Build the Perfect Emergency Fund by Dropping Netflix for Ten Millennium

How to build the perfect emergency fund

Think of all the extra money you could save just by cutting back on dining out or going without Netflix for a couple months.

The $7.99 per month Netflix plan allows non-HD streaming on one television. How many years would one need to go without this Netflix plan to build the perfect emergency fund? You know, one that could cover the perfect number of financial emergencies?

Family of Boy Injured by 'Grenade' Has $1M in Medical Bills

“They messed up,” Alecia Phonesavanh told ABC News' "20/20." “They had a faulty search warrant. They raided the wrong house.”


Habersham County officials will not pay the medical bills, citing a "gratuity" law in Georgia that prohibits them from compensating the family.

$1,000,000 / $7.99 / 12 = 10,430

You may need to drop Netflix for 10,430 years to cover the emergency expense of just one rogue SWAT team. The sooner you start saving, the sooner you will be done! Keep in mind that if you live in a neighborhood with multiple rogue SWAT teams, then you should adjust the math accordingly. 10 millennium per team should suffice.

"Habersham County officials will not pay the medical bills": where's a mad bastard with a gun when you need him? Why must the mad bastards always kill innocents when there are so many better candidates around?

I normally don't have much faith in insanity defenses, but your argument might convince me that it has its merits!

It would seem that a bastard must be crazy to choose the innocent as the primary target.
