Bash.org, if you’re not familiar with it, is one of those sites that’s “not for anyone under 18… or over 18, for that matter.” It’s a collection of user-submitted quotes from IRC, ranging from “purely stupid” to “stupendously hilarious.” I didn’t expect to find anything personal finance related there, but sometimes even sites like Bash can surprise you.
culturejammer: you know what pennies are AWESOME for?
culturejammer: throwing at cats
culturejammer: it only costs a single penny
culturejammer: and they’ll either chase it, or get hit by it and look pissed off
culturejammer: i now use that system to value prices of things
culturejammer: for example, a thirty dollar game has to be at least as awesome as three thousand catpennies
I can’t really recommend you throw pennies at cats (although, my brother does it, and it’s pretty friggin funny), but I do recommend you pause and think about money as it passes out of your hand, and whether or not the value of your purchases matches the amount you’re paying for them.
