5 Things You Should Know – Part 309

Here are 5 things you should know.

1. TurboTax is legally required to offer a free option for people making less than $66k/yr.

However, they go far out of their way to make sure you can’t find it. Here’s a good link that details both the deceptive practices as well as where to find the tool, if you qualify.

2. Here is a technique for dealing with scary images or thoughts when trying to sleep.

Common for kids, not uncommon in adults, to watch a scary movie or think something scary and not be able to sleep.

Rather than try not to think about it, which is very difficult, let yourself think about it but control the narrative. Can’t stop picturing Jason from Friday the 13th? Think of him walking into your backyard and a giant bird flying overhead and pooping on his head.

Imagine the scary person walking into your kitchen and slipping on a banana peel, hitting his head and yelling, “sh*t” while peeing himself.

Or image a pack of dogs waiting for him and chasing him around town, etc.

3. You can boycott these labels if you’re planning on actually boycotting Nestlé.

4. A huge collection of games from the 1990s and earlier available to download for free.
