After being made fun of for not having any idea who this A-Rod character is, it's become apparent that you people really seem to like him. So, uh, buy his house I guess? This and more, today on

1. If your dream is to live in Alex Rodriguez' house (who are you people?), now's your chance.

2. If you're more car guy than sportsball guy, then maybe you'd prefer this $9,500-per-night Bentley-inspired hotel room instead (no, really, who are you people?!).

3. Know what's more fun than lending someone money? Paying them more money for the privilege of doing so. If your bank starts charging you for having a checking account, get the heck outta there!

4. No, really. Banks are kinda being jerks about charging you more money in return for less these days.

5. Why get paid interest in money when you can get paid in ice cream?! Now this is a bank I can get behind.
