I've never been 100% right about anything.

Well, except for my remark above....

I feel this type is more common than many people notice (or know). Take for example, annuities sold to people when its not an appropriate choice. Or "advisors" steering people into products because they have a vested interest in it.

The old saying still applies... buyer beware.

On this topic, heard something good on Clark Howard's program today: don't buy a used car from Georgia or Alabama without first checking its VIN on the federal site for it (actually from any state, but especially these two because of the recent flooding). Lots of con-artists who are going to take advantage of this to, err, wash the titles. Sorry, no pun intended.

Same thing happened in Texas around 2001 due to flooding...then Louisiana from Katrina. Pirhannas are all around us, unfortunately.

Yeah! One of my all-time favorite albums.

Let me google that for you

How could we ever forget Nick Danger?

"A Child's Garden of Grass" also comes to mind. (uuun tally man)
