Punch My Card

Back when I was in high school (and no, right now I don't particularly feel like admitting how long ago that was :-) ), there was a popular saying amongst my circle of friends. It was "punch my give-a-shit card," often simply abbreviated to "punch my card" or a vague hand-wave while holding your fingers in a card-grasping position (especially when teachers and/or parents were around), when something happened that you were theoretically supposed to care about but that, in reality, you just didn't.

The Magic Word:
Which planet is closest to the sun? (hint -- it's Mercury...)

All the big corporations depreciate their possessions, and you can, too,
provided you use them for business purposes. For example, if you subscribe
to the Wall Street Journal, a business-related newspaper, you can deduct the
cost of your house, because, in the words of U.S. Supreme Court Chief
Justice Warren Burger in a landmark 1979 tax decision: “Where else are you
going to read the paper? Outside? What if it rains?”
