Is the 500 gigahash ASIC miner from Butterfly Labs a good investment?

I have a friend who has no problem with dropping tons of money on something like this, which is, of course, $22,500. As he is practically useless with computers, I offered him a deal; I'll do the maintenance and actual management of the device if he buys it and I get a 50% cut of all profits.

Now, from what I've inputted into profitability calculators on the net, we'd be making about $8,500 per month. That'd be $4,250 for each of us, and that's no small sum at all.

Would it be wise to go through with this? By the looks of it, we'd be sitting pretty with all of that extra spending money. I know it'd help out a whole lot around here, that's for sure.
