a present value of 100.

      Inflation is seriously like 2-3% annually, so you'd rather have $100 worth like $100 than $200 worth $198? That's a silly choice.

      *$1* *duh*.Second of all with inflation in 200 days $200 is worth approximately $197. Third of all there are masters of the stock market and could make $100 in to $200.BTW it's 38% now lol. Then there's the fact you have to wait for a long time you don't just get it instantly. Bye, Xavier

    If $1 a day for 100 years or even 100 months I would have picked it. It would have provided a lot more options and saved me on pocket change. $100 for one day is instant gratification but also something that can be saved for a rainy day if that rainy day happens to be tomorrow. That $1 per day for 200 days only gets so far if I'm spending it all on daily sodas.

    Stick $100 in a good growth stock mutual fund for 200 days and BAM. I have already made more than the $1 per day "deal."

    Can I have £s instead of $s? They're worth more.

    I don't have anything I want to spend $100 on, so I might as well be rewarded for patience.
