Move Your Money

I've been contemplating moving all my banking to the credit union. Watching this is very convincing.

So you base this easy, obvious, straightforward financial decision on ... a movie?
Is there a credit union anywhere who doesn't offer you WAY better terms than almost any bank?
Would it be so hard to just ... you know ... do the arithmetic?

I do movies more than I do math. My bank used to be a local bank. It got gobbled up by a larger bank and that got consumed by a larger more regional bank until finally it was consumed by the Royal Bank of Scotland.

I haven't switched yet because I have a bunch of accumulated points at my current bank that I haven't had a chance to cash in on something. I'll probably wait until summer to go through the switch.

I heard you the first time. And I believe you, you truly do movies more than math. It provides a poor roadmap to reality. Case in point:
"The GREED of men like Mr. Potter led to the Great Depression."
Yuh-huh. The grasp of history and the math skills here, they are closely matched. Maybe Steven Freakonomics Levitt can help you out with that.

Your last posting was nearly a month ago! Hop to it! Keeping busy I assume? I just haven't had the energy for much posting myself these days. Much easier to get mad during the election, now I just get depressed.

Looking at what you "won," I can see why you're depressed.

I'm depressed because Darcy died a year ago just before Xmas, and her last year was a bad one.
