Reshared post from +Barack Obama

Matt Romney says his dad Mitt will release his tax returns "as soon as" President Obama releases his birth certificate. Guess he hasn't seen our mugs?

There's really no way to make the birth certificate conspiracy completely go away, so we might as well laugh at it — and make sure as many people as possible are in on the joke. Get your Made In The …

VOTD: Ryan Gosling, Jim Carrey and Eva Mendes Celebrate Christmas ‘Drunk History’ Style

If it feels like far too much time has gone by since the last episode of the great Funny or Die series Drunk History , this new Christmas special is here to ease your pain. The conceit of the short is mostly the same as in past ones: someone gets really hammered and narrates a story, badly. Actors then lipsync/act out the stammering, wasted tale.
This one is a reading of ‘The Night Before Christmas,’ with Ryan Gosling , Eva Mendes , and Jim Carrey gamely playing along as the talent. Check it …

This is just crap. Another reason to use cash and not have a need for loans or CCs. Of course the poorer you are the harder it is to only use cash for everything.

Tweet your way to a bad credit rating!

So the newest credit-rating gimmick being used by lenders is leveraging your social media. As part of your application, you're asked to provide your Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, etc. accounts, and then, based on who you know, and what is known about them, your credit score is adjusted up/down. Oh, and they reserve the right to let your friends know if you default.

Um … no. Or, rather, hell no.

Of course, if they all do it, it would be hard to avoid. And one could argue it harkens back to the day when you got a loan from your local banker, who knew your rep around town and what sort of deadbeats and/or fine, upstanding citizens you hung out with.

But … no.

It's amusingly framed as a way to get you, the customer, access to additional services [if you're creditworthy enough], but I suspect the intent is to actually deny you access to services if they don't like the cut of your credit jib. And I do have to wonder if the content of your social media won't start to play a role, too ("Fiscal conservatism is associated in our heads with better credit risks, so be sure and red-flag anyone who votes for a liberal, or who speaks well of OWS, or …"). It's a great way to get around all those things you aren't supposed to decide loans on (race, national origin, religion, etc.), esp. if you keep your algorithm nice and quiet … #ddtb

Facebook and Twitter can hurt your credit score

You already knew Facebook and Twitter can hurt relationships with friends, family, or your significant other. Facebook and Twitter may hide another danger: They can hurt your credit score.

So true and I don't know why. Maybe we aren't used to paying for things on the phone? Most of us are used to buying a phone and doing everything on it for free. I do recognize the app store is nothing new though.

This Is How I Feel About Buying Apps

I came across a funny cartoon the other day that captures an interesting aspect of our purchasing behavior. We are perfectly willing to spend $4 on coffee (for some of us this is a daily purchase), or $500 on devices that you can argue we don’t really need. However, when it comes to buying digital items, such as apps, most of which are priced at $1, we suddenly get really cheap. Why?

Here are some reasons. The first is that we are anchored by the price of cate…
