University learning is not cheap. The annual fee for attending Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey is close to thirteen thousand dollars — for New Jersey residents who commute.

There’s nothing more gross, messy and revolting than realizing that taking care of your daily bathroom business is going to spank you double time in the wallet through no fault of your own — except for uninspired brand loyalty. Here’s my favorite bathroom tissue: Scott Rapid-Dissolving. I like it because it works as advertised and it is smooth and silky.
If you want to run a taxi in New York City, it’s going to cost you $766,000.00USD to buy a medallion for the right to run that taxi. That cost is up 126% from $339,000.00 in 2004.
