For those of you who have no clue what that title is about, have no fear. CW does enough reading and browsing of the news during his slack time at work for his entire readership.
Basically for 2011 the social security deductions, previously at 6.2% annually, have been cut to 4.2%. That's essentially a 2% raise for everyone (or at least everyone earning below $106K per year, so 99.99% of my readership). So my question is, what are ya'll gonna do with that cash? A few thoughts for the Americans amongst you (I have no clue what kind of crazy shit foreigners spend their money on):
Jet ski - Don't think 2% is a lot of cake? Assume you make ~$50k, that two percent difference is a cool Grand. That's money to burn. Coupled with the fact that if you live up in the northeast like I do jetski salesmen would practically fall over themselves to sell a Seadoo right now (its snowing for what feels like the 17th consecutive day). Plus, Kenny Fucking Powers rides a Jet ski, you'd be in good company.
Gamble with maestro- I know, I know. He let you down, he let himself down. But you know what the thing is about gamblers? You're never really up, sure you win once in a while, but all in all you're going to lose. Might as well do it with the Maestro, right? A guy to share your pain with and trade war stories about times you were this close (If you're reading this Maestro, you're going to have to make me eat my words before I stop, CW may not be "constantly winning" but he definitely wasn't losing this weekend either).
Tighty-whitey fiscally conservative method of "saving it"- Definitely the chosen method of our other new blogger set to debut this week (fittingly he's chosen to go by H.E. Pennypacker). Consumate logical thinker, presenting essentially the complete opposite of my loosely held opinions. Enjoy collecting that .75% interest, I'm sure those $3 bucks will come in handy at the end of the year.
Buy an I-Product - Seems to be the standard these days, everyone running around wasting their money on overpriced gadgets that have an apple logo. Shits ridiculous. Apple is about to announce record breaking earnings for the 4th quarter of 2010 and supposedly everyone and their freaken uncle is in debt. Gee, I wonder why.
Donate it to a blogger- We're poor and advertising free. Plus now we have to make up for the Maestros losings.
Most likely blowing on acohol- I assume most of my readers are chooing this method, so am I.
