Do You Still Carry Cash? You’re One of the Last Ones
Cash isn’t quite dead yet, but it’s definitely on the way out.
According to a new survey, the majority of Americans don’t carry cash anymore. Only 41% of people say they always have cash on them . . . and 25% say they NEVER do. The rest have cash sometimes, but it’s not a big priority.
The survey also found when people do have cash, they only carry around $25 . . . which means they’re still going to use a credit card for anything significant.
Your Kid’s Rubber Duckies Are Probably Filled With Dangerous Bacteria
Oh man, Ernie is gonna be pisssssssed.
According to a new study by the University of Illinois and the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, your child’s RUBBER DUCKIE is a cesspool of dangerous bacteria.

So what should you do?
The researchers say you should either buy more expensive rubber ducks that are made from higher-quality polymers . . . or throw out the rubber ducks your kid plays with on a regular basis and swap in new ones.
