If there's one word to describe this silly little blog, it would be "eductional". Because my main goal in logging on and posting nearly every day is to open the eyes of the reader to the intellectually stimulating things one finds across the globe. Actually, we're going to take a quick break from poop and tampons today to share a very interesting podcast from This American Life about how money is really just fiction. But specifically I wanted to share the section about the state of money in Brazil just a few decades ago. They were experiencing 80% inflation every MONTH! For 50 years! Super interesting show. If you can't commit to the full hour, just listen to the Brazil bit in Act One. Do it!
p.s. I don't know what I would do without This American Life. It's gotten me through many a lonely night and scary bus ride.
