64. I didn't know people were so stupid that they needed to be told that.

The truth of the matter is, people go into debt over things like 1) cars that they need to get to work. They need unexpected repairs, and if it is a rough commute, an only cheap car will not always be good enough. 2) phones force people into contracts. If an unexpected event happens people cannot get out of these contracts. 3) rent in the city is not cheap. People share spaces, and then sometimes roomates move out leaving the other to foot the bill. 4) Job loss, 5) medical expenses....

I can't believe I need to lay this out.
