A Man Robs a Bank For $1 So He Can Go to Jail

I have had many discussions with various people about the living conditions for inmates. Some argue that the living conditions are terrible and a lot of people say that the living conditions are WAY to good. This story makes me think that life in prison is the way to go if you don't have health care.

According to the New York Time last Thursday, 59-year-old James Verone of Gastonia, North Carolina went into a branch of RBC Bank to rob it.  He handed the teller a note that read, quote, "This is a bank robbery.  Please only give me $1."

The Key To Being Rich By Middle Age

We all desire to be rich...it's the reason I bought a lottery ticket on my way to work this morning. According to a new study from AOL Jobs, the key to being rich by middle age is . . . NOT spending your 20s just kinda hanging out, really getting to know yourself.

In the study, a company called Digitas found that, right now, the benchmark for being wealthy is to pull in $200,000-a-year by about age 35. So what they are saying is I should have stayed in school. Ooops, I guess I messed that one up.
