Class activities for Tuesday, June 11

We learned about investing today. We talked about different rates of return and risks, from CDs to bonds to stocks. We learned that if a person invests $200 a month, starting at 20 years old and continuing throughout their working life, they will end up a millionaire!

We also talked about the deception of advertisements for alcohol, tobacco, and vaping. We learned that vaping is healthier than smoking, but still contains dangerous chemicals, including nicotine, formaldehyde, pesticides, and antifreeze! Vaping is better than smoking in the same way a bee sting is better than a wolf bite–both of them are harmful.

Class activities for Monday, June 10

We learned about credit cards today, how to use them wisely, how to pay them off in full each month, and how dangerous they can be if people buy more than they can afford.

We also learned about the dangers of tobacco today. Here’s a video that shows how contaminated a person’s lungs can get from smoking a pack a day for a month.

How Smoking 30 PACKS of Cigarettes Wrecks Your Lungs ● You Must See This !

This shows smoking a pack a day for 30 days! That’s 600 cigarettes! Same experiment VAPING for a month https://youtu.be/zFyUlBpy5gU Same experiment with WEED for a month https://youtu.be/D1U4tkxIfG4 If you are seriously trying to get off deadly cigarettes, you should try Vaping. 95% harm reduction.

Beyond the health concerns, we calculated how much money is wasted on cigarettes. A person smoking a pack a day would spend…

  • …about $200 a month.
  • …about $2200 a year.
  • …about $30,000 in 10 years.

If that person invested that $200 a month instead of buying cigarettes, they would have $36,000 after 10 years, and almost a MILLION dollars after 40 years! Smoking kills health and bank accounts.
