    Money to teenagers now in exchange for a slice of your later income, frequently securitized as components of public offerings? This happens now, every day as “student loans.”

    The concept reminds me of my friend in high school who tried to auction the right to be his sole heir on eBay. He included his “prospectus,” future plans, GPA, etc. A little crazy, maybe, but not a bad investment, strictly speaking. eBay pulled the auction, but not before he got a couple of radio interviews out of it.

    Thackeray Walsh was beaten by the US government and every major US bank by about 70 years. The gov of course has special legislation to null and void any rights to bankruptcy on their ‘special investment’ in the future.

    As is so often the case, reality outstrips fiction in weirdness. Lumni is a company that will finance your college education in return for taking a percentage of your income after you graduate.

    This is fantastic. One of my dearest friends and my cousin’s girlfriend directed this! I’m so happy to see Cory call it out here on BB! Yay for Leah Bonvissuto! She is such a talented director.
