The interweb thingie.

Although with medical, legal and/or financial advice, I don't mind paying a professional. Although my questions are now better researched.

my buddy alex does my taxes, reads my credit card agreement, leases, and anything else important.

i was offered a new credit card at the bank recently, and had to say, ''sorry, i'm not allowed to make decisions like that.'' I'm glad I did, it would've screwed me.
