Is your child getting picked on at school? Chances are, his briefs are hanging on the flag pole because you drive him to school in that humiliating jalopy of yours. Avoid another trip to the counselor's office, and get yourself one of these luxury cars. You'd be surprised how affordable they are. This and more, today on

1. Up your street cred with one of these luxury rides; they're cheaper to own than you'd think.

2. But maybe street cred just isn't enough for you? Yeah, that's right, you need some air cred too! Be the envy of all commuters with your own flying car.

3. Mortgage rates are lower than ever before, and home prices aren't too shabby either. So why aren't more people buying?

4. Whoops! That large sum of money you had invested in a CD all those years ago has totally slipped your mind, and the date of maturity has come and gone. What happens now?

5. What adult hasn't wished to be a kid again at some point? Some people take this wish a bit too seriously and swipe the identities of children. Help is at hand.
