Dip into savings to pay off credit card?

My credit card is acruing interest at about the rate of netflix per month. I have enough cash to pay it off but that would be about half my balance of my savings account. Should I pay it off or should I keep chipping away with it and not putting any more than I have too on the card?

Good credit card for a young-ish couple looking to rebuild credit?

My girlfriend and I are older, full-time college students with part-time jobs. She has a couple of blemishes on her credit history, whereas mine is pretty limited. I'm looking for a good card to help us establish more credit and help repair hers, that can also offer cool rewards -- either in the form of cash back or rewards points. Details inside. [more inside]

Looking for kid-friendly videos about sleight-of-hand with cards.

My kids have become fascinated with card games lately, and more specifically, being able to handle the cards well and do stuff like shuffling, fanning them, flipping them domino-style, etc. I'd like to blow their minds with videos of people who are AMAZING with sleight of hand. But it needs to be clean and age-appropriate (ages span between 6 and 11). Basically, I'm looking for the Jackie Chan of card manipulation. [more inside]

What is this card? What does it mean?

This past December, I went to Union Square in Manhattan, where there is a regular farmers' market and a seasonal Christmas market, the latter of which attracted a lot more people than usual, so there was a teaming mass of humanity to contend with as well. On the pavement, one of them left behind what I first thought, from its larger-than-average-playing card size, and diagonal pattern on the back, to have been a tarot card. However, when I turned it over, it was like no other tarot card I had seen. (I wish I could upload a picture, I scanned it and save it as a .jpg.) It did have a color illustration of a torso of a man who looked like a somewhat gaudy version of Shakespeare but carried a lute. It was not a full-card illustration like the average tarot card but a double-ended one like the court cards in regular playing cards. Instead of any of the well-known regular playing card symbols or the specific tarot card symbolism, this card design has a small black eight-pointed star in each corner. I'm curious about what it is and what it means or if it has some kind of specialized usage/significance. It was in a clear plastic sleeve so I thought it was some sort of collectible item or a sample/display item from one of the merchants, but they weren't selling any other similar cards.

How do I go about releasing a card game into print-on-demand format whil

Question: how do I go about releasing a card game into print-on-demand format while retaining commercial rights? (I want to make it available for hobbyists and players, but don't want a company to scoop my design and sell it without attribution). I make card games as a hobby, and want to release them into the wild (so the term goes). I just don't want to yield commercial rights, since there's nothing worse than watching someone pull a Thomas Edison on your Tesla-esque ideas. Some people suggested looking at DrivethruCards.com and a few other places (Cards Against Humanity uses a free-license concept I'd love to know more about).

What to write on notes to family members who are ill / recuperating?

I have 2 family members on a different continent who are recovering from major (different) surgeries. One is an aunt in her 70s, the other is a cousin in her late 20s. They're both bed-bound and will be for a while. I can't do much from where I am, but do want them both to know I am thinking of them, and do something to brighten their days, even if briefly.

Very specific probability question

Hi guys: I hope that the green can help me on this- perhaps it's an easy problem for you: I have 9 different playing cards and 2 players. The first player can take between 3 to 5 cards and the remainder are given to the second player, and then the game begins. How many different starting hands (collectively between the two players) are there? The order of the cards in each player's hand does not matter. Thanks in advance!

Sparknotes Blank Study Cards Out of Print / Unavailable?

I've been studying Japanese for several years, and have always used the Sparknotes series of blank study cards - they seem to now be out of print, and I haven't gotten a clear answer from the company if/when they will become available again. I've filled in about 10,000+ of them and really don't want to switch my filing system to another size/style of cards, but manually cutting new ones will take way too long - does anyone know if/when they will become available again, or of an EXACT sized similar set of cards? Thank you.

Other games using Karuta Cards?

When I lived in Japan I spent new years with a family and we played a card game using Karuta cards. It wasn't a variation of Karuta... it had something to do with the portraits of the people on the cards? Like, whether they were princesses, ladies or lords. Sort of like Old Maid maybe? Does anyone know what this was?

What time-card should my small start-up use for DCAA compliance

Got a Government research contract - now everybody needs to start tracking their time with some kind of DCAA compliant time card system. We're a small 10 person start-up and there's a bewildering range of people and companies offering time tracking solutions. So I'm seeking the hive mind's experience. Should I just use a paper time-cards? If so, where can I find a good template or sample? Should I go with a software or web-based solution? We only have one contract and it encompasses almost everything we do so there's not a lot of complexity tracking multiple proposals. Our business is not to be a government contractor - this project is more in the line of a small business incubator grant.
