Roundup: Catch a Golf Ball with a Sports Car

Posted By Jim On 06/22/2012 @ 12:10 pm In Personal Finance | 1 Comment

Formula 1 legend David Coulthard, driving a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Roadster, tries to catch a golf ball hit by Jake Shepherd with his driver. I wonder how many times they tried this… and while I suspect this is a viral marketing video for someone (duh… Mercedes Benz), I still think it’s pretty crazy.

  • Robbing a bank is generally regarded as a bad idea, but it’s also not a great way to make money [3].
  • I’ve recently been reading a lot of interesting, detailed, and very long (but well worth the investment) financial articles by Matt Taibbi in Rolling Stone magazine, this one involves a look at USA v. Carollo [4], a case about bid rigging in municipal bonds.
  • Inequality is a big issue these days and we’ve been brainwashed [5] not to notice or care.
  • Are you a new graduate? Meg at Wise Bread shares five steps you should take after graduation [6].
  • I was enthralled about this look into the Sinoloa cartel and its leader [7], “El Chapo” Guzm├ín.

Have a great weekend!
