Gift cards invite fraud. LOTS of it. So, expect more of this: Walmart, Target, Best Buy take steps to curb gift card fraud.
The changes include reducing purchase limits on store-branded gift cards in a single transaction, limiting how much can be loaded onto the cards, and prohibiting the redemption of store-branded gift cards for other gift cards.
The Norwegian Gunnar dude visits tiny Apricale in Italy and I think I am in love with it, wow! Apricale – The Address of Artists.
I have posted here about the remote Sentinel Island where a few dozen surviving tribesmen live alone without contact with the outside world. And then some crazy Christian fanatic decided to go there to preach to them, wtf! Well, he was killed and probably his dead corpse will wipe them all out, sad! American killed by bow and arrow-wielding tribe while trying to visit remote Indian island.

Great personal finance article if you are looking for financial advice. This is the single most important thing to know about the financial advice you’re getting. “Are you a fiduciary?”. Yes, it is a key question. But don’t stop there. Ask them to sign this oath on the firm’s letterhead too!

You know how I despise clickbait headlines leading to useless posts. And in the pic below I will show you exactly what I am talking about. The pic is in REVERSE chronological order. First with the clilckbait is of course View From The Wing who comes with the overly dramatic “Police Stormed Room of United Pilot, Accusing Him of Waving Naked at TSA From His Window”. Wow…throwing in there the words ‘naked” and of course TSA who he favors to pound constantly. Not to be outdone, smelling traffic hits, here comes Point Me to the Plane with “United Pilot Charged After Standing Naked Touching Himself Waving & Gyrating at TSA Agent from Westin Hotel Window”. I mean, how can you sound different but pound om the same clickbait terms hey? And of course, here comes next Live and Let’s Fly, always on the lookout to impress his two idols he tries so hard to imitate every day in his blog. Of course, create controversy and hope to invite Gary to debate him, think of the clicks lol. “In Defense of the Naked United Airlines Pilot”. My point: DO NOT CLICK ON THIS CRAP!!!!
