The effective non-use of cash

Hey. I've never done this before............a CHP new topic.
Pretty cool!

For the past couple of years, interest rates have been
low and everyone seems to be throwing money at me,
even though my income is not even close to "poverty"
levels. I truly believe that with enough creativity and
brainpower, I could effectively "borrow" my way through the remainder of my life. It's tempting. My kids don't
really expect to get much when I am gone anyway.
I can see that we could be "livin' large" right up to my demise. Probably won't do it, but I can see how it could work.

Why not, John?

Remember, as Nietsche said, the Superman is not affected by rules that were made for ordinary people.

I salute your boldness!

JG, were you a bunco artist in another incarnation?
Where I come from, people who die owing everybody
in town were called "deadbeats".

Cheers,

Charlie
