  • The Money Conversation
    I would have to say a Pet Rock(yes I am dating myself)
  • Dumbest Purchase
    Tix to see Glee- they lip synced!
  • Dumbest Purchase
    My dumbest purchase is the $50 I spend on a yearly basis to enter a fantasy football league with a group of men that know WAY more about football than I do. I think what is more perplexing is that I continue to participate year after year....
  • dumbest purchase
    lottery tickets
  • Alohhhhhhhhhhhhhh-HA!
    The "pineapple train" on the island of Maui that went around pineapple plants (and other Hawaiian flora) that were planted in the "infield" of an oval track that the train went on. Lots of ukelele music and silly Hawaiian "lore", for about $30 each person.
  • dumbest purchase
    A gym membership that I used approximately 3 times in one entire year. Definitely a waste of money!
  • dumbest purchase
    parachute pants
  • A Treadmill
    In theory, it sounded like a good idea at the time, but if you just use it for throwing your clothes on at the end of the day..... well, let's just say my kids enjoy it now.
  • Conseco Stock
    It was at $0.04/share when I bought it, went up to $0.06/share before being completely delisted and devalued to ZERO.
  • Dumbest
    Blockbuster account/rentals.
  • dumbest
    Gotta have clothes/shoes my teenager wanted and never wore!
  • Dumbest purchase
    There was this bowl I saw one night on qvc (couldnt sleep). It's a big plastic bowl with hollowed sections between the inner and outer surfaces. You are supposed to put stuff in the sections like green m&ms for St. Patricks party or black and orange for Halloween party

  • Custom Fit Bowling Ball
    I never used the @*#* thing as suddenly both of my thumbs (I'm ambidextrous) were arthritic ending a mediocre career in bowling.
  • Dumbest thing to spend $ on
    Catholic school tuition, my daughter is now an atheist.
  • Dumb and Dumber
    A pure bred beagle for my mother.
  • "I am out"
    Referee slacks when the next month, these were deemed ineligible to wear! Timing!!!
  • I was vulnerable
    One of those hand lotion kits that the guys at the mall hassle you about trying and buying!
  • iPOD
    I purchased an iPOD for my son and he lost it two weeks later.
  • Bread Machine
    Takes all the fun out of "home made" bread.
  • Groupons and Kiosk Zombies
    I too was vulnerable and bought one of those hand lotion kits and sadly more from the kiosk zombies at the mall. But, my most expensive and idiotic purchases would have to be for Groupons. I bought too much all at once and never had the time to use them.
  • dumbest thing ever spent money on
    mexican jumping beans
  • Bought or donated
    The money I gave as a kid to a religious fringe group.
  • Insurance loan
    Many years ago I took out a small loan on my life insurance policy. Dumb me didn't pay attention to it and interest has increased the loan 8-fold. If I don't want the amount deducted from the proceeds, I got to pay it off now. Dumb me.
  • Stupid Payment
    We paid a fee up front to sell a timeshare week. Of course, no luck. Dumb move years ago.
  • Dumb (with a Capital B)
    A Pet Rock (fortunately a LONG time ago)
  • tickets
    food that I had a coupon for, which never got eatten because it had rotted
  • dumb purchase
    I can think of a few - since the gym membership has already been stated - I will confess I bought an Oreck vacuum
  • reply this post
    freelance writer
  • Dumbest Thing
    Sue, I'll go you one better. The bread mixes I bought after we got rid of our bread making machine. Sheesh......

  1. From the story: "The city of Indianapolis also will consider tax incentives and funding for infrastructure required for the project, according to IEDC." Why would the City need to consider additional tax incentives when Lowe's has already bought the land and reached an agreement with IEDC to bring the jobs? What that tells me is that the City has already pledged the incentives, unofficially, and they just haven't had time to push it through the MDC yet. Either way, subsidizing $10/hour jobs is going to do nothing toward furthering the Mayor's stated goal of attracting middle and upper-middle class residents to Marion County.

  2. Ron Spencer and the entire staff of Theater on the Square embraced IndyFringe when it came to Mass Ave in 2005. TOTS was not only a venue but Ron and his friends created, presented and appeared in shows which embraced the 'spirit of the fringe'. He's weathered all the storms and kept smiling ... bon voyage and thank you.

  3. Not sure how many sushi restaurants are enough, but there are three that I know of in various parts of downtown proper and all are pretty good.

  4. First off, it's "moron," not "moran." 2nd, YOU don't get to vote on someone else's rights and freedoms that are guaranteed by the US Constitution. That's why this is not a state's rights issue...putting something like this to vote by, well, people like you who are quite clearly intellectually challenged isn't necessary since the 14th amendment has already decided the issue. Which is why Indiana's effort is a wasted one and a waste of money...and will be overturned just like this has in every other state.

  5. Rick, how does granting theright to marry to people choosing to marry same-sex partners harm the lives of those who choose not to? I cannot for the life of me see any harm to people who choose not to marry someone of the same sex. We understand your choice to take the parts of the bible literally in your life. That is fine but why force your religious beliefs on others? I'm hoping the judges do the right thing and declare the ban unconstitutional so all citizens of Wisconsin and Indiana have the same marriage rights and that those who chose someone of the same sex do not have less rights than others.
