Weekly Links: 10/3/9 With Random Knowledge

by Matt B

SickyAfter being sick for most of the week, I’m finally starting to feel better! And just in time for my 3 day weekend, no less. My apologies for leaving all of you hanging the past few days, but I could barely concentrate on anything, so writing was absolutely out of the question.

Even though I couldn’t write, I did get plenty of reading done, and once again my fellow personal finance bloggers did not disappoint. I could have easily linked to about 30 posts that I loved this past week, but I have chopped them down to six.

Best of the Week:

Now that Moolanomy is rockin’ some staff writers, I’ve got a feeling that the (already great) site will be even better. Kudos to Pinyo for allowing multiple contributors to give many different perspectives.

Carnivals:

I finally got in some submissions this week!

Random Knowledge:

  • Adirondack Park in upstate NY (where I used to vacation every summer) is larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Glacier, and Olympic Parks Combined.
  • Oak trees do not produce acorns until they are 50 years old and above.
  • Vikings used the skulls of their enemies to drink from…pretty sweet if you ask me!
  • Ever wonder what the WD in WD-40 stands for? Wonder no more…It’s Water Displacer!
