Hehe, well this would be a micro book of all the finance books I've read:

- Spend less than you earn
- Save at least 10% of your wage each week
- Invest it

I'm reading "Investing for Dummies" at the moment, it's not bad, I really need to sort out my superannuation!

what the hell? i have had regular shredded wheat but it wasn't THAT big! in harmony's picture, look at the spoon. unless that's a really small bowl and spoon, those things are about 12x the size of a mini wheat and still about 6x the size of the regular shredded wheats i'm thinking of... (ok numbers might be slightly exaggerated, i'm not quite good at the scaling here)

i guess you just have to break them up a lot before you eat then.. but what's the point? why even lump it together if it's gonna be too big to eat.... why not just a whole box full of unclumped shredded wheat? kinda like it is when you get to the bottom of the box anyway :)

i mean shit.. in the cartoon pic, those things are almost as big as that kid's head...

i say no thanks. pass me the lucky charms

Hehe, no that's a small bowl, one weetbix is about 6cm long so you can fit two of them in a normal breakfast bowl just fine. You have to pour milk on them and then break them up into bits with your spoon as you eat them. They're nothing like mini wheats though, ugh I hate mini wheats they taste awful to me. Weetbix kinda tastes like nothing at all, so you put muesli or fruit or honey or something on top of it. It's super healthy which is why it's still so popular. I like my weetbix :D

when i was a kid and went grocery shopping with my mom every week, i always wanted to get it because i thought it would taste like grapes... and she would never buy it for me because she said i wouldn't like it. so finally one day i convinced her to get it...
and she was right that i wouldn't like it :(

He's umm.. far away. :D He saw the shredded wheat from across the room and is on his way over. The 'photo' uses cutting edge camera angles and digital zoom technology to create the effect of a large headed boy staring into a bowl of gigantic shredded wheat.

I used to eat Grape Nuts when I was a kid. They're alright but don't have much flavor and are pretty crunchy until they've been in milk for awhile. They aren't very good after having sat in milk for too long but most all cereals are that way.
