On How Evangelical Christians Do Money: On Tithing

@chickpeas akimbo oh COME ON. You know exactly what she meant- and she certainly wasn't condoning the actions of rapists in BIBLICAL TIMES. Sheesh.

On We Need a New Kind of Financial Advice

@iseeshiny Ooh, whoa, I cannot agree with that. A match is FREE MONEY if you're vested. I live paycheck-to-paycheck, but I have 15k in the 401k due largely to a company match. Even if I withdrew early and paid the penalties, I would still come out ahead. ETA: it also serves as a savings account for people like me who have a really, really hard time saving.

On 10 Days in California for $500

@Jake Reinhardt seriously. Editors, that line should not be on the site. It's incredibly insensitive and simply wrong. Please take it out if the article. The author is equating homelessness with disease.

On 10 Days in California for $500

"to soothe the brutal cold I definitely got from shaking that homeless guy’s hand on Haight Street in San Francisco three days earlier" SERIOUSLY, WHAT. Grow up; that is a shameful thing to say, let alone write down and publish. This would have been great if the author hadn't insulted the guy graciously driving her around SF: "and the only time all day that Tim shut up (priceless)and the only time all day that Tim shut up (priceless)" Maybe the author could be less bratty on her intriguing investment in her future (you know, her vacation).

On "Offices For Introverts" Designed By Someone Who Doesn't Understand Introverts

@Gef the Talking Mongoose Agreed! These are not offices for introverts, there are offices for human beings. No one likes to work in a cube. NO ONE.

On How I Paid Off Nearly $80,000 in Student Debt in Less Than Five Years

@beastlyburden I hate advertorials! I mean, I've been kind of a bear lately about expressing my ire to linking to things you have to purchase to read, but I hate it. This article is basically one long jump. It's title should read more like an upworthy article.
