The Sunday Paper #3

It's that time of the week again. Who would've thought that I would actually start looking forward to these things? Or maybe it's just because I can use it as an excuse for a little break from my studying. Anyways, here goes.

Get Rich Slowly asks, "Who Is Responsible for the Payday Loan Trap?" Yes, you heard correctly, it is a trap. He goes on to make a good argument comparing credit abuse to drug addiction. Yes, that's right, you heard correctly once again. Very interesting, check it out.

Same Writer conducted an informal study comparing fuel efficiencies at different speeds, so that we can save money on gas. Not quite what this guy does, but maybe, just a little bit more practical (if you call driving 55 mph on Atlanta highways practical).

I Will Teach You to be Rich explains how to impress friends, get girls, and lose weight. How, you ask? Simply by setting smaller goals for yourself. I totally agree. Quite appropriate since I'm learning about behavior change in one of my classes.

Punny Money goes onto explain that you can advance your career through heavy drinking. Is this a week of bold statements or what? First comparing credit abuse to drug addiction, and now this? Just goes to show that you never really graduate college - the only thing that changes is what you're drinking.

Dumb Little Man tackles a topic that no one really likes to talk about: "Answers to 10 Embarassing Health Questions" Got an itch down there?

Personal Finance Advice explains how taxes really work. Interesting take on it. I must admit, I've never really thought about it from the rich guy's perspective, seeing as I've never been the rich guy - and hence this entire blog. Personally, I think the owner shouldn't offer the discount and should instead invest in education, but hey, I'm only one guy.

Simple Dollar covers a topic that is near and dear to my heart. Food. He makes some good suggestions on how to cut down on your food expense. I'm making myself a mental note to write something on this later.

Sorry, this took a lot longer than I expected, so I'm just going to leave it as a list. I'll come up with witty comments tomorrow.

Note: edited 1/22 to increase entertainment value

See, isn't that better?
