3. Ever win a spelling bee as a kid, or did you get straight A's one semester? Well, for her '80s-rific academic achievements, this kid got the gift that keeps on accruing. Should she cash in on her U.S. savings bonds?

4. Reportedly, copy editing is not the most dangerous job in America. So what is?
