8:25 am
don't try to get there right away. nudge it up by 2% a year if you're not there yet. >> build an emergency cushion before putting in your 401(k). should you? >> not if you're getting matching dollars. split the difference. try to put half your money into savings for emergencies and half money into 401(k). once you have the emergency portion, put it all into the 401(k). >> this is a good one. roth 401(k) or the regular 401(k)? what is the difference? >> roth 401(k) is a lot like roth ira. if you think your tax rate is going to be higher in retirement than it is right now, this is a good thing to do. particularly good for young people. it's not an all or nothing. can you split the difference. >> great part about this, we'll keep the conversation going. jean, thank you so much. >> sure. >> we'll keep it going in the orange room. send your #get a plan. we'll get you answers from jean. coming up, cary elwes shares

9:05 am
>> that makes no sense. >> karma? >> i follow that logic, i'm still on a plantation picking cotton. >> oh. >> this is so wrong. so wrong. >> let me tell you, you're absolutely right. and beyond women, he's basically saying anyone who wants to rise to where he is, by the way, just wait it out. >> it's worked well for me, so it's okay. >> yeah, you don't have to ask. it will just come to you. like you put it out there and it will come to you. >> and bringing karma in there. >> and then, okay, you blew it. why not apologize? >> what he ended up doing was he backtracked a little bit. he released a statement on twitter, which seems to be everybody's way of apologizing these days. he said, i was inarticulate regarding how women should ask for a raise. our industry must close the gender pay gap so a raise is not needed because of a bias. the front page of "usa today," i happened to notice this. the high-tech pay gap, minorities earning less.
9:06 am
women in technology generally a minority as well. but here it goes on to point out that hispanics in particular, they earn $16,000 on average less than people in technology in those same jobs. >> wow. system's working great. >> yeah. but i guess if we put it out there, our karma will make us eventually earn the same. >> women tried that for a while, right? trust the system. didn't work for generations. >> it does not work. >> there's an old saying, my karma ran over your dogma. >> oh. >> is that really? >> ouch. >> i saw it on a bumper sticker once. >> i'm falling for everything today. >> that's right. okay, here's a question. here's a question for you. how many people when you're taking a shower multi-task and take a whiz at the same time? >> everyone pees in the shower. >> i do not. >> what? >> you're kidding me. >> never? >> guess what. they invented toilets. >> we're conservationists.
9:07 am
>> in the gym especially. i don't want to take a shower in the gym. you've got to go and stand in a shower where somebody else just took a whiz? >> haven't you seen that "seinfeld" clip? go ahead. play it. >> you went in the shower? >> yeah. so what? i'm not the only one. >> do you go in the shower? >> no, never. >> do you? >> i take baths. >> what was i supposed to do? get out of the shower, put on my bathrobe, go all the way down to the other end, come all the way back? >> did you ever hear of holding it in? >> bingo! >> no, al. you get out of the shower, you wet the floor, you get cold, you use it. then you've got to get back in. >> here's a thought. how about going before? >> sometimes it hits you. that warm water. >> so we're asking -- we bring this up. it's not just random. we bring this up -- maybe it is.

9:16 am
year they took to capitol hill. >> americans whisper the word alzheimer's because their government whispers the word alzheimer's. and although a whisper is good it's still not enough. it needs to be yelled and screamed to the point that it gets the attention and funding it deserves and needs. i dream of a day when my charity is no longer necessary and i can go back to being the lazy self-involved man child i was meant to be. >> "hilarity for charity," seth and laura are the founding members. we'll get to hilarity for charity. to see you testify there on the senate, it's a hard thing to do. and you -- i think you roused the crowd there. although it took some doing because apparently only two senators showed up? >> yeah. in a way it was indicative of exactly what i was there to talk about, which is how the government does not prioritize
