Donate Your Car?

donatecar.gifHave you thought about doing something that is meaningful, full of good will, and will make you feel like you have actually done something good this Christmas season? Many Americans wish to, but many never end up getting around to doing so. The Holidays are a busy time of year for everyone.

Car donations are a great way to help out a good cause, especially if you do not have the financial resources needed to make a large cash donation. In fact, you will find that you don’t even need to have a new car. Many donated cars are in less than perfect shape, but they are still appreciated.

Car donations are accepted in just about any condition, in most cases. Car donation programs are more willing to accept a non-working vehicle than one of your local charities. This is because most car donation programs partner with mechanics and other car experts. These professionals could turn your non-running car into one that works great. However, to do this time and money is needed. Unfortunately, you will find that most of your local charities do not have either. Therefore, if you have a car that is in less than perfect working condition, you may want to obtain the services of a donation program.

There are so many vehicles in and around my area that are just sitting in yards, rusting away. They aren’t really worth selling, and they are doing nothing more than taking up yard space and leaving a brown spot in the grass. If people knew that there was a way in which they could get rid of vehicle sitting in their yard and feel good about doing it, they probably would. Help do your part, and spread the word about this great cause.

Online Checking Accounts

Are you the digital age type of person that does all your banking online? Do you have several checking accounts, or just one? Some people I know have more than one account. They have their “bills” account, and the other account is the “toy” account. The accounts are usually kept at separate banks as well. That way you have two entirely different account and routing numbers. Not a terribly bad idea.

Finding a place to open an account is no problem either. There are a lot of banks online and you can open an account with a few shakes of your mouse tail. One such place is WaMu (Washington Mutual.) You can open a checking account with them for as little as one dollar. You also get a Debit Card, Free Checks, and access to online banking.

So if your looking to open another checking account WaMu could be a good place to start.

The more I think about this, the more I am beginning to  like the idea of doing this myself. Suppose someone gets your bank info and they wipe you out. You’re left with nothing, nada. If you had two separate accounts, at least the money in one of them would be safe, and you wouldn’t be completely broke.

You Can Live Forever, But There Is A Cost

Live ForeverI’ve got an interesting question (at least, to me) to pose for you.

Here’s the situation:

You can live forever. The catch is: you must murder one person per year you intend to stay alive.

For example: At thirty years of age, you take the deal. Your physical age is frozen at 30. For every year you live, you must take one human life. If you don’t kill within that year, you die. Multiple killings will do you no good. It has to be at least ONE per year.

Would you do it?

Being a big fan of Stephen King, I would love to see him work this into a book. He could make it a great story!

Personally, I think I’d do it, until I got tired of living.

There are just so many people that need killing, I don’t see the problem.
Child molesters, murderers, rapists, drug rehabs, people who don’t use blinkers, the list goes on and on.

Obviously, my answer says a lot about me. What about you?
