I think those figures are independent of each other but $10k a day seems grossly inflated.

Probably talking about 10k, watch your business would earn per day, to 250k, what your actual take home pay would be after expenses.

Here's a news story from Scientific American. You're welcome.

Men ejected from Saudi festival, deported for 'being too handsome'

An annual culture festival in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh was interrupted when three men from the United Arab Emirates stand were ejected for being too handsome. "A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds [that] they are too handsome and that the Commission members feared female visitors could fall for them," a news service said, adding that "the festival's management took urgent measures to deport the three to Abu Dhabi."

The bears who like to get high: Russian animals are so addicted to aviation fuel they sniff it until they pass out

These brown bears are keen to play with discarded barrels - because they have developed a nose for aviation fuel.
The creatures sniff kerosene and gasoline from containers left in the Kronotsky Nature Reserve in the far east of Russia.
They take deep breaths for minutes at a time before digging a shallow hole and lying in a 'nirvana' position.

The fuel is used to power generators and helicopters used by nature reserve workers.
Photographer Igor Shpilenok, 52, spent seven months with the community of bears.
He said some of the addicted predators even stalked helicopters, waiting for take off and drops of fuel to leak onto the hard soil for them to hoover up.
He added: 'In another case a helicopter brought a few barrels of gasoline.

Bethel Park police said Frank J. Zahler, 70, asked two people he was talking with at the Barnes and Noble to watch his briefcase, saying he had "Bomb making material from the Boston Marathon Bombing inside," Officer James Linz wrote in a criminal complaint.

“It’s crazy. I didn’t have anything. I was making a joke with the kid. These kids are whacky man, you know. What can you do with them? That’s America today. In my day, we would have laughed it off,” Zahler said while sitting in the back of a police car.

Woman calls cops to report that kittens are having sex in her yard

The Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., police blotter is filled with regular-sounding reports of stolen property and vehicle damage, and then there's the third item on the list. A woman called the police — and we're assuming this was a 911 call — to report that "a neighbor’s kittens were having sex in her yard."

A NEW DOCUMENTARY called Unclaimed claims to introduce the world to former Army Sergeant John Robertson, lost over Vietnam in 1968 and left behind for over four decades.
The Toronto Star reports Edmonton filmmaker Michael Jorgenson found Robertson, 76, living in a rural Vietnam village stooped with age, unable to speak English, remember his birthday, or names of the children he left behind in the U.S.

http://www.yardbarker.com/nhl/articles/msn/video_reporter_who_said_chicago_blackhawks_had_a_tremendous_amount_of_sex_fired/13542461

Susannah Collins, the sideline reporter who attained viral infamy due to her on-air slip-up on Tuesday when she uttered the now-famous Freudian slip about the Chicago Blackhawks having a "tremendous amount of sex" during the regular season instead of "tremendous amount of success," has been fired by Comcast SportsNet Chicago, according to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times.
