Unexpectedly Intriguing!
04 December 2009

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to our regular Friday, December 4, 2009 edition of On the Moneyed Midways, where we present the best posts we found in the best of the past week's business and money-related blog carnivals for your weekend reading pleasure!

We have a short edition this week, as we're falling in between the posting cycle for the biweekly and monthly business and money-related blog carnivals we regularly track. We also have a rare off-week for the Carnival of Real Estate, which looks to reappear in time for our next edition.

Other than that, we'd like to point you The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere! for the results of J. Money's experiment,, which we suspect many of you would love to try at least once in your life, but have been afraid to throw down the money it would take to find out if it would really work.

That post, and the rest of the best posts we found in the week that was, are ready for your review....
