migunnemsae:
71% of Net, 59% of gross. Sweet.

This is the best I've seen so far.

Can anyone do any better?


I knew a banker once who made a substantial 6 figure salary. He gave away 90% of his income away to charities and lived on 10% in a modest middle class lifestyle, about the same I was living on (35k-40k per year back in the late 80's).
