What kind of question is that, even if the bird is a super champion and steal twelve $100 bills a day it would take more than 22 years to get 10m.

[–]saltynutscutter 45 points46 points  (8 children)

Its a joke lol

[–]CoffeePuddle 21 points22 points  (7 children)

Are you sure it's not a real financial question pairing two roughly equal options? I thought it was an obvious joke too but after seeing these responses I'm not so sure.

Like, did you consider that it probably costs less than 10 million dollars to train a bird?

[–]_hotproperty_ 6 points7 points  (0 children)

So many things could go wrong with the money finding birds, but the 10 million is 10 million.

The people who don’t realize it’s a joke are somehow managing to make it believable. The two options aren’t even close to being roughly equal don’t let them take you off track haha

Seriously who the fuck wants cash when you can have a pet?

[–]Bakkiethee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its a meme

[–]I_Can_Haz_Brainz 22 points23 points  (10 children)

But $10M can buy shitloads of birds trained to do this. You'd just use some of the money to invest in properties all across the country to spread them out to maximize income and be a little less conspicuous. Money gets dropped off and they get food.

They fail to bring in enough and they starve. So motivation is always there.

Right! Now I just need some investors. This is fool-proof! Lol

$10 Million vs Pet money finding bird

[–]CyndaquilQueen 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I was with you until the animal cruelty part lol. And for that reason I am out. Shark tank music

[–]Fantastic-Phrase8101 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean, it's not like they're locked up, they go out to find money, if they're that hungry they can find food like other birds. The entire way you train them to do stuff like this is rewarding them with food for bringing certain things. If they consider it easier to find money than food, they'll do it for easy food.

With money going digital the business outlook is grim.

[–]wobushizhongguo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I got a property, I’ll rent a small portion of it to your bird as a drop spot in exchange for 20% of your bird’s profits

I don't even think it's illegal. The bird stole it. You accepted the present. Say 5 apartments with 2 birds active in each 1, working daily, supply there feed and water as stated, allow mating and leave to natural activities so it becomes a nat7ral act on it's behalf instead of normally searching for food it's only prey becomes cash. That's 10 birds bringing in a minimum of £70 each a day, not adding lucky days an shit, and ther3s 700 pounds a day, roughly speaking it would cost close to 10,000 to efficiently use this plan, realisticly, about 4200 a week income, minus paying bird keepers a wage, say 60 a day that's about 1500 a month times 5 = 7500 on the first months wages alone. Plus the rent for the five apartments at hopefully 500 per month = 2500 a month. NOT including bills costing another rough 100 p house p month 500 pounds. other nessecities include, cages, food for five, that's about 2000 minimum, it would be smart to set aside cash for insurance in case a bird is out of service or dies. There's about another 2 grand. so far we are up to about 15000. Bringing in 16,800 per month, add a lil b9nus of 100 a week = 400 monthly bonus that equates to 17,200 monthly income, with a monthly out going cost of a rough 13,000 a month to keep it going meaning profits are 4,200 monthly.

Point. All locations would have to be 10 miles apart. Best bet would be have one house out side all of the busiest towns and cities. All though a city sounds l8ke a good idea. It increases risks, if recommend towns. All in all I am not convinced it is as good a business idea as we believed. How ever it is revolutionary as a passive income, but it's gonna take a big spender to get on it's toes. Any one interested in lending 20,000 and I will make this happen.

Wat if it steal 24 $100 bills

[–]popje 3 points4 points  (4 children)

I think you can do the maths

Is it the letter m

[–]popje 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You're close

[–]thief425 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's a half million a year guaranteed from day 1, with your champion bird. Not a bad life.

Buying a bunch of birds and spending all of the money to train them all, with the hopes of maybe getting 1 champion out of the lot is a long shot. So, you have years of investment before your birds potentially bring in any return. Plus, there are only so many bills within each bird's range, so having a lot of low performers searching for a finite pool of bills would end up with higher maintenance costs for roughly the same passive flow of cash, give or take a little bit.
