If I ever end up in Tokyo, I would go to one of these.
I agree with annieem— I make money so I can pay people to do things for me. I was also reminded of a psychology experiment I was a part of ($10/vial of spit) in which one of the tasks was to stick your hand into beyond freezing water for as long as possible. I didn’t last very long. After I was done, I found out from the researcher that gentlemen tended to kill themselves, straining every muscle of their bodies to keep their hands in and the researcher actually had to cut them off. But there was no benefit to them in doing so except proving their manliness to the grad student running the experiment.
In a search for amusement after a grumpy day, I came across Teh Magick Testicles of Perspicacity. It’s funny because it’s true! And the blog has a great name and theme.

Oh, and how could I forget Donna Freedman and a discussion of what goes through our minds when folks with money problems use us as their emergency fund. No matter what you do, there’s always some guilt about whether it’s the right thing.
Other folks are doing February challenges:
Broke Professionals is not going to the grocery store (or eating out, presumably) for a month. We’ve done that by necessity before… The way our freezer and pantry are stocked, we could probably do it again, but I bet there would be rebellion.
Sharon is doing a no spend month… or rather, spend no more than $750 not including fixed expenses.
Mutant Supermom is joining her with $670 plus fixed expenses.
