Friday Links

Here are a couple of articles that stuck out to me over the past few days.

Over at Wisebread, there's an article about the worst investments you can make.  Curiously, trying to buy and sell modern-age comics through Craigslist isn't on there. 

MSN reported on a woman who purchased an iPad from the trunk of a car for $180.  The iPad turned out to be a painted piece of wood with the icons taped on.  The moral of the story?  Only tamales should be purchased directly from trunks of cars.

Mr. Money Mustache wrote about how he came up with his pseudonym.  Hint: he, unlike my wife, does not think mustaches denote pederasty.

Annabelle at Shopping Detox announced that there will be more than a year of Shopping Detox.  I don't have anything funny to add here; I just like her writing.

And Andrea over at So Over Debt describes in vivid, spectacularly pungent detail what caused her to throw up in her mouth a little.  Curiously, this article was posted only a few days from when I introduced myself to her.  Coincidence?  I don't think so.

You're not supposed to figure it out that fast. Now that the element of surprise is gone, I'm not sure we can be friends. :)

Thanks for the mention!
