The 1 millionth visitor to this site came on May 18th and I totally missed it, if it weren’t for Henry at Binary Dollar I wouldn’t have even remembered…. argh (thank you everyone for your kind words of congratulations!). Oh well… instead of a 1 million visitor celebration, feast your eyes on these post gems.
- JLP talks about the rule of 72, 114, and 144. MBH tackles the math behind the rule of 72. I like the rule of >, make sure tomorrow’s $ > today’s $. QED.
- FMF tackles a shocker: men and women are on different pages about retirement.
- If you’re in a flood plain, get yourself some flood insurance. 1% is scary when the wind is blowing and the rain is pounding on your window.
- Flexo is living on the edge, asking for presidential quarters before they’re released, and getting tellers fired. Oooooh that guy’s a rebel, watch out!
- Henry has a doozy of a tip when it comes to debt: Pay Off Higher Interest Debt First. I know, I should’ve warned you to sit down first.

- Thinking about rocking an FNBO account? Sun already has it up and running… you’re too slow.

- Golbguru is working the new theme and explains what he looks for in an online account.
- Michael pulls out an old newspaper and checks out what the minimum wage could buy in 1973 compared to 2007. There are some really interesting finds… one interesting fact that he didn’t mention was the minimum wage of $1.60 in 1973 is the inflation adjusted equivalent of $7.45 today, though today’s minimum wage is a mere $5.15.
