10/1    "Maria Sharapova could be yours for a cool $10,000" - Y! Sports Blogs
        http://www.csua.org/u/mi8
        So affordable.  I wonder what the rate is for not-cute-but-busty
        Serena Williams.

5/9     I'm stock newbie. Let's say  I made $1000 in Jan 2012 and then
        lost  $1000 in Feb 2012, does that mean I'm not liable to pay
        any tax given that I made $0?
        \_ Yes.

3/6     When I first joined my company, I got a sign-in bonus which was
        deposited into my savings account the first month. I also got my
        moving fees reimbursed, which was also deposited into my savings
        account a few months later. However, neither entries show up on
        W2 or any other official records (not even ADP). I asked my boss
        if I should talk to someone about this, and he said "don't worry

11/27   Whoa, since when did FDIC coverage go up to $250,000? That's cool.
        So is this coverage per customer per bank, per account per bank,
        total per person, etc?
        \_ I believe that it is per customer per bank. Not 100% sure though.
           \_ Yes, and you can get even more with joint accounts, etc.:

7[31    Suppose you have a few hundred thousand dollars in the bank earning
        minimum interest rate and you're not sure whether you're going to
        buy a house in 1-5 years. Should one put that money in a more
        risky place like Vanguard ETFs and index funds, given that the
        horizon is only 1-5 years?

9/21    I'd like to run a test algorithm on the stock market. Where's a
        good source to get stock market price (minute-per-minute resolution)
        from?
        I've been away procreating. Looks like wall is no more. Where have all of
        the old-timers gone to chat/argue/share? How are we all communicating these
        days. Sorry for the ignorant questions. :( -- joeking

The winning bid was $10,000, which seems a bit below market value. Lobbing up the awkwardness quotient is the fact that Ms Sharapova's boyfriend apparently got outbid for the date. That means that for her, a $10,000 bid is the equivalent of getting taken out for a McDonald's Extra Value Meal. Now, in auctioning off the mealtime services of a beautiful athlete, some may see crass, thinly-veiled sexism. We've got ourselves a bit of a financial crisis in America these days, right?
