As Kurt Vonnegut (or was it Baz Luhrman) suggested, every day do something that scares you.

    Spinning numbers

    I was looking at those numbers and thinking what I could do with even a small fraction of that amount of money.

    And that put me in mind of of a story I heard about a man who tried to get the electric meter on the side of his house to stop spinning. He spent the better part of an afternoon making his kids go around the house unplugging things while he stood at the meter to see if it had stopped. It never did.

      Trying buying stock in Halliburton. They’re getting a large percentage of that money — you could get a small percentage of theirs!

        My first thought was “Eeew! I’d feel dirty.”
        My second thought was “It takes money to buy stock.”
        My third thought was “I wouldn’t want to be holding that bag when the war crimes trials start.”

          Yeah. The above was not moral advice but fiscal advice. Personally I’d rather the money not to go them in first place.

    Sadly, it’s not as if the money being spent in Iraq would automatically go to build playgrounds otherwise. It’d jsut be wasted on some other damn fool thing.
