    I thought it could be a myth, but it's true. A guy named Kyle Macdonald was sitting at his desk and spotted a red paperclip sitting next to him on the desk. Inspired by a game called "Bigger and Better" (a game where you start off with something small and trade up to bigger items), he decided to put the concept to the test. So he went to craigslist and 14 trades later, the town of Kipling offered him a two story house in exchange for a movie role he had traded into. How about I'll let him tell his story. :)

    I would say, as long as you're healthy, do it. I don't know what it does to your immune system. But then again it is a good cause in more ways than one. For yourself and others.

    I've used H&R Block in the past, which was pretty much the going rate of $20 bucks or so. But I have used Credit Karma's which is free. Has a bunch of features and it's pretty easy to use.

    My wife and I need a more economic means of travel, especially because she does a lot of driving for her job. Instead of her putting miles and wear and tear on her fairly new car, we've considered getting a cash car with good mpg. Can anyone point us in the direction of the best way of going about doing this, and is this actually a smart thing to be doing with our stimulus checks? In the long run, I think it's a worthy investment using our stimulus money, especially if we use the car a lot.

    Would certainly be one heck of a thing if that were able to happen, but very unlikely.

    They may be cheaper, but there's no way you're gonna get me on a plane or a boat. Que a Dr. Seuss rhyme. :)

    It's interesting to see how many plates the gov has to spin in order to get economic relief out to Americans in need. Thanks for the legit breakdown!

    Agreed, totally. It would definitely cost money to implement this, but insurance companies could surely afford it. Plus, in the long run, it saves them money by keeping their clients healthy.

    How does this affect nonfilers? What if someone just went on Social Security, could they too get lost between the cracks?

    Set up family for sure, then open a business. Or two. Float shop (with very low rates to make floatation tanks more accessible to those that aren't rich) and then a documentary company. Would be cool to not ever have to worry about money and just go around looking for cool stories worth turning into documentaries.

    Really liking the documentary company idea.

    I'd buy a large RV and just live in it and travel all over the country. But this RV would be like tour bus size. Then I'd set up a chain of stores of some kind. Or perhaps even open up a restaurant.
