[ - ] My parents have offered to help me with a down payment on an apartment, a not insignificant amount. I feel very uncomfortable with this, even though they are not "money with strings attached" people. That said, I would not be able to buy in my current city without assistance. I have WOHM my whole life, single parent, just a moderate salary in an expensive city. WWYD? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It occured to me today that I will be willing to donate 1 day of my life to show up on TV calling Hollywood people live while asking them to donate 10% of their fortune to help out Puerto Rico, Barbuda and the like. Wouldn't that make TV more entertaining? I would call Leo Di Caprio and JLo first. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

If every celebrity who asked others for money is willing to donate 10% of their fortunes, a TON of money would be collected! And every reduction of their fancy spending (20,000 sq feet second homes, private jets...) would mean less pollution of our planet. It's a win-win! [ Reply | More ]
